The host Chicago Bears hardly looked eliminated from the playoffs as they whipped Green Bay today, 35-7. The Packers entered the game fighting for home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, but left with no shot at that after giving up two interceptions and two blocked punts, reports the Chicago Tribune. The Bears' 11-minute, 18-play opening drive set the tone. Elsewhere:
- Something had to give in the battle of long losing streaks as Detroit held on to beat Kansas City, backed by 102 yards rushing and a score from journeyman T.J. Duckett.
- Donavan McNabb threw three scoring passes as Philly spoiled the Saints' shot at a wild-card spot with a 38-23 win. Kevin Curtis scored twice for the Eagles.
