ESPN comments:

What a difference a week makes. The Vikings' unbeaten season ended at Philadelphia, and QB Sam Bradford's three turnovers sort of reminded us of, well, the old Sam Bradford. Can the Vikings get back on track Monday night against the 1-6 Bears?

The biggest risers of the week are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, jumping eight spots from #28 to #20. The biggest fall of the week belongs to the Washington Redskins, plunging ten spots from #9 to #19.

The Vikings host the Bears Monday night at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

Skol!
