Rookie of the Year candidate Matt Ryan led the Atlanta Falcons to a 24-17 victory over the Minnesota Vikingsin the Metrodome to clinch a playoff spot for the Falcons and keep the Bears’ hopes for an NFC North title alive. The Bears must hold up their end of the bargain and defeat the Green Bay Packers on Monday night to keep their improbable playoff push going. Here’s my favorite part: Vikings fans will have to root for the hated Packers on Monday night. Enjoy!
In other good news, San Diego defeated Tampa Bay and Washington outlasted Philadelphia on Sunday. Coupled with the Dallas loss on Saturday night at the hands of rookie Joe Flacco and Baltimore, the final Wild Card slot is still up for grabs. Thanks to all the teams looking out for the Beloved Bears.
