The Vikings come in to Soldier Field for their second NFC North road game. If the Bears can pull off the win, they’ll put the team that took the last NFC playoff spot in an 0-2 hole.

While the Vikings are still reeling from their divisional loss to the Lions, they are in desperation mode when they visit Soldier field this Sunday. AP has put the team on his shoulders before and he is anxiously awaiting an “Urlacherless” opportunity to gain some healthy yards-he’s done it before (see 2007, 224 yards) Vikes do not want to fall behind in the toughest division in the league.

I think the defense will force a couple of Ponder turnovers and an AP fumble to set the Berars up in nice field position for a couple of easy scores. On offense the Bears will stay fairly cautious, keep Jared Allen off Cutler, and do just enough to give the Bears a comfortable victory.

4th Phase (1-0)
Bears offense will continue to make strides and the offensive line will keep Jay Cutler clean. Adrian Peterson will break off a couple nice runs but it won’t be enough because Christian Ponder won’t be able to get the job done because he sucks and our defense is good.

I think that this game would be an easy win for the Bears, except for the fact that the Vikings possess one of the most dynamic running backs that the NFL has ever seen. The Viking are going to play the Bears harder than they have ever played; this game is a must win, or their chances to make the playoffs severely diminish. In the end the Bears are a more complete team and will take this game at home

The Vikings seem to be a one dimensional football team, but their one dimension is probably the biggest dimension in football, Adrian Peterson. However, the Bears should have no problem shutting down Christian Ponder, who I find to be just plain bad.
Peterson will get his, but the D forces Ponder into three turnovers, providing excellent field position for Cutler and the offense all day. Bears win going away!!!
Bears 30 – Vikings 17

The offense explodes and racks up the score in the first half. Adrian Peterson manages to score two touchdowns in the second half, but it is already too late. The Bears march away with their second straight victory in the Marc Trestman era. Did I mention Ditka picked the Bears to win the Super Bowl this year? DA BEARS!
