Game 10

at
When: 1:00 PM EST November 16th
Where: Soldier Field (Chicago, IL)
TV/Radio: CBS (TV), KFAN 100.3 (Radio)

Coverage Map: http://506sports.com/nfl.php?yr=2014&wk=11

Notable Injuries:

Vikings - Probable: TE Kyle Rudolph (groin), TE Chase Ford (foot), RB Jerick McKinnon (low back), Questionable: OT Mike Harris (ankle), DE Scott Crichton (hip), Doubtful: None, Out: None
Bears - Probable: TE Martellus Bennett (ribs), CB Tim Jennings (knee), WR Brandon Marshall (ankle), CB Terrance Mitchell (illness), DE Cornelius Washington (illness), Questionable: WR Josh Morgan (shoulder), Doubtful: OT Jordan Mills (ribs), Out: OL Eben Britton (illness), DE Trevor Scott (knee), LB Darryl Sharpton (hamstring)

The Vikings lead the series against the Bears 54-50-2 (including 1 playoff game), but have lost 7 out of the last 9, with 5 of those losses coming at Soldier Field. The last time the Vikings met the Bears in a Week 11 game was at the Metrodome on 11/25/2001. It was an ugly game in which the Vikings outgained the Bears 316 yds to 235 yds, but lost 13-6 on Sunday Night Football. It was the penalties that killed many Vikings drives, as they tallied up 11 penalties for 75 yards, while the Bears only had 2 for 15 yds. Daunte Culpepper was 26-46 for 209 yds and 1 Int. The Bears' Jim Miller was 10-21 for a measly 97 yds, yet that was enough for the victory (of which 51 yds went to David Terrell on 2 recs). It was that type of season the Vikings were having, which eventually ended with a 5-11 record and the Sherriff's firing 5 weeks later.

Please keep all discussion about the game here.

I thought I was late, considering how the game was pretty much over a couple of hours ago. Laughing

This will be an interesting test for the Bears. It's possible they could pack it in and be done for the year after the last few weeks. It is also possible we run into a hornets nest of angry Bears who want to make up for the embarassment of this week's game against the Packers.

Personally, I think the Vikings have passed by the Bears. They seem like a team on the way down and the Vikings are a very young team on the rise. The Vikings need to win this game if they want to keep any playoff hopes alive.

If we can get AD back in the fold with a few days to practice, I like our chances. If not, it just depends on which Bears team shows up.

Kind of a true measuring stick in many ways

The Bears have allowed ovr 100 pts in their last two games and are a bad team right now. This is a game we should win if we want to be a team that has possibly turned the corner

Secondly, we haven't won in Soldier Field in many years. A good team would find a way to win there; particularly against a bad team.

Our playoff chances are slim to begin with. Its a division game we need to win. Our opponent is coming off an embarrassing loss on SNF to a divisional rival. I can only hope Sunday brings us some great football!

Even on the road, I still like our chances. Aside from playing turnover free football, if we can get consistent pressure on Cutler, forcing him into mistakes, and make the big plays this offense has been missing, we should be able to get our 3rd straight win this season.

We'll be getting Kyle Rudolph back for this game, and potentially Adrian Peterson. That will be a huge bonus to us!

I like where we are headed. We have a lot to look forward to. Cool

Usually I get worried about playing a team after they get thoroughly embarrassed the way that the Bears did last night, but not this time. The Bears look like a disaster and they are looking at, blaming, and pointing fingers at each other. That locker room is just ready to start eating each other.

Meanwhile the Vikings are rested and hopefully well prepared after their bye week.

Minnesota 27
Chicago 13

The Bears are a dumpster fire right now. This is a game we need to win coming out of the bye. Hopefully we can get some momentum here and rattle off a few wins to try to make a push for the playoffs.

Jared Allen: “We have good players, we obviously aren’t a good team. When you get a beat-down like this, you can’t say much else. We have talent. We just need to find a way to win games. At the end of the day, you have to come back to work. It isn’t like we aren’t preparing right; we prepare well. We need to find a way to transfer it to game day. You have to be a professional. We don’t need motivational speeches; we don’t need a pat on the back. We get paid to show up and win games.”

If we can get some momentum for the playoffs, that would be great, but I'm not too worried about the playoffs this year. Getting a middle of the pack pick 15-20 would allow us to get a solid LB or safety, possibly, would be better in some ways, but obviously, if you get to the playoffs even if you don't have much shot to win the Super Bowl, it's the first step that you need, so might as well get in. And I do like the Vikings chances against the Bears, but division games are pretty difficult to predict, especially since the Vikings are average offensively.

If the Vikings could have beaten the Bills, and the Gophers could have beaten Illinois, both teams would have been in a great place in November for the first time in a long, long time.

If Peterson is back, I'll guarantee a win. But the Vikings haven't won at Soldier field since 2007, so I'm hesitant to say we win without him. I think our team is definitively better, but the Bears used to have incredible HFA.
