What did we learn about the Minnesota Vikings from their disappointing loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday night?

For a team that had two weeks to prepare for their Week 11 matchup with the Chicago Bears, the Minnesota Vikings looked very lost on Sunday night. The Vikings struggled on both sides of the ball during the first half and a surge of points in the second half was just too little too late.

Minnesota ended up losing to the Bears by a final score of 25-20 this week and the defeat has the Vikings now sitting with a record of 5-4-1. A record still good enough for the No. 6 seed in the NFC playoffs currently, but not one Minnesota should be happy with.

With six games remaining on their 2018 schedule, including road matchups against the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks, Minnesota’s path to get to the postseason this year just got even more difficult with their loss to Chicago on Sunday.

With the way the NFC is currently looking, it’s even possible that the Vikings could end up missing out on the playoffs this season. For a team that had Super Bowl aspirations heading into the year, missing the postseason would be incredibly disappointing for Minnesota.

As for their most recent defeat, there is plenty that can be taken away from the Vikings’ performance on Sunday night against the Bears. What are the top three takeaways from Minnesota’s Week 11 loss to Chicago?
