QB Job Webb made his first start for the Vikings and he faced Michael Vick and the Eagles.
No one thought the Eagles would fall to the 5-9 Vikings, who got beat by the Bears 40-14 last Monday night.
The Vikings defeated the Eagles last night and that means the Bears will be the #2 seed in the NFC and will get a first round bye.
The Bears can still get the #1 seed in the NFC, which means they would get home field throughout the playoffs, but they would have to see the Falcons fall to the Panthers, the Saints fall to the Bucs and they would have to beat the Packers.
The game last night was a shock to the football world. I never found myself cheering for the Vikings, until last night’s tilt with the Eagles. The Eagles seem to be a tad overrated.
Thank goodness for Joe Webb. He and the rest of the Vikings clearly want head coach Leslie Fraser back next season.
Thanks Vikings for helping us out one last time, even though you probably didn’t want to.
Maybe the Bears can stop the Packers from making the playoffs and stop everyone from jumping on their bandwagon as well.
Bears-Packers preview coming Friday.
