The raucous Soldier Field crowd was rocking in the primetime matchup. Running the football and forcing Rodgers into mistakes will be pivotal if the Vikings want to get to 6-4-1 and tighten up the NFC North race with the Bears. He hasn't thrown more than two passes in a season since 2014 in Kansas City.
In what most were thinking was a false façade in the Bears this season, they are proving the naysayers wrong week in and week out.
Bears coach Matt Nagy said the injury would prevent Trubisky from practicing Tuesday, and the team does not have a practice on Wednesday. Nagy also sent a message by keeping his foot on the gas pedal in going for and converting two different two-point conversions against the Vikings when the score didn't dictate it as necessary. It's certainly shared by those around Daniel in moments like these, Thanksgiving Day at Ford Field.
The NFL has dealt the Bears a lousy hand - a Thanksgiving morning (11:30 a.m.) game hard on the heels of a Sunday night game that was moved back from noon for the sole objective of increasing TV revenues.
This isn't a should Cousins be Minnesota's quarterback? piece.
With six games remaining on their 2018 schedule, including road matchups against the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks, Minnesota's path to get to the postseason this year just got even more hard with their loss to Chicago on Sunday.
The Bears' defense is impressive, to say the least. One bright spot for the Vikings was Ameer Abdullah settling nicely into the kick returner role after the team scooped him up off of waivers.
"We're not playing good football", running back LeGarrette Blount said.
While the Packers have been able to stop passers without King, as they own a top-five passing defense, they have yet to win a game on the road and face the tall task of slowing down Minnesota's star wideouts Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs. The two were there together from 2013-2015, and reunited when they both came to the Bears this season.
The three-time, first-team All-Pro hasn't played in a regular-season game since Week 1 of 2017, but he could be back at practice with the Chiefs next week. C Graham Glasgow left the game briefly with an injury in the fourth quarter. "But it's, again, there are just so many variables that go into it. Mitch is a tough kid". And even if he does play against the Vikings, it remains to be seen just how effective he will be with his thumb injury.
Mitchell Trubisky, Chicago's starting quarterback, is doubtful for Thursday's rematch with the Lions because of a right shoulder injury.
