The North Dakota pipeline controversy was one of the hottest topics of 2016, and will likely continue to be an issue in 2017.
On Sunday, for some reason, a guy in a Brett Favre Minnesota Vikings jersey decided to hang from a large banner connected to the rafters at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Don't see this every day at a Vikings game. Just another odd occurrence in the 2016 season. pic.twitter.com/5sc7TfsYc3— Judd Zulgad (@1500ESPNJudd) January 1, 2017

This is by far the most interesting event occurring at U.S. Bank Stadium today, as the Bears are already getting blown out 17-0 in the 2nd quarter.
Matt Barkley has thrown another interception, Jeremy Langford had a lost fuble, and the Bears look like a team playing their reserves once again (which they are).
The only positive note so far has been rookie Jordan Howard making Bears history, setting the all-time rookie rushing record (previously held by Matt Forte).
