NFL Game Pass
Sunday's Bears-Vikings game will be available on NFL Game Pass as soon as the game ends. The condensed game version will also be be available as soon as the game ends, while the coaches film will be posted Tuesday morning.
This is the first time since 2012 that the Bears are atop the division through Week 10. Last week, Chicago had its first divisional game since kicking off the season against the Packers. The Sunday night matchup with the Vikings will be Chicago's second of three straight divisional matchups in a span of 12 days.
The matchup will feature two quarterbacks who are both hitting their strides. Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky is coming off his first win over a divisional rival. The second-year quarterback tallied a career-high 355 passing yards against the Lions last Sunday and earned NFC offensive player of the week honors. Meanwhile, Vikings veteran quarterback Kirk Cousins returns after a bye week. Cousins ranks fourth in the conference in passing yards with 2,685 and has thrown for 17 touchdowns this season.
Flex on them
For the third time this season, the Bears will play in primetime. The NFL announced two weeks ago that it would flex the Bears-Vikings matchup, originally scheduled as a noon kickoff, to be a Sunday Night Football game. This past week the league announced that it will also flex the Bears-Rams Week 14 game to a primetime kickoff slot on Dec. 9. The Bears kicked off the season as part of a Sunday Night Football matchup with the Packers and played in primetime on Monday Night Football against the Seahawks in Week 2. The Bears are 16-23 all-time playing on Sunday Night Football. The last time Chicago faced Minnesota on a Sunday night, the Bears dominated, winning 39-10 at Soldier Field in 2011.
The Bears are 52-60-2 all-time against the Vikings. Minnesota edged the Bears, 20-17, at Soldier Field last year in Trubisky's first NFL start. The Vikings also won in Week 17 last year. Chicago is looking for it first win against the Vikings since it doubled them up, 20-10, in their first meeting of 2016.
