Chicago Bears vs. Minnesota Vikings
Solider Field, Chicago
12:00pm central on Fox
The Minnesota Vikings have lost three in a row and the Chicago Bears are coming off the biggest win of the season against the Packers. The momentum is with the Bears and once they get back in front of their home crowd, I think that it will be evident whether or not the season has truly been turned around.
The Chicago Bears defense will have to worry about rookie Vikings quarterback Adrian Peterson, who has had a great season thusfar. The defense is still hurting, although they should have some key folks back.
Current injury situation: Cornerback Nate Vasher (groin) and defensive tackle Darwin Walker (knee) are listed as doubtful on the injury report for Sunday’s game against Minnesota; linebacker Lance Briggs (hamstring), tackle John Tait (ankle) and Tillman (ribs) are questionable; and linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo (foot), defensive tackle Tommie Harris (knee) and middle linebacker Brian Urlacher (back) are probable.
Prediction: Bears win. (I wonder how many other people picked the Bears to win over the Packers like I did last week).
