Vikings vs Bears Preview and Pick ]]> include($base_url . “/includes/header.htm”); ?>
Minnesota Vikings (11-3) vs Chicago Bears (5-9)
The suddenly struggling Vikings are now in a fight with the Philadelphia Eagles to get that coveted 2 spot and a bye in the first round of the playoffs. Minnesota has lost their last 2 road games by a combined score of 56-24. Brett Favre has thrown 4 of his 7 interceptions this year in his last 3 games. The 5-9 Bears actually have a winning record (4-3) at home this year. Jay Cutler is a completely different quarterback at home. He has thrown 19 touchdowns and 25 interceptions overall this year, but at home he’s thrown 11 touchdowns to only 5 interceptions. I expect the Bears to play all-out in this one. I can’t lay the 7 on a team that has been blown out in their last 2 road games.
Pick: Bears +7
