The Chicago Bears and the Minnesota Vikings are playing today with no playoff implications at stake. Their fates are already sealed as the Vikes are assured of second in the NFC North with the Bears locked into third place. However a Chicago win would give them an identical 7-10 record with Minnesota, and depending on the young players Matt Nagy lets play, it could be nice for them to get a third straight victory to think on during the long offseason.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Bears vs Vikings week 18 matchup.
