The Chicago Bears have a lot riding on this upcoming Monday Night Football game.
The Chicago Bears have an incredibly important game on Monday night when they play the Minnesota Vikings. It sounds like a cliche when someone says it is the most important game of the year but in this case, it actually is. The Bears have lost three in a row after starting the season 5-1. They are 5-4 with their season reeling so a big divisional win might be the key to get it back on track. The Vikings are hot right now but they are still only 3-5.
If the Bears lose, they will fall to .500 with a 5-5 record after losing their fourth straight. They will have a bye week after this Monday night game before the much-anticipated matchup with the Green Bay Packers. Green Bay is significantly better than the Bears and they would be in big trouble if they went into that game on a four-game slide. If they lose to the Vikings, there is a good chance that they come out of the Packers game 5-6.
