Chicago Bears vs Minnesota Vikings 12/29/2019
The season seemed bright for Chicago Bears this NFL season but their offensive was simply erratic. Chicago is coming off a loss right in their own turf. The Bears have been struggling on the offensive end, failing to compliment their good defense. Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky has been a disappointment for Chicago, failing to anchor them on the offensive end. Chicago needs him to come up with a better showing against the Vikings. Failure to do so will likely result in another blowout loss.
Players to watch:
M. Trubisky QB (14 GP 300 CMP 479 ATT 62.6 CMP% 2931 YDS 6.1 AVG 223.1 YDS/G 53 LNG 17 TD 10 INT 34 SACK 206 SYL 41.5 QBR 82.9 RTG), D. Montgomery RB (15 GP 219 ATT 776 YDS 3.5 AVG 55 LNG 3 BIG 5 TDS 51.7 YDS/G 2 FUM 2 LST 43 FD), T. Cohen RB (15 GP 60 ATT 193 YDS 3.2 AVG 13 LNG 0 BIG 0 TDS 12.9 YDS/G 0 FUM 0 LST 14 FD).
The Vikings are favorites but their performance this season leaves a lot to be desired. Minnesota is coming off a loss to the Green Bay Packers and there are questions on the table. Despite the loss, they are ensured of a wild card berth. They are currently locked at the sixth spot in the NFC but need to manage their battered players. QB Kirk Cousins is expected to lead the Vikings on offense anew. However, he has not thrown much with Minnesota’s running game working. Their defense is expected to make a difference anew. So far, the Vikings have held teams under 16 points per game.
Players to watch:
K. Cousins QB (15 GP 307 CMP 444 ATT 69.1 CMP% 3603 YDS 8.1 AVG 244.4 YDS/G 66 LNG 26 TD 6 INT 28 SACK 206 SYL 59.8 QBR 107.4 RTG), D.
