It might not have been pretty but the Minnesota Vikings beat the Chicago Bears on the road in prime time to move to 7-7 on the season.

Week 15 of the 2021 NFL season saw the Minnesota Vikings hit the road to take on the Chicago Bears in a game that was played under the lights of Soldier Field in front of a national audience on Monday Night Football.

The game was an ugly affair. Both offenses looked terrible as the game plodded along. The Bears were without a large number of the players due to injury and COVID-19, leaving them vulnerable to a Minnesota squad coming off an emotional win over the Steelers in Week 14.

Of course, the final score shows the Vikings coming out on top of Chicago by a final score of 17-9 thanks to a Bears touchdown that was scored as time expired in the game. This made it another game that was decided by one possession for Minnesota.

Next week, the Minnesota Vikings will host the Los Angeles Rams. However, there is still quite a bit to unpack from this victory over the Chicago Bears. Let’s take a look at six of the biggest takeaways from this contest.
