The Minnesota Vikings got a big win over the Chicago Bears on Monday night. Who were the most disappointing Vikings players from that victory?

It wasn’t pretty, but the Minnesota Vikings got back to .500 with a win over the Chicago Bears on Monday. The game was mostly a defensive struggle. The Vikings had trouble moving the ball on a depleted Bears’ secondary, but that had much to do with the offensive line’s inability to handle the interior pass rush of Chicago.

Minnesota’s defense stiffened when it had to. The Bears were able to move the ball down the field with relative ease, but then in the red zone, the Vikings’ defense really stepped up. They forced some turnovers and even blocked a field goal attempt which is something fans of the Purple aren’t used to seeing.

Chicago basically handed this victory to Minnesota with their boneheaded penalties and turnovers. Yet the Vikings didn’t want to receive this gift and couldn’t cash in on all the opportunities they were given, ultimately hanging on for an eight-point victory.

Some disappointing performances from key players were the reason this game was much closer than it had to be. Here is the list of the guilty members of the Vikings in the win over the Bears.
