Only three weeks have passed since Chicago’s loss to Minnesota and here we are again.
Will the Vikings reign supreme once again? Will the Bears avenge their Week 15 loss?
After the Bears’ 17-9 loss to the Vikings in Week 15, ultimately eliminating them from any postseason hope, Chicago gained some momentum against the Seahawks, closing out Week 16 with a 25-24 win. It was no surprise that Week 17 would end with a win for the Bears, as they defeated the Giants 29-3.
With a current record of 6-10 and no postseason potential, the Bears have a lot to prove this Sunday as they battle the Vikings for a little taste of redemption before hanging up their jerseys for the season.
And it won’t be easy by any means.
The Vikings’ Justin Jefferon ranks second in the NFL this season in receiving yards, with a total of 1,509. He has the second-highest total by a Vikings player in a single season, right behind Hall of Famer Randy Moss, who totaled 1,632 yards in 2003.
