The Chicago Bears need to do one thing to shock the Saints on Wild Card Sunday.
The Chicago Bears made the playoffs to the surprise of many. It wouldn’t have been a surprise when they started 5-1 but they went on to lose six in a row following that. It was tough but they won three of their last four to sneak in as the seventh seed at 8-8. They are lucky that the league expanded the playoffs during the COVID-19 season but they are in.
The New Orleans Saints are the opponent that drew the Bears as they go into the dance as the second seed. Saints fans probably aren’t as confident as they should be as their team has had a few recent playoffs collapses. In 2019 esspecially, the Saints lost in the first round to the Minnesota Vikings who were big underdogs. It does feel a little bit different this year but it is still proof that the game has to be played on the field.
