The Chicago Bears and the Minnesota Vikings met up later today, with the winner climbing to 2-4 and the loser remaining in the NFC North cellar at 1-5. The Lions are still atop the division at 4-1, and they have a late afternoon tilt against the Bucs in Tampa, while the 2-3 Packers are on their bye.
This will be a big game for the Bears as they try to keep the momentum going for the offense and catapult themselves into relevancy in the NFC.
Here’s everything you need to know to prepare for the Bears vs. Vikings game!
Kickoff is scheduled for noon (CT) at Soldier Field today (October 15), in Chicago Illinois, and the weather is expected to be rainy in the morning which tapers off in the afternoon with a high around 54F and winds around 15 to 25 mph.
