Chicago went to Minnesota and put a beating on the Vikings today Mike Singletary Jerseys 2019
, dominating the game throughout and winning 24-10. That, combined with the Eagles’ win, knocked the Vikings out of the playoffs.And that means the Bears will be the No. 3 seed in the NFC and the Eagles will be the No. 6 seed. They’ll meet in what should be a very good playoff game at Soldier Field.As for the Vikings, today’s loss concludes a big disappointment of a first season with Kirk Cousins as the starting quarterback. Cousins couldn’t get anything going today against the excellent Bears defense White Gale Sayers Jerseys
, and he certainly didn’t look like the kind of quarterback you’d want to guarantee $84 million. Cousins’ contract means the Vikings are married to him as their starting quarterback going forward, but they need him to be better if they’re going to be title contenders.As for the Bears, they are absolutely title contenders. With their defense, they’re going to be a tough team for anyone to beat in January. But the Eagles know something about winning in January. They should have a great game next week.

, coming off just from just getting him acclimated, really, if you will, we felt like a half would be a good gauge for us and then you see how he feels. He felt great after the game. Hasn’t had any setbacks. Had a good week of practice. He’s continuing to get healthier as the days progress. It sounds like Soldier Field is in good condition and we’re expecting to have him out there. His leadership and his production has certainly given us a boost. You just feel his presence out there on the field. That’s one of those things that we’re sure glad to have Aqib back.”This meshes with what McVay had said earlier in the week Walter Payton Jerseys 2019
, that “unless something sets us back, he’s going to be a full go and go from the start to the finish.”The Rams need Talib down the stretch. Their defense has a knack for stepping up when needed, but it still does plenty of bending and breaking and surrendering of points.The offense is good enough to overcome those lapses. At some point in the playoffs, however White Devin Hester Jerseys
