Tonight's Vikings vs Bears live stream features a Minnesota team trying to separate themselves for the rest of the "6-7 pack" in the NFC playoff picture, while division rival Chicago tries to bounce back from last Sunday night's loss. Cousins takes on Fields in this NFL live stream.
The Vikings (6-7) come into this game after narrowly escaping their Thursday night matchup with the Steelers in week 14 with a 36-28 win. Minnesota lead 29-0 late in the third quarter before Pittsburgh started to storm back. Now, after a 10-day break, the Vikings are hoping to use that mini-bye week as a reset to get ready for a playoff push.
Minnesota is one of five NFC teams with a (6-7) record heading into week 15. They have made the playoffs just once in the Kirk Cousins-era and currently hold tie-breakers over fellow 6-7 teams, Philly and Atlanta.
Cousins has put together another solid season with the Vikings. Now in his fourth year with the team, he has posted a 102.3 passer rating, sixth highest in the league and he's one of only two quarterbacks with at least 27 touchdown passes and five or fewer interceptions. Aaron Rodgers is the other.
The Bears (4-9) haven't been eliminated from the playoffs, but it certainly seems like that will be their fate. Chicago has only made the playoffs twice in the last decade, both times under head coach Matt Nagy. Unfortunately, both postseason trips resulted in a Wild Card exit.
Justin Fields and the Bears' offense are coming off their best game of the season, despite it resulting in a loss. The Chicago hit the 30-point mark for the first time this season, in their 45-30 loss in Green Bay last week. Fields threw for 224 yards and two touchdowns, but also threw two interceptions. One pick was returned 55 yards for a touchdown.
The Vikings are 7-point road favorites over the Bears. The over/under is 47.
