The Chicago Bears face the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, January 14 in Divisional Championship of the 2017 NFL season. Here is all the info you need to watch.
Predicting what the Minnesota Vikings have accomplished this season would have been next to impossible. When the season started, they thought that they’d have Sam Bradford at the helm and had playoff hopes with that. After he was injured, though, it looked bad as Case Keenum took over at quarterback. Now Keenum will look to put the Vikes in a great playoff spot in Week 17 as they finish the regular season at home against the Chicago Bears.
It’s a simple scenario for the Vikings in their regular season finale at US Bank Stadium. If they are able to topple the NFC North rivals they’re up against, they are the No. 2 seed in the conference in the postseason. That would mean a first-round bye and a big feather in their cap as they’d love to play in the Super Bowl in their home stadium.
This season, once again, has been forgettable for the Bears. Between injuries and a lackluster roster, it’s been a tough season to say the least. Having said that, rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky has shown flashes. To give the Chicago fans a good feeling going into the offseason, they’d love to see the youngster play well and pull off an upset win on Sunday.
Details for Sunday’s game are below:
Date: Sunday, January 14
Start Time: 4:40p ET

Despite all that they’ve been able to accomplish this season, the Vikings do indeed have something on the line in this game. They, in fact, control their own destiny. With that, though, the Bears would most certainly like to throw a monkey wrench into this divisional matchup. Subsequently, this is a fun one to keep an eye on come Sunday.
