Reasons The Chicago Bears Will Beat The Minnesota Vikings in Primetime

National Anthem before a NFL football game against the Chicago Bears on Sunday Nov. 11 2018 in Minneapolis

The Bears, who have finished at the bottom of the NFC North Division for the past four seasons (and whom the Vikings have beaten the past three meetings and six of the past seven) have turned their fortunes around this year and now lead the Vikings in the North by half-a-game. I like our players to have fun when they play.

The league announced Wednesday it has opted to move the Week 14 game between the Rams and Bears at Soldier Field into prime time on December 9.

The Vikings trail Chicago, who is 6-3 overall, by a half game but the victor of Sunday's showdown will be alone in first place.

The Vikings will need a strong defense, an efficient ground game and positive results in the turnover battle to win Sunday's game and start the playoff chase off in the right direction.

"Both defenses are very similar", he said.

With the way Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio moves Mack around the field, it's nearly impossible to account for him every play. One can understand. They were #1 in the National Football League last season and have played well the past couple of weeks.

"They haven't changed that much defensively except for Khalil Mack, which adds to some of those poor throws and pressure", Zimmer said, when asked what they have changed to get so many picks.

According to TMZ , citing law enforcement sources, police received a call to Porter's Los Angeles home around noon. The model and actress, who had three children with the music mogul, died at her home in Toluca Lake, Calif.

Sporting News - Vinnie Iyer: "They won't be able to run well on Minnesota, and the Vikings' pass rush and corners will make it rough on Trubisky". "Great effort guy, there are a few times especially watching the Detroit film, which is a little mature-audiences-only kind of for a quarterback, but it's just effort". "But it's just effort".

"That's the difference between last year and this year - that we're making more plays on the ball, forcing fumbles, getting interceptions", said cornerback Prince Amukamara, who is one of 10 Bears with at least one interception this year. Well, if there's a practice [that gets sloppy with] dropped balls, missed assignments, repeated plays, and that thing continues within a practice, now it's time to let them know.

It will be about execution and doing what they've done all season long. His backup, ex-Bear Tom Compton, has been on and off the injury list all season and was again this week with a bad knee.

Minnesota left tackle Riley Reiff is better than Bears tackles Charles Leno and Bobby Massie, but its right tackle, Rashod Hill, isn't as good.

On the other hand, the best way to slow a pressure defense is to run the ball straight ahead between the tackles, and while the Bears are now No. 2 in the league against the run and the Vikings are No. 3, Minnesota's ground game with its backs is much better than the Bears' has been to date.

There is one factor here that solidly favors the Bears: Quarterback Mitch Trubisky is a much better scrambler and runner than Kirk Cousins.

"The No. 1 thing we need to see is where is he", offensive coordinator John DeFilippo said.
