Vikings advance, Bears go home, Packers lose 2nd seed

The Minnesota Vikings beat the Green Bay Packers 37-34 today in Minnesota, sending the Vikings to the wildcard playoff game next week to face the Packers (again) in Green Bay. The Packers would have had a bye week had they beat their division rival Vikings.

The Chicago Bears beat another division rival the Detroit Lions, but needed the Vikings to lose to advance to the playoffs. The Vikings victory seals the end to the Bears disappointing season.
