Following their disappointing 23-17 overtime loss to the Seattle Seahawks, the Chicago Bears look to bounce back this Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.
The Bears beat the Vikings 28-10 less than two weeks ago at Soldier Field but understand that the Metrodome in Minneapolis is a difficult place to play.
In order to stay notonly in the race for the NFC North, but also the Wild Card, the Bears will need to bounce back for a victory in Minnesota.
Here is my list of five players to watch this Sunday:
Week in and week out, the Bears offensive line has gotten its fair share of criticism, particularly left tackle J’Marcus Webb. Amidst the injuries and changes amongst the offensive line in recent weeks, Webb has gone out and performed fairly well in the last few weeks, excluding the team’s overall terrible performance in San Francisco.
Sunday, he will once again match up against Jared Allen, who has given him fits in the past, but Webb was able to keep him at bay in Week...

It would be hard to see Brian Urlacher in another uniform other than the Chicago Bears. However, the All-Pro linebacker isn’t sure if Chicago will resign him. If not, Urlacher says he would be sad, but not crushed.
“I do not think that’s going to happen,” Urlacher told FOX 32 News in Chicago. “But, if it does, I have had a really good and long career so I would be sad...
Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher is being fined for the second time in two weeks for horse collar tackles. Urlacher was penalized $15,750 just a week ago for his horse collar take down of Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson.
This time, Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune has reported that Urlacher is being fined $21,000 for taking down Seattle Seahawks RB Leon...
Last NFL season I began writing my “Jay Cutler Dominates” column. Of all my three years on MSF it’s been the column I’ve most enjoyed writing.
I like making people laugh, and one of my favorite means of doing that is through satire. Satire is a lot of fun because, if done right, you can get people to not even realize they’re being duped. I love that.
When I was writing...
The Chicago Bears' defense is finding it difficult to close out games and showing signs of some real wear and tear.
Playing without injured linebacker Brian Urlacher and with several other lineup changes, the Bears will have to find a way to turn it around Sunday against a Minnesota Vikings offense that can run opponents into the ground behind Adrian Peterson. A win would also...
Chicago Bears MLB Brian Urlacher was slapped with a $21,000 fine, his second in consecutive weeks by the NFL for a horse-collar tackle during the Bears 23-17 overtime loss to Seattle. The fine was levied after Urlacher tackled Seahawks running back Leon Washington. Last week, the league fined Urlacher $15,750 for a tackle on Minnesota’s Adrian Peterson. Urlacher plans to appeal...
Chicago's defense has caught the injury bug, the worst of which is Brian Urlacher, who could be done for the season. As a result, Jay Cutler says the offense must raise its level of play.
He's the latest in the long tradition of Chicago Bears middle linebackers. It started with Dick Butkus in the 60's and 70's. Mike Singletary continued it in the 80's and early 90's. And since the beginning of the new milennium, it's been Brian Urlacher. But with an injury to his hamstring, he could [...]
The Vikings’ respect of Bears middle linebacker Brian Urlacher runs deep, and they expect his absence will affect Chicago’s defense. Vikings players spoke in glowing terms of Urlacher, who won’t play Sunday.
We review what went wrong in last week's contest against the Seahawks. We also discuss Brian Urlacher's hamstring injury with Dr. Bob, The Sports Doctor, and break down Bears-Vikings with Tim Yotter of VikingUpdate.com.
When the Chicago Bears (8-4) and Minnesota Vikings (6-6) meet in the Metrodome on Sunday afternoon, it will be the second time in three weeks that these two teams have faced off. In the Thanksgiving weekend matchup between the two teams Chicago walked out of Soldier Field with a 28-10 victory. However, this will be a much different Bears team that faced the Vikings two weeks ago...

Jennings was hurt late in the Bears overtime loss to Seattle. In his place steps the veteran Hayden, who has played the nickel back role for much of the season. Hayden’s experienced in the [...]
