CHICAGO (CBS) — The Bears travel up to Minnesota on Sunday for an important conference game against the Vikings.

WBBM Bears game analyst Tom Thayer sees these factors as keys to the game:

  • The offensive line needs to deal with the noise level in the Metrodome and manage the snap count, while protecting Jay Cutler.
  • The defense needs to rattle the Vikings young quarterback, Christian Ponder.
  • Thayer likes the Bears running back tandem of Matt Forte and Michael Bush, while he sees the Bears needing to use its wide receiver size and speed to loosen up the Vikings’ coverage in the secondary.

His prediction? Listen to the interview with WBBM Newsradio’s Josh Liss.
