Bears are 6.5pt underdogs against the Vikes
Series History: The Bears trail the all-time series with the Vikings 57-52-1. The Bears won the last meeting 20-10 on Halloween night at Soldier Field.
Why to Watch?!?: "If the Bears (3-12) are looking for any morsel of additional motivation, they can try this: They need a victory over the Vikings to avoid standing alone with the worst record for a Bears team since the NFL expanded to a 16-game schedule in 1978. As it is, the best the Bears can do is join the 1997, 1998 and 2002 Bears teams that finished 4-12. And it's debatable where this team would rank among them." (Potash, 12/26, Sun-Times)
