No line yet, but man, I just can't back Jason Campbell. I know the Vikings "D" is definitely not the 49ers, and being in Soldier Field might help.......... Depending on what the line is, maybe a no play for me, but we'll see.....

If the Bears offensive line plays anything like they did on Monday night, I don't think it matters who's playing quarterback.  They won't be in the game for long with that blocking.

I'm leaning Vikings too just because they are a fresh off a bye and the Bears had a short week and might still be a little sore from the Monday Night beat down by a very physical 49er team. If i were them, the last thing I would want to do is suit up again and try to tackle a well-rested Adrian Peterson.  I imagine Percy Harvin will be back in the lineup as well. I can't say I have a lot of faith in the Vikings offense, but they did beat a competitive Lions team without the help of Percy Harvin.  5 points just seems like a lot for this game given the circumstances.

i have a bad feeling about the momentum of this Bears team.  even if Cutler is able to play, i like the Vikings in this spot after being well-rested and will definitely be up for this game cuzz i think Bears have beat them last 4 times.  each situation being drastically different though, and this one gives Vikes the advantage.  this Vikes defense is solid and will make Cutler nervous trying to bounce back from a concussion.  Bears have a tough time when competing vs. tough defenses.  wanna know why?  cuzz they simply don't have many weapons on offense.

i see Vikings winning a close game here.  this is like the Super Bowl for them.

Percy Harvin is now doubtful, and I'm hearing Cutler is going to play, which is probably why the line has moved from 5 to 6.5.  I still think this is a low scoring game thats decided by 3 or 4 points.

Best possible scenario for the Vikes to win in Chi-town would've been Cutler out and a well rested team coming off the bye.  Cutler's in but hopefully the Bears offense looks like it did the last 2 weeks.  If so, Vikes pull it out, go 3-0 in division and have an actual legitimate chance to win the division

I really like the UNDER.  Look for the Bears to protect their most important asset with a heavy dose of Forte, and lots of mass protection looks.  They are going to play it safe and not want to expose Cutler to any contact today (they would be idiots if they allowed him to get hit again). They really have no choice in this matter because we know their offensive line isn't good enough to do the job with 5 guys. I would also expect to see a lot of 3 step drops and quick passes. 

Meanwhile, the Vikings have a guy by the name of Adrian Peterson that recently rushed for a 170 yards so the extra week definitely helped him recover from that effort. I expect him to run really hard today, especially given the reputation of the Bears secondary. You don't want your young quarterback to get picked off early by one of the best cornerback tandems in the league in Tillman and Jennings.

You have two teams that will be grounding & pounding more than usual. One team to protect their quarterback's banged up head, and the other to protect their quarterback's confidence. 

I don't trust Cutler coming back from this injury, and I think this line is just too big with the Vikings coming off the bye and the Bears coming off a Monday Night beat-down. I'll take the fresh team everytime!

VIKINGS +6 and UNDER 40

Vikes have the means to cover or win here, solid D and run game. Chi coming in limping and could be very dangerous and they've had their way w/ Min recently. Tough game to feel strongly about but would side with the dog to cover if not win.

Chi wins 23-20

The Bears and Vikings are going head to head, as the two best worst teams in the NFC.
The Colts and Bills do the same thing for the AFC today.
I read that in a article and it's true.
Have watched a handful of Bears and Vikings games, and think I have a somewhat good feel for each team.
This is a small bet for me- when it doubt, take the points.
Beyond that, Bears offensive line + Vikings Defensive line = sacks, Cutler + secondaries = Picks, Adrian Peterson vs Just about anyone = Over 100 yards and most likely a few tds, Bye week + more time to rest and prepare against a equal or slightly better team usually = win.
