Shut down the running game and we should be ok.

Let's pound the Bears early, rest some starters and give Teddy some playing time.

Oh, who am I kidding, we'll manage to make the game "interesting" well into the 4th quarter. :govikes:

Kyle Fuller has always played well against us. Hopefully Keenum rebounds.

He's not bad as a receiver either. He's really a good fund by Spelman.

Good start ... real good run blocking so far

I was worried about all the OL shake ups
But they got great push and all seemed to be
doing their jobs

Capable long-snapper, too. He got a game ball from Zimmer last week.

That was a really weak call on Murray.

I see almost every RB block that same way. It may have been a hold but it is almost never called.

This is the issue I'm seeing. Instead of a possible TD or red zone opportunity, the Vikings are punting. Not sure if the Vikings can afford to do this in the playoffs. Keenum needs to start hitting on these missed opportunities

I sure would like to see some of the pass rush we were seeing the first half of the season. Trubisky needs to get rattled a bit.

Kyle Carter. He took Blake Bell's spot when he went on IR.
