The Bears and Vikings are playing to stay alive in the NFC wildcard race, and you guys can talk about it right here!

It smells like playoff football today for a few teams around the league, including the Chicago Bears and the Minnesota Vikings. The Bears-Vikings loser wouldn’t be completely eliminated from the wildcard race in the NFC, but a victory would give the winner a nice psychological boost as they play out the stretch.

For live updates on the game you can click here.

Keep in mind that open threads are rated WCG-MA.

Also, SB Nation is aware of the mobile ad glitch and are working on that.

And we have a Coral Update from SB Nation for you guys today! Here’s what has been done recently:

- We’ve removed ‘Read more of this conversation’! Yeah, we know. It wasn’t great. From Friday, no longer will ongoing conversations be pushed to another page. Instead, when they hit a certain depth, the view stays flat, and you can see who is replying to whom. This was developed in conjunction with our Feedback Group. Like everything we do, it’s a work in progress. We’ll be watching to see how it’s used, and how we can make it better. Let us know what you think.

- You can now see who’s Rec’ing your comments. Inside the ‘My Profile’ tab (where your comment history and notifications are), all your comments with Recs will now have a small arrow - click that to see who’s appreciating what you’re putting down.

- There’s a keyboard shortcut to quickly post a comment. We know what it’s like when you’re typing fast on Game Day and you just want to say it without moving the mouse. Hitting CONTROL-ENTER now posts your comment quick-smart without having to click ‘submit’.

- Better navigation. When you hit the bottom of the comments, you can now jump to the Discussions or Profile tab via a couple of easy links right there.

- Plus a bunch of small fixes and improvements.

And here’s what they’re prioritizing for early next year:

- Unread comments / Z Key. We hear you on this one, loud and clear. We’re working on it.

- A bunch of other improvements and features.

- Something else on your wish list? Let us know:
