The Vikings can do some fun things in their season finale, including having Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen possibly break the 1,000 yard receiving mark, Sam Bradford pass 4,000 passing yards, or adding to Danielle Hunter’s impressive 12 sack mark.
Considering the problems with the defense “going rogue” last week, putting on a display of unity against the Bears could go a long way in silencing the reports as well as speculation of problems with personnel or the locker room.
Outside of the game action, there is something to be said for winning for the fans who have stuck with the team despite the frustrating end of the 2017 season. These fans will keep cheering on Minnesota, even though there is no hope of a postseason berth.
The Minnesota Vikings will hope to finish the season on a high note during week 17. If they can defeat the Chicago Bears in the noon central time game on Sunday, January 1, 2016, it could go a long way toward getting this team back on the winning track.
