Packers dominate Bears – Green Bay Packers demolish Chicago Bears, 55-14
The Chicago Bears are looking for redemption after a humiliating beatdown by the Green Bay Packers. They lost to them on Sunday Night Football, 55-14, and their record sunk to 3-6. They will have an opportunity to put that loss behind them as they take on the Minnesota Vikings.
Quarterback Jay Cutler threw two interceptions and failed to provide a spark on offense until the third quarter when the Packers were up 45-0.
Running back Matt Forte also had a forgettable performance as he was held to 54 yards on 17 carries, but wide receiver Brandon Marshall caught eight passes for 112 yards and a touchdown.
Meanwhile, the Vikings are coming off a bye week and hold a 4-5 record. They have won two games in a row, and their most recent win came against the Washington Redskins.
Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater continued to play turnover-free ball as he threw for 268 yards and a touchdown, and running back Matt Asiata rushed for three touchdowns to make the difference for the Vikings.
Both teams are long shots to contend for an NFC North title, but the Vikings could be a sneaky contender if they can improve to 5-5 with a win. However, the Bears have more firepower on offense with home-field advantage and revenge on their minds.
Prediction: Bears 27, Vikings 24
