Chicago Bears to Start Trubisky Monday Night

Monday Night Football will be an interesting adventure this week when the Minnesota Vikings and the Chicago Bears meet at Soldier Field. The game will start a little after 8:30 pm EST. The game will be broadcast by ESPN.

Oddsmakers have the Vikings listed as 3.5-point favorites. The total is sitting at 41 total points scored.

Last time out for Chicago, they were a 35-14 loser as they battled the Green Bay Packers on the road. The Bears failed to cover in the match as a +7-point underdog, while 49 combined points moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky commanded the attention of dozens of NFL scouts as he shattered school records at North Carolina a season ago. His rifle arm is something to reckon with, for sure. His experience is what will be the challenge tonight against a good Vikings defense. Trubisky will have an opportunity to showcase his abilities in front of millions of viewers.

Chicago’s defense has offered some reason for hope in an ugly start to the season. The Bears are No. 8 in the NFL in total defense with 306.3 yards allowed per game.

Vikings Look to Bounce Back from a Tough Loss

Minnesota lost its last outing, a 14-7 result against the Detroit Lions on October 01. The Vikings failed to cover in that game as a -2.5-point favorite, while the 21 combined points took the game UNDER the total.

Minnesota ranks No. 1 in the league in third-down defense, allowing only a 25.6 percent conversion rate. They are tied for eighth in scoring defense at 19 points per game.

Defensive end Everson Griffen leads the team with five sacks. Safety Andrew Sendejo has emerged as a leader with 32 tackles and an interception.

Minnesota will play its first game since losing rookie running back Dalvin Cook. Cook tore his left ACL that have him out the rest of the season. Cook rushed for 354 yards in three-plus contests.

This marks the 113th meeting with the Vikings leading the series 58-52-2. The Bears have won eight of the last nine meetings at Soldier Field.
