There are multiple reasons to believe the Minnesota Vikings will avoid their fifth loss in six games when they travel to take on the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

The Minnesota Vikings are stuck like a rock in a hard place. Do they look to the future, or do they try and turn this season around?

Only time will tell, but something tells me that Vikings head coach Kevin O'Connell isn't the type of guy to pack it in prematurely.

Both Minnesota and their long-time NFC North rival, the Chicago Bears, currently sit toward the bottom of the NFL standings and near the top of next year's draft order.

In their Week 6 game against the Bears on Sunday, the Vikings will be without star wideout Justin Jefferson for the first time in his career, so they will depend on K.J. Osborn and rookie Jordan Addison to shoulder the load.

Let's take a look at why Minnesota should be able to go out the road and defeat Chicago this weekend, starting with how their opponent has had trouble stopping opposing offenses this season.
