Preview: Vikings at Bears

Posted: Updated:

Injury Report:

Minnesota Vikings:

John Sullivan- Knee- Probable

Chicago Bears:

Julius Peppers- Illness- Probable

Charles Tilman- Knee- Probable

The Vikings:

Under no circumstance would I advise plugging Christian Ponder in your lineup...so don't.

Adrian Peterson scored a 78 yard touchdown on his first run from scrimmage, then ran for 15 yards the rest of the game. Yuck. With the field tore up from a college game Saturday and a mess from the rain in Chicago, Peterson will have to deal with the elements as well as a pesky Bears defense. He'll finish with near 100 yards and a score.

Ponder's poor play takes every receiver out of the passing game. Keep them on your bench.

I always play week to week with kickers and defenses, so keep both Walsh and the DST on your bench.

The Bears:

Again, the weather is going to play a part in this game and with the "more passy" Bears, will effect them more than the ground and pound Norsemen. Cutler will go over 200 yards and connect on a pair of scores.

Matt Forte hasn't been talked up enough in my opinion. I like Matt Forte more than Reggie Bush and Bush just tore the Vikings defense a new one last week. Forte should come close to 150 combo yards and a pair of scores.

Brandon Marshall will score in the passing game and finish with over 100 yards. Alshon Jeffry is a sneaky start this week and will score as well with 82 yards. Martellus Bennett will grab 62 yards in a Bears rout.

Robbie Gould and the defense is a weekly start in the windy city.
