The NFL Playoffs are about to begin. Here’s how to stream the matchup between the Chicago Bears and the New Orleans Saints. 

The Chicago Bears enter the NFL Playoffs as the 7-seed in the NFC after winning three of their final four games. Meanwhile, the New Orleans Saints enter as the 2-seed after having won 11 of their last 13 games.

How We Got Here

The Saints lead the Bears 17-15 in the all-time series. New Orleans has won six-straight games against Chicago, including one earlier this year.

This game is the first NFL Playoff game to be aired on Nickelodeon. I suppose that doesn’t really impact the game, but I somehow missed the fact that Nickelodeon would be airing a Playoff game.

At first glance, you might be quick to dismiss the 8-8 Bears. However, there is some hope for Chicago. Since 2000, five teams have entered the NFL Playoffs with the often maligned 8-8 record. Those five teams have gone 4-1 in the first round.

The Saints did knock off the Bears earlier this season, but there’s a new (old) face under center in Center. Mitch Trubisky will start on Sunday. Since December, Trubisky has thrown six touchdown passes to three interceptions.

The Bears have forced 15 fumbles, tallied 35 sacks and picked off 10 passes this season. While they might not be the Monsters of the Midway, they are no cake walk.

New Orleans, meanwhile, looked like the premiere team in the NFC for most of the year. Still, a number of injuries hampered the Saints, not the least of which being 11 cracked ribs for a 42-year-old quarterback.

The good news is that while Alvin Kamara missed the season finale, he will likely get to play on Sunday as he returns from the reserve/COVID list. That’s huge news, because the Saints offensive success stems from their ability to break solid runs on first down. New Orleans is tied with Tennessee, averaging 5.1 yards per rush on first down.

Oh, and Kamara also leads New Orleans with 83 catches.
