The Minnesota Vikings defense has got their swagger back.

"Over the weekend, we'll also be honoring several MI families who have lost loved ones while serving our country in a show of appreciation for their ultimate sacrifice", Patricia said.

It has been a long time since the Bears (6-3) have been in a spot like this.

Nagy altered the Bears' offense and helped second-year quarterback Mitchell Trubisky take a big step.

They're in sole possession of the division lead for the first time since 2013. This is the first of two matchups with the Bears over the final seven games.

STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES — Vikings have won four of five since loss at Rams on September 27.

Points could be hard to come by for both teams.

"The more playing time you get as a rookie, the better", Conklin said. Vikings defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson said. "We're now in a position to be able to play at home in front of our great fans, to have some fun in a game that means something". "They might not be fun for the offense, but they're still fun for us".

Bears coach Matt Nagy compared the two defenses Thursday. But the Vikings have faced plenty of that in previous games against the Rams and Eagles.

So much so, the pop singer joked about getting the whole awkward tweet of Mark Hamill explaining himself tattooed on her forehead. Before she released her new single Thank U, Next , she let two former flames - Big Sean and Ricky Alvarez - hear it in advance.

"He's got great counter moves, he's got speed, he's got power", Helfrich said. "It's a little bit of that style". "But they've got their core group of plays they are going to run".

Of course, whatever Nagy has shown over the first nine games is just a snapshot of what's in that complex playbook.

"They've got really good players on the inside that penetrate", he added about the Vikings' pressure. K Cody Parkey is coming off rough game, hitting uprights while missing two extra points and two field goals. "For me, this comes down to one thing: Whichever defense shows up". "There's been times he's had some free runners and it looks like they're telling him, 'Hey, you have to get the ball out.' He gets the ball out with accuracy".

The victor of this game will be on top of the division with only six games remaining in the 2018 season. Let's take a look at some opinions from the most prominent sites on the internet! Thielen already has 947 yards on 78 receptions, and until Minnesota's Week 9 win over the Detroit Lions had eight consecutive games with at least 100 receivers yards (he's also caught a touchdown in six consecutive games). Trubisky finished with a passer rating of 148.6. Adrian Peterson says he is feeling "refreshed", but he'll run into a J.J. Watt-led defense that allows less than 93 yards per game on the ground. He wasn't great, either, in the finale at Minnesota, going 20 of 36 for 178 yards. Sunday night represents a far higher level of competition against a 5-3-1 Minnesota team that in recent weeks has been playing its best football of the season.

"I think just good feet, good eyes and I just played with conviction", Trubisky said. They also have a Monday night game at Seattle on December 10.

Dickerson covers the Chicago Bears for ESPN's NFL Nation. Walter Payton's children attended the same grade school as Cousins.

"We know how talented of a football player he is". Though Cousins was born more than two years after the Bears won Super Bowl 20, he was well aware of the legend of that star-studded team. "Don't try to overdo things and make too many plays".

OPENING LINE - Bears by 2½.
