This is a game between two teams heading for different destinations this season.
The Vikings are 5-1, reaching for the playoffs and their opponents are 1-6, heading to the first positions in the NFL Draft. Minnesota are driven by their defense which is allowing one of the lowest amount of points in the NFL. Their offense has to deal without their star quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and all-star running back Adrian Peterson but Sam Bradford is still capable of putting enough points to get the Win.
The Bears are one of the worst teams in the NFL and now their without their starting quarterback Brian Hoyer. This means Jay Cutler will have to face the Vikings’ defense which may lead to a couple of interceptions and probably a pick-6. Cutler will try to get Alshon Jeffrey involved early in the game but this may not happen because of the Vikings’ secondary. That’s why I predict the Vikings to win this one pretty easily as I can’t see the Bears showing much fight in this one and they will improve to 1-7.
