Vikings vs Bears… Good morning Horners! Monday night under the lights, outside, on grass, what could go wrong?! Kirk Cousins will go into his 10th Monday Night Football game hoping to win his first one. Mike Zimmer will face Matt Nagy and hope to get his first when against this team since 2017. The contest will take place at Soldier Field in Chicago with your 3-5 Minnesota Vikings at the 5-3 Chicago Bears. The Vikings are 4-16 since 2000 in that stadium, that seems to have turned into a house of horrors for whatever reason. Will the Vikings win?
Dalvin Cook is coming off two consecutive games with over 200 yards and the question is will he be able to make it three? This stadium has not been good to him in the last two years where he had only 12 yards of rushing int 2018 and 35 yards worth of rushing last year. That is a testament to the Bears defense focusing on the run. If they do it again, will the Vikings improved offensive line play be the difference and allow Dalvin to go wild, or at least protect Kirk better if he needs to throw more than 20 times a game? We know how good Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen have been, but will they be targeted at a higher level or with a game plan used in Green Bay against the Packers and against the Detroit Lions still continue?
Nick Foles will be starting for a Bears offense that has not produced a lot of points this season. Can Mike Zimmer’s defense take advantage of that? We know this game will be a challenge because it always is. What weird things do you envision happening in the game?
