Vikings beat Chicago to clinch first-round bye

Posted January 01, 2018

In what could have been the final game for coach John Fox, who's 14-34 in three seasons, the Bears didn't cross midfield until the fourth quarter and totaled only 30 yards rushing.

Minnesota Vikings defensive end Brian Robison sacks Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky in the third quarter. He owns a 133-122 record with Chicago, Denver and the Carolina Panthers. "So I'm excited. I think this place is going to be rocking", Keenum said. "If we can go out and get a win, it guarantees us that we get next week off".

ABOUT THE VIKINGS (12-3): Jerick McKinnon totaled his second-best career total in scrimmage yards with 146 in the previous encounter with Chicago, highlighted by a 55-yard touchdown run.

"Right now it's all about team ball", Joseph said. "Preparation. how to carry yourself as a pro and just getting comfortable within this offense is probably the main thing (I've done)".

The Bears simply can not keep Vikings defenders at bay, culminating in a safety of Mitchell Trubisky, who tried getting rid of the ball in the face of a relentless pass rush.

"It's a box that we checked", Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen said. "I don't feel like we'd get another coach that would be better".

The Minnesota Vikings took care of business on Sunday and one victory pretty much turned into two. "Just letting the game slow down and just playing, instead of thinking".

The Vikings have gone 7-1 at home this season and have held foes to 12.6 points a game at U.S. Bank. Randy Moss and Cris Carter are the only ones ahead on either list.

Joe Berger, who switched from right guard to center with Pat Elflein shelved for a shoulder injury for the second time in four weeks, was the only original starter on the Vikings offensive line to play in all 16 games. Chicago was without regular offensive linemen Bobby Massie and Josh Sitton.

Vikings: FB C.J. Ham hurt his neck and was ruled out early in the third quarter.

Despite the Sunday's win, there was a calm in the Vikings' locker room.
