If you were hoping that two former Andy Reid assistants were going to light up the scoreboard in the final game of Wild-Card Weekend, it’s time to recalibrate your expectations.
Cody Parkey has made both field goal attempts he has been presented with and the Bears have a 6-3 lead against the Eagles.
It’s been a rough first half for both offenses. Alshon Jeffery has made some big plays, but Nick Foles has throw two interceptions. Mitch Trubisky has thrown a few near-picks, but has led two scoring drives despite his struggles in the first half. Any time anyone in navy and orange wants to break off a chunk play is fine by me.
Until then, we’ll have to settle for Roquan Smith’s first postseason interception as the highlight of the half.
WHAT A PICK!@RoquanSmith1 💪

After scoring points at the end of the first half, the Bears get the ball to start things after intermission. You couldn’t ask for much more. I mean, other than a bigger lead. But because beggars can’t be choosers, I’ll gladly accept a first-half lead in a playoff game.
Let’s see what halftime adjustments these teams make. If the Bears can pull it off, they’ll take their talents to Los Angeles for a rematch against the Rams in Round 2.
