1. D.J. Moore has to lead the Chicago Bears to victory 

While the Minnesota Vikings' pass defense has been impressive, we can put a lot of that on Brian Flores as well. Individually, Byron Murphy, Mekhi Blackmon, and Akayleb Evans have all been beaten at times. 

Blackmon struggled just last week, giving up big catches to Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy. Evans has allowed big days to Joshua Palmer and Devonta Smith, while Murphy lost to Chris Olave and Jayden Reed and had issues with both Mike Williams and Keenan Allen.

So, D.J. Moore can make something happen against this group. In their first meeting, he had just 51 receiving yards. Still, the Bears had to deal with changing their offensive line on the fly, and they lost their quarterback as well.

When Justin Fields starts and finishes a game, D.J. Moore averages 105 yards per game, and he has gone over 95 yards in four of the six games this occurred. The Vikings may have been the team to hold down Moore that day, but they may not be so lucky to do it twice. If Moore can have his standard 100-yard game, the Bears could be in a good spot to pull off an upset.
