Minnesota Vikings Inactives


For only being a week four contest, this Chicago Bears vs. Minnesota Vikings match-up is a pretty big game. Both teams are 2-1 with their lone loss coming against the 3-1 Green Bay Packers, and both teams are also behind the 2-0-1 Detroit Lions in the NFL North standings. While falling to .500 won’t doom either team, getting a second loss in the division could be problematic when figuring out tiebreakers for the postseason.
