The Minnesota Vikings will travel to Soldier Field to take on their NFC North rivals the Chicago Bears on November 14th. The most dysfunctional team in the NFL, the Minnesota Vikings, will need to pull themselves together to salvage any chance of post season hopes. Meanwhile, the Chicago Bears offensive line will be looking at a hungry Minnesota Vikings defensive line that is struggling to rack up sacks this season. Both teams are coming off of three point wins over lesser opponents and they will be evenly matched in this game.
Minnesota Vikings Defense vs Chicago Bears Offense
The defensive line of the Minnesota Vikings has been struggling to get to the quarterback this season and coming up against the worst offensive line in the NFL may be just what the doctor ordered. Do not be surprised if the Minnesota Vikings defense knocks out Jay Cutler in this game and totals over five to seven sacks. The secondary is the weak spot on the Minnesota Vikings but if the defensive line gets to Cutler the secondary won’t be tested.
Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears offense starts and ends with their difficulties on the front offensive line. Cutler will need to focus on quick dump off passes to his running back Matt Forte and tight end Greg Olsen. This will be a game where Cutler will not be able to catch his breath and mistakes will ensue. The Minnesota Vikings defense will have the edge over the Chicago Bears defense.
Chicago Bears Defense vs Minnesota Vikings Offense
The Chicago Bears defense has ranked at the top of the NFL all season and heading into this game they will be looking to establish their superiority over a Minnesota Vikings offense that has struggled under the leadership of Brett Favre. The middle of the field is where the Chicago Bears have created the most chaos with Brian Urlacher and Lance Briggs but Julius Peppers on the front line has been a huge help.
Brett Favre and his Minnesota Vikings have suffered through injuries coach versus player bickering and trades gone awry. The offense needs to make a statement in this game against of the best defenses in the NFL this weekend. Favre needs to get the ball into the hands of Adrian Peterson out of the back field and in the flat to keep the Chicago Bears defense honest in this game. Neither the Chicago Bears defense nor the Minnesota Vikings offense has an edge in this match up.
