NFL Monday Night Football: Bears Vs. VikingsPublished November 16, 2020 by Sol FH
The Bears host the Vikings on Prime Time NFL Monday Night Football, tonight at 18:00 GMT.
What a difference a week could make for the Minnesota Vikings as they travel to Soldier Field to take on the Chicago Bears in the grand finale of Week 10. True, this game has the potential to be disappointing, due in part to the inept offense of the Bears and the hurting Vikings' defense, but, with any luck, we will be treated to a classic rivalry between two teams looking to make the playoffs.
The Bears are 5-4 but they have lost three games in-a-row, all terribly. The Bears' offense is in rough shape. They have amassed injuries throughout their offensive line, which has restricted their rush game and caused QB Nick Foles to take some unneeded hits and major loss of yardage.
Do not forget though that the Bears started the season 5-1, so they could potentially get back to their winning ways, but they will need to stop a Vikings team that is coming off two wins in-a-row, including a big win against the Division-leading Green Bay Packers, and other Divisional rivals, the Detroit Lions. All that is left for the Vikings to beat is the Bears, which would put them in a spot to make a run for at least second place.
For the Vikings, Dalvin Cook has been the reason for their recent success. Minnesota has won three of its last four thanks to Cook's incredible rushing, now averaging 27.1 points per game. The Vikings' defense has been the real problem lately, which is not something common for this team. They are giving up 29.3 points per game, the eighth-most in the NFL.
