Series History: The Minnesota Vikings lead series 60-54-2. Chicago won both games last season.
Bears are 2pt favorites against the Vikings
Welcome to Chicago: "Vikings fans will often wince thinking about watching their team play in Illinois, with a 3-15 record on the road against the Bears since 2000, but as coach Mike Zimmer was quick to remind reporters this week, two of those wins have come in the past four visits (2015 and 2017)" FoxSports, 9/26)
On the Game: "Minnesota’s defensive game plan is simple: Keep Trubisky in the pocket and force him to beat them. The Bears need to establish the run game early and find ways to roll Trubisky out of the pocket and do what he does best: Make plays on the run, whether that’s with his arm or legs. The Vikings defense is giving up 15.7 points per game, and it’s unlikely that this game is a high-scoring affair. Chicago’s offense needs to do just enough — move the ball, get their defense some rest and don’t commit any turnovers" (Barbieri, BearsWire, 9/11)
