GREEN BAY, Wis. --- The Bears still don't know who their first-round playoff opponent will be, but they do know they will host a divisional playoff game at Soldier Field on Sunday, Jan. 16 at 12-noon.
The Philadelphia Eagles, the winner of Sunday night's St. Louis Rams-Seattle Seahawks game and the New Orleans Saints remain possible opponents heading into wild card weekend.
"We wanted to play well and we wanted to carry some of the momentum we've built the last couple week into the playoffs," tight end Greg Olsen said after Sunday's 10-3 loss to the Packers at Lambeau Field. "We didn't get anybody hurt, which is a good thing. We didn't end the regular season the way we hoped but we're still in a good position to make a run. We've just got to clean some stuff up this week, get healed up and play better."
The winner of Sunday night's Rams-Seahawks game will host the Saints on Saturday at 3:30. The Bears may not know their first-round opponent until after the Packers-Eagles game, which is scheduled for a 3:30 p.m. kickoff on Sunday.
In the AFC, the Indianapolis Colts will host the New York Jets on Saturday at 7 p.m. The Kansas City Chiefs will host the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday at 12 noon.
"We're looking forward to it," running back Matt Forte said of the week off. "We get a little break, so everybody can get healthy and get ready for that first playoff game and try to make a run to the Super Bowl."
