The 7-3 Chicago Bears will host the Minnesota Vikings this Sunday at 1 pm at Soldier Field. The Bears are coming off a tough loss while the Vikings have been surprisingly good this season. The Vikings enter the game at 6-4 with playoff aspirations of their own. Both teams represent the same division and a win for the Vikings could get them into the hunt for the division depending on how the Packers do. Currently the Bears are tied with the Packers for the division lead.
The Bears are coming off one of their more embarrassing losses last Monday night to the 49ers. There, they fell 32-7 as the 49ers backup QB, Kaepernick, outperformed the Bears backup Jason Campbell. Campbell was overall awful and the Bears defense looked more like the worst D in the league then one of the best. The Bears do hope to have Jay Cutler back for this game. He was knocked out with a concussion 2 games ago against the Houston Texans, and has not seen the field since. The Bears have not won a game since his departure as well.
The Vikings, meanwhile, are coming off their bye week and should be healthy. Their last game was a 34-24 victory over the Detroit Lions. The Vikings have surprised many as Adrian Peterson looks to be back to form after a late 2011 injury. Their sophomore QB Christian Ponder has also made huge steps at his position to get better. The game surely can go either way and should be a fun one to watch.
