Vikings: 3 Keys to Beating the Bears

Vikings offensive line in flux heading into final week of season

The Bears simply can not keep Vikings defenders at bay, culminating in a safety of Mitchell Trubisky, who tried getting rid of the ball in the face of a relentless pass rush.

The Vikings were up 3-2 in Chicago when they turned to Keenum just before halftime, and it was only when the offense began to coalesce around the quarterback that Minnesota avoided what could have been a costly loss.

Minnesota's last bye in the first round came in the 2010 playoffs.

"There are a few examples of that - like the Giants previous year", Newman said, referencing when several NY receivers were spotted partying in Miami the Monday before they lost to the Green Bay Packers in a Sunday wild-card game.

Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray uses leverage to power through Bears defense for second touchdown of the game.

"I've been on the bad end of it", Newman said of first-round byes. The unit led the National Football League in least points allowed and has the ability to shut down any offense, which should keep the Vikings in any game.

The 13 wins by the Vikings is the second-most in team history for the regular season, trailing just the 15-1 mark in 1998. "This place is crazy-hard for people to play".

Apple CEO Tim Cook's earnings up 74% to $102m
Cook's total compensation was $12.8 million in 2017, up almost 50% from the previous year, according to the filing . He's still actually the lowest paid among his executive team, who all make around $ 24 million a year.

"They're awesome", Keenum said of the defense.

The Bears finished the season with a 5-11 record, a two-game improvement over their 2016 campaign.

Multiple outlets reported general manager Ryan Pace was expected to be retained - he was hired shortly after Fox arrived - and lead the search for a new coach. Entering Sunday's finale, the Bears are just 14-33 in the John Fox Era.

"Defensively we have a lot of good players", Zimmer said.

Receiver Adam Thielen can increase his 2018 salary escalator by another $250,000 with five catches to reach 90 for the season.

Joe Berger, who switched from right guard to center with Pat Elflein shelved for a shoulder injury for the second time in four weeks, was the only original starter on the Vikings offensive line to play in all 16 games. Jeremiah Sirles started at left guard for Nick Easton, who will miss the playoffs because of a broken ankle. Chicago was without regular offensive linemen Bobby Massie and Josh Sitton.
