The Vikings are a game back in the NFC Wild Card standings, behind 7-5 Seattle. Tampa Bay, Washington and Dallas are also vying for a playoff spot, all currently with 6-6 records. At 5-6-1, the St. Louis Rams are also a contender for that final spot.
Minnesota lost to the Bears, 28-10, two weeks ago in Chicago. Adrian Peterson rushed for 108 yards on 18 carries in the game, but the Chicago defense forced three Vikings turnovers.
The Vikings lost another division game on the road last week to the Green Bay Packers. After Sunday's game, Minnesota has road games against the Houston Texans and the Rams. The team's final game of the regular season is at home against the Packers.
