Vikings offensive line in flux heading into final week of season

  • Prediction Will Mitchell Trubisky end his 2017 season on a high note

"I think this is the first time in my career where you can officially say this game counts as more than one", Minnesota tight end Kyle Rudolph said. The Vikings surrendered a season-low 3.8 yards per play.

"We wanted to finish this season off right", Murray said.

They've made a convincing case they're a strong contender for the Super Bowl that happens to be on their home turf. "You rest and recover and then watch the game with the teams you could potentially be playing". Both marks rank among the top 10 seasons ever by a Vikings wide receiver.

If there were concerns raised on Sunday or by the last three games, it is that the Vikings haven't had to play a good team since they lost at Carolina on December 10, and haven't beaten a good team since they were in Atlanta on December 3.

The Vikings were up 3-2 in Chicago when they turned to Keenum just before halftime, and it was only when the offense began to coalesce around the quarterback that Minnesota avoided what could have been a costly loss.

That likely means a speech from Newman if the Vikings beat the Bears on Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium, a talk that could stress the importance of bye-week studying over bye-week partying. Fox's record in three seasons as the Bears head coach is now 14-34.

A week before their October 9 game in Chicago, the Minnesota Vikings fell to 2-2 with a 14-7 home loss to the Detroit Lions, losing rookie running back Dalvin Cook to a torn ACL in the process.

Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray powers in 1-yard touchdown. He leaped to his feet and veered left past the confused Vikings and untouched for the score. He had one reception for 1 yard in the game. Minnesota was dominating on defense, as has become the calling card of these Vikings, holding Chicago to 201 yards of offense-most of it in the second half when the result was no longer in doubt. Jeremiah Sirles started at left guard for Nick Easton, who will miss the playoffs because of a broken ankle.

Receiver Adam Thielen can increase his 2018 salary escalator by another $250,000 with five catches to reach 90 for the season. Chicago was without regular offensive linemen Bobby Massie and Josh Sitton.
