CHICAGO, IL – The Philadelphia Eagles opened the season with the Washington Redskins and took care of business coming out on top 24-21. Unfortunately slip ups vs. the (6-10) Kansas City Chiefs and the (8-8) Dallas Cowboys made the end of the season interesting as they clawed their way into the 5th playoff spot.
With the NFC North down this year the Chicago Bears eased their way through the division (4-2 record) and held serve to secure the 4th NFC playoff seed and home field advantage in the wild card round.
The Eagles are losers of two straight and their point production has slipped. During this stretch QB Michael Vick has thrown a whopping 8 interceptions. The Bears on the other hand are winners of 5 in a row. However, only one of those teams had a record above .500 so it will be interesting to see if they can make it 6.
