The Bears and the Vikes know that this is the most important game of the season to date for both. Chicago can take a large step in the right direction towards getting into the playoffs just by winning this game, while the Vikes know that they absolutely have to have this one to really have any realistic chance of getting in. Minnesota is clearly the lesser of these two teams with WR Percy Harvin out of the fold, though we think that the meal ticket to winning this one is going to be the fact that LB Brian Urlacher is out of the lineup for the Bears. That really might open up some holes in the dead center of this defense, and that means that RB Adrian Peterson might be in for another big time day. The Metrodome should be “crazy drunk” as LB Chad Greenway likes to put it, and that should get the crowd really getting in QB Jay Cutler’s head. This isn’t a game that the Vikings are going to win; it’s a game that Cutler is going to find a way to lose.
Bears @ Vikings Pick: Minnesota Vikings +3
Chicago @ Minnesota Score Prediction: Minnesota 20 – Chicago 16
