The Chicago Bears (7-8) will bring an end to the 2019 season Sunday at Minneapolis when they take on the Vikings (10-5) in a game that not long ago felt like it could be a duel for a playoff berth.
Instead, the Bears, losers of two in a row, are left fighting for nothing more than pride. Ending the season with a win and an 8-8 record will make the offseason easier to tolerate than losing three straight and finishing the year under .500.
The Vikings, on the other hand, are locked-in as the No. 6 seed in the NFC playoffs. A win over the Bears does nothing to change that. As a result, Minnesota is expected to sit most of their key starters, including quarterback Kirk Cousins, and are treating Week 17's finale as a bye week to get healthy for next weekend's wild-card round.
Even though the game seems utterly meaningless, it does represent four more quarters of talent and roster evaluation for general manager Ryan Pace. Most notably, quarterback Mitch Trubisky could be facing the most important game of his career. If he puts up a stinker, the calls for the team to find his replacement will only get louder.
Here are all the ways you can watch, listen and live stream what might be a pivotal moment in the Bears' quarterback situation.
