Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy had his family in attendance during Sunday's matchup against the Vikings and it appears one of his sons wasn't happy about what a Vikings fan had to say.

"They were at the game last night. One of the Vikings fans I think was maybe harassing a little bit and one of my twins kind of harassed back, so he was a little fired up," Nagy said during a Monday press conference. "I won’t get into details, but it was all in fun." 

Nagy said his four boys are enjoying being part of the team's epic season so far. 

"They are really pumped right now because the one thing is when they go to school, they have kind of got that boss walk," he said. 

And the kids even have a little advice for their father. 

"The advice they give me is just to keep scoring -- trying to score touchdowns," he said. 

That advice could come in handy as the Bears prepare to host an NFC Wild Card Round game against the Philadelphia Eagles at Soldier Field Sunday. 

"This is, like I said yesterday, this is where it gets real, and it’s exciting to have one at home, and again, I’m going to just let everybody know here in Chicago how important it is to get those fans to be as crazy as they have ever been, and I can’t wait for it," Nagy said.

The Bears, who finished the season with a 12-4 record after beating the Minnesota Vikings, will welcome the reigning Super Bowl champions to the lakefront next week as they play in the wild card round for the first time in nearly 25 years.
