Chicago at Minnesota Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET, at Mall of America Field, Minneapolis, Minn. - TV: FOX; DirecTV: 707 *TV announcers: Kenny Albert, Daryl Johnston, Tony Siragusa *Keys to the game: Chicago counts heavily on Brandon Marshall to keep its passing game relevant and the Vikings know from their first-hand trial and error two weeks ago that he's not easily double-teamed. Jay Cutler trusts him to provide a soft landing for risky throws. The Vikings are a better pass-rushing team in their home dome, but need a quick start to truly test Cutler's reconfigured line. RB Adrian Peterson continues machine-like production for the Vikings even without the offense threatening regularly with the passing game in Percy Harvin's extended absence. Harvin (ankle) has been inactive for three consecutive games, but Peterson more than picked up the slack with at least 120 rushing yards in five of his past six games. The Bears were slow to react to the Seahawks' outside runs ...

Bears LB Brian Urlacher strained his hamstring in Sunday’s loss to the Seahawks and the injury could spell the end of the linebacker’s regular season, according to The Chicago Tribune.
The injury was non-contact as Urlacher mentioned he felt a “pop” in the muscle during the game. Chicago needs to prepare to play without their star veteran “for a while”, per a team source...

Jay Cutler continues to play at a high level, but the Chicago Bears' offense continues it's struggle to put points up on the board. The Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall show combined for another 10 receptions for 167 yards but the Bears only scored 17 points.
This seems to be the weekly theme that has now developed, the Bears can rack up yards and receptions between...
The Minnesota Vikings' playoff chances are slipping away with each missed opportunity, such as Sunday's 24-13 loss at the Green Bay Packers.
Green Bay and the Chicago Bears (8-4) are tied atop of the NFC North, with the Packers owning a tiebreaker advantage against Chicago. Minnesota (6-6) is a game out of the playoffs after the Seattle Seahawks (7-5) beat the Bears Sunday...
Nothing is going stop Chicago Bears wide receiver Earl Bennett for trying to get a touchdown. Against the Minnesota Vikings Sunday, the 25-year-old was able to get a pass from Jay Cutler in the red zone, running and flipping his way into the end zone to put the Bears up seven.
Crazy flip, crazy touchdown.

GREEN BAY, Wis. Adrian Peterson continues to defy logic. Rushing for 210 yards, including a career-best 82-yard touchdown run, the ultra-talented running back that's less than a year removed from blowing out his knee was the only reason Minnesota was even in Sunday's game.
Yet somehow, as ridiculous as it sounds, Peterson tried to...

Bears have signed Dom DeCicco to a two-year contract, adding depth
Aaron Rodgers was aided by a good running game while the Vikings had nothing but Adrian Peterson. With the Packers pitching a second-half shutout, they beat the Vikings 23-14 and stayed right in the heart of the playoff race.
