It’s Wild Card weekend, with emphasis on wild. We’ve got the best slate of games we’ve had in years and it’s capped off with the 4:40 p.m. EST kickoff between the Bears and the Eagles.

The Eagles find themselves charging into the playoffs led by Nick Foles for the second straight year. The Eagles have been unstoppable in recent weeks and have resembled the red-hot team they were in last year’s playoffs.

They’re not the only team riding high, however. Nobody seems able to penetrate the Chicago Bears defense. Combine that with the creativity Matt Nagy has brought to the offense and Chicago has turned themselves into a whole new team in a single offseason. They’re about as complete a team as there is in these playoffs.

The evening matchup may just come down to which team is hotter.

Can Jim Schwartz’s defense make Mitch Trubisky uncomfortable? Will Nick Foles whip up more postseason heroics? Who takes the win? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
