The Vikings will miss the playoffs with a loss against the Bears.

The Chicago Bears (11-4) do not have much to play for on Sunday when they visit the Minnesota Vikings (8-6-1) as 4.5-point road underdogs on the National Football League odds at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com in the regular-season finale for both teams.

"For us, playoffs have already started", Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said. The longer the Eagles are in the tournament, the more a Wentz sighting is likely to happen.

It's Alabama 45, Oklahoma 34, as the Heisman Trophy victor has thrown for two touchdowns and now run for another. But as we know, these things can be fluid.

Making their first playoff appearance in eight years, the third-seeded Bears will host the sixth-seeded Eagles in the wild-card round next Saturday or Sunday. There's no magic formula. Listen to the game on 780 AM, 105.9 FM, followed by the officials Bears postgame show.

The Bears smothered the Vikings outside of one penalty-aided drive, with the most notable thing Kirk Cousins did was get in a headed argument with wide receiver Adam Thielen toward the end of the first half.

It sets up a wild-card matchup between the Eagles and the team that gave them an assist, the third-seeded Bears, in Chicago. "I want to win".

Williams has 66 carries for 319 yards and four touchdowns to go along with nine receptions for 152 yards. This year, the Cavaliers expected to win, and did, with a 28-0 win over SC in the Belk Bowl .

"We ain't sneaking in - we're kicking the m--f--ing door down", safety Malcolm Jenkins said during his postgame speech to the players.

Chicago, the NFC North division champion, can not finish any worse than third but must defeat the Vikings and hope for San Francisco to defeat the Rams in Los Angeles to jump into the No. 2 seed and earn a first-round bye. For that to occur, the Vikings, Eagles and Rams all would have to lose Sunday. "This could be our last game or we can go forward". Despite it sidelining Mitch Trubisky for two games, the Bears quarterback says he doesn't dwell on the past, and definitely won't be thinking about it heading into Sunday's game. "We know that we have to win this game in order to get into them". "Like I've said a bunch of times, this training staff has been really great in keeping me as prepared as possible to play physically, and credit to them". The crowd erupted when word spread that the Bears had scored, giving Chicago a 21-10 lead.

Credit Bears coach Matt Nagy for setting the proper tone.
