That's a game we're not going to forget any time soon.
The Eagles pulled off one of the most dramatic postseason wins of our lives on Sunday night, coming from behind to beat the Chicago Bears 16-15 in the NFC Wild Card round (see observations).
It looked pretty bleak there in the final seconds as Chicago drove down the field to set up a game-winning field goal. But then Cody Parkey, the former Eagles kicker who hit the uprights on four different kicks in one game against the Lions earlier this season, did it again with 10 seconds remaining and the game on his foot.

Wow. A double doink to end your season and send the Eagles to the divisional round against New Orleans.
On the drive prior, Nick Foles pulled out some more playoff magic to give the Eagles that 16-15 lead and ultimately the win. Starting at their own 40 after a Bears punt, the Birds went on a 12-play, 60-yard drive that almost ended with 4th-and-goal from the 2-yard line. But Foles, with the game on the line, found Golden Tate just over the goal line to give the Birds the one-point lead.
An unsuccessful — but extremely close — two-point conversion gave Chicago the chance to drive and win the game, leading up to the the big Parkey miss.
Eagles and Bears fans reacted in ... different ... ways.
