Vikings Use Meaningless Bears Game to Regroup for Playoffs
The Minnesota Vikings started the week in a sour mood. They lost 23-10 to rival Green Bay after a rough performance by their offense, allowing the Packers to celebrate as NFC North champions in their home stadium.
This week, the Vikings have the chance to get back on track when they wrap up the regular season against the Chicago Bears.
The question, though, is how much their starters will actually play. Coach Mike Zimmer and his staff must weigh the merits of taking a healthy team to the playoffs against the need to create some momentum going in.
The Vikings host the Chicago Bears at Noon this Sunday in U.S. Bank Stadium on FOX.
