The NFL postseason and division titles are on the line for both the Chicago Bears (8-6) and the Philadelphia Eagles (8-6), who will clash in the "City of Brotherly Love" on Sunday Night Football.

The Bears and Eagles are looking to clinch their respective divisions, with Philadelphia clinching the NFC East with a win on Sunday coupled by a loss by the Dallas Cowboys against Washington earlier in the day while Chicago can lock up the NFC North division with a win over Philadelphia and losses by both the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers.

The Eagles five-game were on a five-game win streak with QB Nick Foles going on a hot-streak after replacing starter Michael Vick, passing for 2,398 yards with 23 touchdowns and two interceptions for the season but had that snapped last week, losing to the Minnesota Vikings 48-30. Foles went 30-for-48 and threw for 428 yards and three touchdowns but tosssed an interception and was sacked three times in the game.

Chicago defeated the Cleveland Browns last week, welcoming back QB Jay Cutler, who had missed four weeks of the season with a high ankle sprain, beating the Browns 38-31 on the road. Cutler struggled at first, throwing two interceptions early in the game, but ended the afternoon going 22-for-31 and throwing for 265 yards and three touchdowns.

"The guys rallied around me," said Cutler. "I'd be lying if I didn't say there was (pressure) with everything on the outside and as well as Josh has played. But this was the plan all along and no one really flinched in our building."

You can catch the Chicago Bears - Philadelphia Eagles Sunday Night Football broadcast 8:30 p.m. Sunday night on NBC.

In other Sunday Week 16 NFL action:

New Orleans Saints (10-4) at Carolina Panthers (10-4)
The upstart Panthers are tied for the division lead with the Saints but New Orleans holds the tiebreaker over Carolina after defeating them in Week 14 of the season. The Saints missed a golden opportunity to extend their lead over the Panthers last week, losing to the St. Louis Rams 27-16, once again struggling on the road, losing their fourth consecutive road-game. Saints QB Drew Brees threw two interceptions, going 39-of-56 for 393 yards and a touchdown against the Rams.

The Panthers want payback after getting embarrassed by the Saints in New Orleans two weeks ago, with Brees picking apart Carolina's highly-touted defense, throwing for 313 yards and four touchdowns in the 31-13 loss at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. A win at home over the Saints and a win next week against the Atlanta Falcons will give the Panthers their first postseason berth since 2008, as well as bye and a home game in the NFC playoffs.

TV: 1:00 p.m. on Fox

Dallas Cowboys (7-7) at Washington Redskins (3-11)
The Dallas Cowboys are scrambling after losing control of the division, a game behind the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC East standings, after a crushing defeat at the hands of the Green Bay Packers last week. The Cowboys were up 26-3 at halftime before they lost 37-36, with QB Tony Romo throwing two interceptions in the last three minutes of the game. The Cowboys hold the tiebreaker over the Eagles and need to beat the struggling Washington Redskins this week in order to force a huge showdown for the NFC East title with the Eagles at AT&T Stadium next week.

Washington, who shut down Robert Griffin III for the season last week, hopes to play the role of spoiler, in what has been a long season for last year's NFC East champions. Kirk Cousins replaced Griffin, and played solid in Washington's 27-26 loss to the Atlanta Falcons, throwing for 381 yards and three touchdowns, including two interceptions.

TV: 1:00 p.m. on Fox

Arizona Cardinals (9-5) at Seattle Seahawks (12-2)
The Seahawks, who have the best record in the NFL, are looking to lock up home-field advantage throughout the playoffs with a win over the Cardinals Sunday afternoon. The Seahawks are undefeated at home since drafting QB Russell Wilson, who has a passer rating of 119.2 with 29 touchdowns and only six interceptions playing at CenturyLink Field over the last two seasons.

The Cardinals, who have played well under new head coach Bruce Arias, having won six out of their last seven games including two straight, travel to Seattle fighting for their playoff lives, currently one game behind the San Francisco 49ers, who are holding on to the second wild-card spot. A loss at CenturyLink Field could eliminate the Cardinals from playoff contention.

TV: 4:05 p.m. on Fox

New England Patriots (10-4) at Baltimore Raven (8-6)
The Baltimore Ravens, who are hanging on to the last wild-card spot in the AFC, trying to fend off the Miami Dolphins, San Diego Chargers, and Pittsburgh Steelers, still have a shot at taking the AFC North division if division leader, the Cincinnati Bengals, take a loss on Sunday. The Ravens have won five out of their last six games and would love to set up a crucial Week 17 showdown against the Bengals to determine the AFC North division title, but only if they can get past the New England Patriots this weekend.

The Patriots hold a two-game lead over the Miami Dolphins in the AFC East division, but stumbled against the Dolphins last weekend in South Beach, losing to Miami 24-20 at Sun Life Stadium. The Patriots can clinch their fifth straight AFC East title with a win over Baltimore and a loss by the Dolphins, and may lock up a first-round bye with a win over the Ravens and losses by the Bengals and Indianapolis Colts.
