Zimmer doesn’t care about any sort of Chicago curse
It doesn’t seem to matter how good or bad the Bears are playing when the Vikings come to town. Getting a win in Chicago has always been a difficult task for Minnesota.
Prior to Mike Zimmer becoming the team’s head coach in 2014, the Vikings came away with just one victory on the road against the Bears from 2001 to 2013. No one can really figure out why, but playing in Chicago has just been Minnesota’s kryptonite for the majority of the 21st century.
However, the Vikings have been able to get road wins against the Bears in two of the last four seasons. So Zimmer has reasons to be optimistic about his team leaving Soldier Field with a victory on Sunday.
When he was asked earlier this week about why he thinks it’s been so difficult to win in Chicago, the Vikings head coach just said, “that’s what everybody told me when I got here, then we won some games.”
So despite Minnesota’s lack of success on the road against the Bears for the past two decades, Zimmer could honestly care less. He knows what the Vikings are capable of this season and it includes being able to get a tough win in Chicago on Sunday.
