Bears Taking On Vikings In Regular Season Finale

Bears Taking On Vikings In Regular Season Finale

The Bears haven't played in or hosted a playoff game since January 23, 2011, when they lost 21-14 to the Packers in the NFC Championship.

Before their playoff push, the Bears are wrapping up their regular season against the Vikings in Minnesota Sunday.

Returning to the playoffs is fun on a Sunday, but by Monday, understanding that you'll be dealing with Khalil Mack could cause any good coach nauseous. The Bears looked like the team with something to play for while the Vikings lethargically went through the motions, never looking fit for a spot in the playoffs.

The defending Super Bowl champion Eagles will be a tough assignment next week. There's no magic formula. With the game in hand, attention turned to the Bears-Vikings.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said Ankara will intervene in the coming months against ISIS and the YPG. Earlier, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu had informed about a scheduled visit to Moscow in late December.

This wasn't about the Bears worrying about next week's opponent at Soldier Field. "I told them, 'You set out to get yourself into the tournament.' They've done that and we just got another opportunity next week". There were several thousand empty seats and Redskins fans could only cheer for the Vikings to spite Eagles fans. It had its fifth 100-yard rushing game of the season last week against Detroit, with no turnovers. Philadelphia has won two straight games since Nick Foles has taken over for the injured Carson Wentz at quarterback. At least not as much as the Vikings, who likely need to win in order to get into the playoffs, where they could very well face the Bears again in the Wild Card round of the postseason next weekend. "I really don't. I didn't hear that".

Credit Bears coach Matt Nagy for setting the proper tone. He's tied for the NFL lead with six forced fumbles for the Bears, who have 36 takeaways for the most in the league. The defense made life painful for Kirk Cousins and embarrassed Minnesota's offensive line for a total of four sacks. Zimmer said he didn't want the season to be lost.

"Our team feeds off the crowd and what they bring", Cousins said.

"I thought they kind of, what's the best way to say this. they were dominating us for a long time", Zimmer said of the first game.
