The Chicago Bears have shown they have a bright future with new quarterback Mitch Trubisky as they easily took care of the Cleveland Browns. Then again, everybody has had success agains the Browns..
Anyway, the Bears will enter Minnesota to take on the Vikings as they hope to finish of the year in grand fashion with maybe an upset win? Maybe?
Turnovers were the key for the Chicago Bears defense as they were able to get three turnovers from Cleveland Browns quarterback Kizer. With a short field position, the Bears were able to use the ground and pound method to secure their 5th win of the season. Running back Jordan Howard had a successful day scoring.
Howard would finish the day with two touchdowns on 22 carries for 44 yards. Now it was not an excellent day for Howard as he only averaged two yards per carry in the game, but he found the endzone twice which is huge for him as he has not found it in ages.
It was a lot of big plays by quarterback Mitch for the Bears to open up the scoring as he would find open 3rd down screens a success against the Browns. It is going to be a tough challenge for the Bears, as Howard will struggle Sunday.
The Minnesota Vikings have won the past four of five games as they are riding into the playoffs with the number two seed right now. Minnesota has had recent success with new quarterback Case Keenum as he has lead them to the glory land of January football.
The past two games have really showcased what this Vikings team can do, as they shutout the Green Bay Packers and blew out the Cincinnati Bengals. In their recent win against the Packets, the Vikings beat the Packers 16-0 as the defense was huge.
Keenum had an off day but the defense really stepped up for the Vikings. The defense were able to pick off Hundley twice and kept him out of the endzone all game. Even if the offense has a slow start, the defense will easily pick up the team.
Minnesota is looking great right now, as it does not matter what the line is as the Vikings are going to most likely cover it.
