These two teams played in Chicago back in Week 10 on Monday Night Football. In a game that nobody will label a classic by any stretch of the imagination, the Vikings managed to hold off the Bears by a final score of 19-13, thanks to two touchdown passes from Kirk Cousins to Adam Thielen.
The Vikings will have to win this one just to get their home record on the seasons to .500. They’re currently sitting at 3-4 on the year at U.S. Bank Stadium, which is something that’s almost unheard of for a Vikings’ team that is used to enjoying a significant home field advantage.
Both of these teams come into this game at 6-7 and on the outside looking in at the NFC playoff field. The winner of this one will still have an opportunity to overtake the Arizona Cardinals for the #7 and final playoff spot in the NFC, while the loser will pretty much see the competitive portion of their 2020 season come to an end.
Kickoff for this one is scheduled for noon Central time on FOX, with the play-by-play being handled by Chris Myers and former Vikings’ wide receiver Greg Jennings.
