How to Watch the Bears vs Vikings on December 20, 2020

Sunday another chapter unfolds in one of the longest rivalries in NFL history when the Chicago Bears (6-7) take on the Minnesota Vikings(6-7). For this Week 15 matchup, the Bears will travel to U.S. Bank Stadium in Minnesota in a game that will all but seal the fate of the losing team’s playoff hopes. 

Two of the NFL’s most storied franchises have played every year since 1961 — 119 games, including a postseason game — with the Vikings leading the series 61-56-2. The Vikings edged out a 19-13 victory in their most recent matchup on November 16, 2020.

Our prediction: Bad News Bears get their revenge as underdogs in a 20-17 victory. 

Two different journeys led to the same path as a pair of 6-7 NFC North teams face off in a pivotal matchup with huge playoff implications. The Bears breezed through the competition as the Windy City’s own started the season off 5-1. Whereas things were looking like Ragnarok for the Vikings as they started the season off on an unflattering note with a 1-5 record. 

Since their Week 7 bye, the Vikings have been on a hot streak with 4 wins and 2 losses. Their latest loss was a deafening 26-14  defeat thanks to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Vikings’ kicker Dan Bailey missed four kicks (3 field goals and an extra point) that would’ve given the team a win if things turned out differently. Based on their recent play, the Tampa Bay game seems like an outlier as Bailey is known to be one of the better kickers in the league.

Recently, the Bears have not played close to the caliber that they showed earlier in the season. After their 5-1 start, the team has only won a single game since week 7. This past Sunday, they defeated the Texans 36-7. Coincidentally, the Texans were the first team the Vikings defeated this season. Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky is coming off his best game as a starter this season as he threw for 3 touchdowns and 0 interceptions.

The Vikings are the favorite because recent games clearly show that they’re the hotter team, but this has all the makings of a trap game. These Bears and their 9th-ranked defense will be hungry, and Minnesota’s goldilocks is their 14th-ranked offense. Quarterback play will be the difference-maker in this game as Trubisky and Kirk Cousins have huge problems when it comes to consistency. Chicago will keep their playoff hopes alive as they squeak out a 3-point victory.
