Who were the Minnesota Vikings MVPs on offense and defense in Week 15?

Coming into Week 15, the Minnesota Vikings were still in a pretty good position when it came to getting a playoff spot. While they didn’t control their own destiny, they could improve their chances greatly by beating the Chicago Bears at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Sadly, the purple and gold couldn’t get the job done. They lost to Mitchell Trubisky and a strong Chicago run game by a final score of 33-27. Now, the Vikings sit with a 6-8 record, needing a ton of help if they want to capture that seventh seed in the NFC playoff bracket.

Despite the loss, there were some Minnesota players who played exceptionally well against the Bears on Sunday, making the game entertaining and disappointing at the same time.

Let’s take a look at some of the best Vikings players on offense and defense from their loss to Chicago in Week 15 starting with some of the standout performers on the offensive side of the ball.
