In a game where starters and backups got similar playing time, which Minnesota Vikings went under the radar with their performance against the Chicago Bears?

The Minnesota Vikings ended their season on a high note as they beat the Chicago Bears this past weekend by a final score of 29-13.

The game’s outcome was never really in question, as Minnesota clearly outmatched the tanking Bears. While most of the starters played the first half for the Vikings, the team’s backups got their feet wet in the second half, and they did a solid job in finishing the contest.

In a game with a mix of starters and backups playing, there are many options to choose from when it comes to unsung heroes, as it indeed was a total team effort that led to Minnesota winning in Chicago.

While Vikings wide receiver K.J. Osborn and running back Alexander Mattison were really the only players with notable stat lines in Week 18, others contributed with muted numbers due to the player mix. So who were the unsung heroes in Minnesota’s 2022 regular-season finale against the Bears?
