5. The Vikings will narrowly enter the bye with a win

Many thought the Vikings would smash the Bears in their previous meeting on October 15, but Chicago made it closer than it needed to be in Minnesota’s 19-13 win.

While the Vikings are a better team than they were in the previous meeting, this could have a similar feel. The Vikings could be without Justin Jefferson as he continues to recover from his hamstring injury, and the Bears are still an inconsistent team that is more concerned with draft order than the product on the field.

Chicago is capable of pulling off the upset, but they’ve also proven that they can snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. That being said, the Vikings will likely find a way to pull this one out – even if it’s by its traditional one-score margin.

Prediction: Vikings win 21-17
