Wild-Card Weekend will finish with an intriguing showdown between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Chicago Bears.
The reigning champions should be the underdogs tonight, as the Bears feature one of the best defenses in recent years. Nonetheless, the Eagles have gone 3-0 since Nick Foles became the starter in Week 15.
Although Philadelphia has to prepare for a hostile environment in Solider Field, the weather shouldn’t play a factor.
History has shown that Chicago thrives in rigid weather, but it appears the Windy City won’t be too brutal for this playoff showdown.
Instead of preparing for run-heavy strategies from these teams, Mitch Trubisky and Foles will have their chance to sling the pigskin.
Both teams possess elite minds at head coach, as Doug Pederson and Matt Nagy are two of the best in the business. With postseason games usually coming down to the last drive, it’ll be interesting to see which team can advance to the next round.
The forecast for today’s game includes no fog or precipitation, which bodes well for the Eagles.
