The Chicago Bears return from their bye week to take on NFC North division rival Minnesota.
Head coach John Fox historically has been good out of the bye with a record of 10-3 and if the Bears want to salvage the season, that record will have to improve. The Vikings on the other hand are looking for their third straight win and back-to-back wins over the NFC North. Minnesota’s defense has been good this season and their offense has had some key contributions despite a slow start from Adrian Peterson.
