Hate to use the phrase, backs against the wall when you're still above .500, but that might be where the Bears are. After a 5-1 start they've skidded and struggled to score and win games.
But head coach Matt Nagy handed over play-calling duties to Bill Lazor, so we'll see if this can inject some life into the Bears' offense.
And it's desperately needed.
The Vikings, despite their record, have been better as of late.
This game could set the tone for postseason expectations for the Bears.
