Top Storyline
Despite the Bears already locking up a playoff spot, both teams still have something on the line in this game. Chicago could clinch the No. 2 seed in the NFC playoff rankings and a first-round bye with a win and a Rams loss. The Vikings have more at stake on Sunday. They need a win or an Eagles loss to lock up a playoff spot and could even get the fifth seed in the NFC with a win and a Seahawks loss.

A Long time coming
Sunday could mark the return for offensive lineman Kyle Long. Bears coach Matt Nagy said he was “cautiously optimistic” that Long could play against the Vikings. The sixth-year lineman hasn’t played since Week 8 when he suffered a right foot injury in the Bears’ win over the Jets. This is the first week that the Bears can return Long to their active roster. Long practiced last Friday for the first time since the injury and has continued to practice with the team this week.

History Lesson
The Bears are 53-60-2 all-time against the Vikings. The two teams have split their last two matchups. Chicago won earlier this year, 25-20, when it hosted Minnesota in Week 11. The Vikings won the last contest in Minnesota, which also took place in the final week of the regular season last year.
