THE LOWDOWN

CHICAGO BEARS

Head Coach: Matt Nagy

W/L: 6-3

  • Chicago continued their charge towards the post-season with another impressive win, this time against Detroit.

  • The Bears defense forced three turnovers which allowed their offense to give them a commanding lead with them posting 4 TDs in the first half alone in the 34-22 victory.

  • With three straight wins under their belt, the Bears find themselves top of the NFC North heading into this divisional match-up.

MINNESOTA VIKINGS

Head Coach: Mike Zimmer

W/L: 5-3-1

  • Minnesota head to Chicago for an important divisional match-up on the back of their bye week after a win over Detroit.

  • Having defeated the Lions 24-9, the Vikings earned their fourth win from their last five matches as they continued to put pressure on the Bears at the top of NFC North.

  • QB Kirk Cousins has completed more passes than anyone else in the NFL this year with 259, an average of 28.8 per game but the Vikings may now look to run the ball more with RB Dalvin Cook healthy again.

THE PREDICTION

Chicago host divisional rivals Minnesota with the winner ending Week 11 top of the NFC North. Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky posted another impressive stats line in his last outing, throwing 3 TDs as well as rushing for one himself. All eyes will be on him in this contest to see if he can cope with the pressure the Vikings will send his way but he can guide his team to a crucial victory.
