The Philadelphia Eagles and Chicago Bears will meet in the NFC Wild Card Game.

Chicago opened as a 5.5-point favorite against Philadelphia. The Bears will be playing their first home playoff game since January 2011, when they lost to the Packers, 21-14.

Matt Nagy became the first Bears head coach since Paddy Driscoll in 1956 to make the playoffs in their first season. Eleven different head coaches have had an attempt at this mark and failed since Driscoll in 1956.
