Monday night is finally here and we’re ready to wrap up the 12th week of the NFL regular season with an NFC North matchup in Minnesota. Both of these teams are fringe teams that are the outside looking in when it comes to the playoff race down the final stretch of the season. Chicago is only a loss or two away from being officially eliminated from the postseason and Minnesota still has a sliver of hope as long as they catch fire, heading down the final stretch of the year. It has been a rough season for both of these teams as they have both dealt with injuries to their starting quarterbacks and star players and both of them will be looking to grind out a hard fought divisional victory here on Monday night to wrap up the 12th week of the season and the month of November on a positive note.
It has been a rather rough season for the Chicago Bears, but they looked like potential contenders early on in the year before quarterback Justin Fields broke his wrist and missed several weeks. Even trading for DJ Moore in the off-season and giving up the number one overall was not enough to help them become a competitive football team this season and they now find themselves without a first round draft selection in next year’s NFL Draft to improve the roster. At this point in the year Chicago is all but officially eliminated from the postseason race. However, they do have an opportunity to play spoiler for the Minnesota Vikings if they can pull off the victory here on Monday night on the road in Minnesota at US Bank Stadium.
They will be looking to do exactly that with a quality performance here on Monday night against their NFC North division rivals as they look for their fourth victory of the regular season. Quarterback, Justin Fields is back in the lineup after missing several games throughout the middle of the regular season, and he provides them with their best opportunity to pick up a victory in this game against Minnesota on Monday night as well. He will be looking to clean, efficient game of football here on Monday night and leave the Chicago Bears to a huge momentum boosting victory down the final stretch of the regular season. The Chicago team has been up-and-down all season long but they will be looking to get DJ Moore involved in this game as they look to pick up a victory and severely hamper the Vikings chances of making the postseason.

The Minnesota Vikings have been a roller coaster all season long as well, and they will be looking to grab a crucial victory here on Monday night at home against the Chicago Bears. They lost star quarterback Kirk Cousins several weeks ago, a season ending injury and star wide receiver Justin Jefferson has not played since either. Both of those guys are huge pieces to be missing for the Minnesota Vikings as they look to make a late season playoff push heading into this game in week 12 against the Chicago Bears on Monday night. Quarterback Josh Dobbs has stepped up and led this team to a quality stretch of play throughout the last three weeks since his arrival with the trade deadline, and he will be looking to pull a rabbit out of the hat for the fourth consecutive game in a row here on Monday night in Chicago.
Another quality performance for Josh Dobbs in this game on Monday night would firmly put the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC wildcard race heading into the final six weeks of the regular season. They come into this game with six victories through their first 11 games of the year and they will be looking for their seventh victory of the season here at home on Monday night where they’ve been very tough to beat over the last several seasons. They will need key players to step up and make plays like rookie wide receiver Jordan Addison and they will need the defense to step up and stop the offense which has not been difficult for many teams around the league this season.
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- Chicago is 1-5 on the road this season
- Minnesota is 2-1 as a favorite this season
- Chicago is 2-7 as an underdog this season
I looked for this to be a close competitive contest throughout the early part of the game here on Monday night in Minnesota. But in the end I do look for the Minnesota Vikings to pull away and pick up a victory over the Chicago Bears here in this one to wrap up the 12th week of the regular season and keep their playoff hopes alive. Not only do I look for the Minnesota Vikings to pick up the victory in this game over the Chicago Bears in this NFC North divisional matchup but I look for the Minnesota Vikings to cover the spread in the process at home.As always, get our VIP Pick Free Tonight by Clicking Here!
