The Chicago Bears will get the Monday night spotlight against the Minnesota Vikings later this evening, and there’s sure to be plenty of talking points for the ESPN crew.

When these two teams met back in week six, Chicago quarterback Justin Fields dislocated his thumb after landing awkwardly following a sack. Last week was his first action since then, and he looked good in throwing for 169 yards, completing 69.6% of his passes, with one touchdown and a passer rating of 105.2, while also rushing for 104 yards. The blitz-happy Vikings will surely come after him, so he and the Bears need to be ready this time.

Here’s everything you need to know for the Bears vs. Vikings game!

GAME INFO

Kickoff is scheduled for 7:15 p.m. (CT) at U.S. Bank Stadium in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota, and there will be no weather concerns since it is a domed stadium.
