Football Sunday. There’s nothing like it, and when it’s win-or-go-home, it’s even more fun. We’ve only got three more football Sundays left, so you better cherish this one before you go into football withdrawal.
Sunday kicks off with an AFC matchup between the Chargers and Ravens. These two teams faced off just two weeks ago. The Chargers, hosting the 8-6 Ravens, couldn’t muster much of anything against the tough Baltimore defense. The Ravens came out on top 22-10 in a fairly comfortable win.
This week could be even tougher for the Chargers, as they have to travel to Baltimore for the opening week of the playoffs. Luckily for LA, the weather in Baltimore is uncharacteristically warm this January afternoon, with temperatures expected in the 50s by kickoff.
After that game finishes, it’s time for the marquee matchup of the week. The Chicago Bears, in the playoffs for the first time since 2010, will host the soaring Philadelphia Eagles. For the Bears, it’s been a steadily impressive season. They’ve looked like one of the best teams in football from September to December.
The Eagles, on the other hand, were sitting at 4-6 just a couple months ago. But, once again, Nick Foles has taken over for an injured Carson Wentz and led the Eagles to three straight victories—and over the Rams, Texans and Washington, no less.
Can the Bears keep the good times rolling or will the defending NFL Champs spoil Chicago’s first postseason run in nearly a decade?
Here’s how to watch.
