A home game with the soft-as-pudding Seahawks prior to the Christmas Day game at Green Bay was supposed to tighten the Bears and get them ready for a peak performance.
While the outcome of the game is uncertain, it is certain that Sunday will be the last time Bears fans see their beloved play a home game until next September.
The Bears are ready to play in a frigid day on a hopefully thawed field. The question, however, is are the Vikings? Minnesota hasn’t played an outdoor home game since 1981 and the Metrodome’s collapsed roof moved the game to TCF Bank Stadium.
Some things this season have just gone the Bears’ way. They’ve been able to stay healthy, and have faced some teams that are dealing with injuries to key positions. You can add the Minnesota Vikings to that list.
Tarvaris Jackson has been moved to the Injured Reserve list and will be inactive for the Bears-Vikings Monday night game.
The Minnesota Vikings have had a rough season. While their hopes for the playoffs were slim before last week’s game, the Vikings are know looked at in a much different way.
The Bears-Vikings game will already have multiple storylines before the game even begins. And one of those revolves around the health of Vikings’ quarterback Brett Favre.
