5. Chicago Bears – Week 10 (MNF) and Week 15

2019 wasn’t good for the Minnesota Vikings when it came to facing off against their division opponent from “The Windy City” on both occasions. In fact, the Bears swept the purple and gold, with one of those being a loss to the teams’ backup quarterback and the other to a struggling Mitch Trubisky.

Minnesota needs to prove it can take care of Chicago at least once during the 2020 NFL season. However, that might be easier said than done when it comes to accomplishing the task depending on who is behind center for the Bears.

Chicago declined their fifth-year option on Trubisky, meaning the team might be ready to explore other options. If that is the case, a familiar foe to the Vikings could be the signal-caller for the Bears, Nick Foles.

Foles made the Vikings look silly in the NFC Championship just two seasons ago. Pairing him with an excellent receiver like Allen Robinson along with rookie tight end Cole Kmet and veteran Jimmy Graham could make a matchup even more challenging.
