In a game from NFL Week 17, we will see Chicago Bears at Minnesota Vikings.
The Chicago Bears have a very difficult task, in order to get a bye in the postseason. They will to beat the Vikings on the road and then rely on the 49ers to beat the Rams which is highly unlikely. That is why they are considering resting their starting line up. They can also meet the Vikings at home next week in the playoffs if certain events happen. Mitch Trubisky is playing very well all season long but he probably won’t be playing in this one and more importantly, the fierce defense will not start, either.
The Minnesota Vikings need a win, in order to get to the postseason. They are playing well at home all year but they have trouble winning games on the road. Adam Thielen and Kyle Rudolph are boasting the offense with their quality contribution. Cousins has already matched his season high of 29 touchdowns and he has gone for over 4000 passing yards for a fourth consecutive year. The Vikings have won 3 straight home games since losing 20-30 to the New Orleans Saints.
The Bears contained Cousins very well in their lone meeting earlier in the season. I expect Cousins to have taken notes from this one and finally deliver in a truly big game. I expect the Vikings to lead all day long in scoring and then win the game.
