Minnesota Vikings (6-4) vs. Chicago Bears (7-3)
Where: Soldier Field
When: Sunday, November 24, 12:oo PM CT
The Vikings are coming off their bye week. The Bears are trying to rebound after a humiliating defeat at the hands of San Francisco. Minnesota’s main concern is the passing game, with Percy Harvin once again on the shelf. Jarius Wright emerged as a weapon vs. Detroit and figures to be heavily featured with Harvin out. Adrian Peterson of course will carry the bulk of the load for Minnesota.
For the Bears it’s all about the offensive line and quarterback. Jay Cutler will return after missing a week with a concussion. This is great news for them as Jason Campbell was totally ineffective in relief. The offensive line will be reshuffled with Gabe Carimi and Chilo Rachal out as starters. The defense was somewhat embarrassed by Colin Kaepernick and the Niners and will look to get its mojo back.
Vikings: OUT (unofficial): Percy Harvin (ankle); QUESTIONABLE: Charlie Johnson (toe), Letroy Guion (foot); PROBABLE: Stephen Burton (ankle), Adrian Peterson (ankle), Chris Kluwe (knee), Antoine Winfield (knee), Jared Allen (shoulder), Michael Jenkins (foot)
