The Vikings need to win this Sunday and they will be in the playoffs, that simple.

It sounded like it was going to be easy. Minnesota won and the Eagles won, so it would be decided this week. Chicago was already in because they won the division. Word had it that Chicago was going to just put in all their back ups early in the game rather than risk their starters. Then the Los Angeles Rams lost. Now the Bears have a chance to be the 2nd seed. Rams lose, Bears win, then Bears are the 2nd seed. So, do the Bears put in their starters and try and get a first round bye, or do they put their starters. Maybe that's why the Viking Bear game was moved to a later time, so the Bears would know? Or do the Bears say, they don't want to play the Eagles because the Eagles are dangerous with Nick Foles at quarterback and could beat the Bears in the playoffs? If the Bears want to play the Vikings because they know they have a shot at beating the Vikings, they let the Vikings win so the Bears will face them in the first round?

It surely adds some drama to the game today.
