But the fact that Vikings are coming off a big win, had the bye to heal some of its players, and had an extra week for Zim and company to scheme ways to trip up Trubisky, adds up to a win for Minnesota. Current Vegas NFL football odds have Bears favored by 3 over Vikings (updated Minnesota Vikings vs Chicago Bears NFL Football Odds from Vegas).
There have been very few, if any, wide receivers who have been better than the Vikings' superstar this year. The Bears, who have finished at the bottom of the NFC North Division for the past four seasons (and whom the Vikings have beaten the past three meetings and six of the past seven) have turned their fortunes around this year and now lead the Vikings in the North by half-a-game. The Bears best chance to shut down the skill players of the Vikings is to dominate their offensive line. "They're good at stopping the run".
"Anyone that tells you running back don't matter, or that anyone can play the position, so you don't need to take one in the first round in the NFL Draft, is partaking in football analytical malpractice and hot-take-ry". "I think it allows them to play the style of defense that they would like to play".
With rookie James Daniels on one side and journeyman backups Brian Witzmann and Eric Kush on the other, Nagy's concern is certainly understandable. Chicago ranked ninth in points allowed and 10th in yards allowed last season.
Bears offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich is focused a bit on the Vikings' leading pass rusher, Danielle Hunter. "They move him around enough to make it a very hard proposition".
Monkey snatches 12-day-old baby from mother's arms, fatally bites him
Some local organisations were calling for monkeys to be sterilised and excluded from wildlife protection legislation, he said. It is high time that the monkeys should be removed from the protected species list under the Wild Life Act, 1972, he said.
"He gets the ball out with accuracy", Zimmer said. "But it's just effort".
The Bears' pressure is more about brute force with Khalil Mack, Akiem Hicks, Aaron Lynch and Roy Robertson-Harris capable of winning any matchup they face, while Leonard Floyd is more about speed and athleticism.
Like Long, the Vikings are without their best guard, Nick Easton, for the season.
Tom Compton is expected to play, but think about that. The other guard, Mike Remmers, is battling a bad back.
There is one factor here that solidly favors the Bears: Quarterback Mitch Trubisky is a much better scrambler and runner than Kirk Cousins.
2nd Test: Resilient Silva helps Sri Lanka gain lead of 46
The best performance with the willow, though, came from Roshen Silva, who was the last Sri Lankan wicket to fall in the innings. Silva was especially impressive in partnership with the tail, which had bailed Sri Lanka out of a precarious situation.
Minnesota left tackle Riley Reiff is better than Bears tackles Charles Leno and Bobby Massie, but their right tackle, Rashod Hill, isn't as good.
These two teams pride themselves on playing tough defense and think that's what fans are going to see come Sunday.
In an attempt to fix his struggles, Parkey chose to go to Soldier Field on Wednesday night to practice his kicks ahead of the team's big game on Sunday night against the Vikings (the Bears typically practice at their facility 35 miles away from the stadium).
With the way Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio moves Mack around the field, it's nearly impossible to account for him every play.
