The Bears have spent a majority of the season atop the NFC North, but their matchup against the Vikings could change that.
The Bears hold onto first place by a little more than .05 percentage points, and for the first time all season, they will have to defend their lead against a divisional opponent who can switch places in the standings with a win.
Both teams will be around full strength when they enter Soldier Field on Sunday with only Andrew Sendejo and Dion Sims listed as out for both teams.
Chicago enters this matchup with an aggressive defense and revitalized passing game, while Minnesota send Kirk Cousins and a defense that is 10th in points allowed and fifth in yards allowed.
If the Bears are going to win, it’ll be for some of these reasons.
Blaise’s reason the Bears will win on Sunday is because they are hot. The Bears have put up the third most points in the NFC and come off a string of blowout victories. Come Sunday against the Vikings, the Bears may do the same.
It will not be easy to score 20+ points against the Vikings, but they are running roughshod through their opponents.
If the Bears win, which I predict they will, Trubisky will be dominate, Cohen electric and Mack on the prowl. This is the best Bears football I have seen in my life, but then again I never saw any good season.
Christian’s reason the Bears will win on Sunday is because they’ll right the ship. For too long, the Bears have been awful in divisional games.
Last year, the Bears played the Vikings under the lights and almost squeaked out a win. Look for Thunder and Lightning to go big under the lights and give the Bears a HUGE divisional win.
Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen amass 250 total yards and account for 4 Bears touchdowns.
