An old black and blue divisional game which has more on the line than people think will take place in Chicago.The Minnesota Vikings (6-4) come to take on the Chicago Bears (7-3).This for the top spot in the North Division. The Vikings, coming off a bye, won their last game over divisional rival Detroit, 34-24.They are probably the most surprise team due to the fact they have the same team as last year when they under performed with a 3-13 record.  Adrian Peterson will probably share the Comeback Player of the Year award with Peyton Manning. He came into Week 12 with a leading 1,128 yards and seven touchdowns.Oh and by the way, Percy Harvin looks like he won't be able to go for a second straight game.The Chicago Bears on the other hand are coming off two straight disappointing losses including a 32-6 embarrassing game on Monday night. It looks like they will be getting their leader back in Jay Cutler. He practiced for the second straight day. There will be three keys to this game that will determine the outcome. And yes they are bold.Bold Prediction No. 1: The Bears will hold Christian Ponder to no more than 60 yards passing. Ponder has performed well as far as leading this team into a positive record. This prediction has more to due with the Bears bouncing back from that dismal performance in Candlestick Monday night.Bold Prediction No. 2: Adrian Peterson will break two 80-yard runs for touchdowns. Ever since his rookie sensational debut against the Bears when he torched them for 224 yards rushing they have held him pretty much in check  especially in the last three contest with 39, 51, 85 yards.  Bold Prediction 3: The Chicago offensive of line will allow no sacks. Yes I said it no sacks. Jay Cutler and the Bears will put a 40 burger up against the Vikings, beating them 41-14. Jay Cutler will dish out four touchdowns and 289 yards. Jared Allen will be held in check by the one and only J'Marcus "let 'em get the quarterback" Webb.Only time will tell if the prediction will come true to form.
