The Minnesota Vikings hit the road in Week 6 and defeated the Chicago Bears. There was quite a bit to learn from the game.

Entering Week 6 of the 2023 NFL season, the Minnesota Vikings were in a pretty bad situation. They had only won one of their first five games and were without star wide receiver Justin Jefferson, who suffered an injury in Week 5 and was placed on IR.

With their playoff hopes disappearing, getting a win wasn't essential yet but losing to Chicago would put Minnesota in the basement of the NFC North and make any hopes of salvaging the season a massive challenge.

Thankfully, the Vikings were able to fight hard enough to get the division win on the road by a score of 19-13. Now they will face the massive challenge of taking on the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football in Week 7.

Before looking too far head, let's look at six of the biggest takeaways from the Minnesota Vikings during their Week 6 win against the Chicago Bears and what they could mean for the team over the course of the remainder of the season.
