Vikings are in survival mode but I think Teddy and/or Sam will be back after the bye. If we can be .500 or better up to the bye, they can make a second half run. This team should be able to beat the Ravens and Browns. At least one, both is optimal obviously.

What really bothered me about this game is that I had Murray and Howard in my team this week. I really needed them to step up and they failed me that's another loss for me this week.

Good win in an ugly game. Any win in Soldier Field is a good win.

The rookie Trubisky started hot, but finished with only 4 completions after the first quarter. If not for stupid plays like allowing a TD on a fake punt, this game isn't close. But ... it was close. We got the win, and that's what counts. Especially a road win in the division.

Defense was stout, giving up just 274 yards. Only one sack, but it was a big strip-sack by Griffen.

Gotta get ready now on a short week for Green Bay. Couple of home games in a row. We need to get these.

With this defense, they can win against anybody this year. I really think the Vikings match up well against Gb. They have no running game so they'll be one dimensional. Going to be a fun game.

I'm going to say it again, the reds were terrible this game for both sides. I really hope the league gets on their case for it. Almost all Of the holding calls were atrocious. That call on Chicago at the end was a joke. Yes , you could argue they owed us one, but you don't call that crap At that part of the game.

Didn't watch the game. Is he good or did he just have a good game? Scary if they finally have a legit running game.

It was a Good ugly win!
I was surprised Zimmer didn't pull Bradford sooner. Cause you could tell he was hurt.

Felt like their running game was better than it has been. He's probably an improvement. Not dramatically, but improved.

Did Treadwell have a catch? Or is that a stupid question? Another miss on Rick's part im afraid.

Dude give it a rest. It's something you could've easily looked up in a box score but instead come on here to complain about it. Go back and look at all your posts in this thread. Its one complaint after another. It's like that every single week no matter if we win by 20 or lose by 20. Its beyond tiring
