The Vikings vs Bears live stream is scheduled to start at 8:15 p.m. ET/ 5:15 p.m. PT Monday, November 16 on ESPN.

It's time for the Vikings vs Bears live stream, which has  two teams on two very different trajectories. Minnesota is on a roll with two consecutive wins (following a quite dismal start to the season) including a blowout against the rival Detroit Lions last week. 

Minnesota is sporting more swagger than its 3-5 record would indicate. As for the 5-4 Bears, Chicago enters this NFL live stream coming off a three-game losing streak--albeit against some very tough competitors. The visiting Vikings are currently favored by just 3 points ahead of tonight's matchup. 

Beyond recent fortunes, another distinguishing mark between these teams is the size of their scoring, with Minnesota racking up about an extra touchdown per game (27.1 vs 19.8 points). Fortunately for Chicago, the Bears are quite strong on defense; and they have a record of holding back the Vikings.

If Chicago prevails, it will likely be with one of the "ugly wins" the team is famous for--by using its defense to cripple the opponent while eking out just a few more points than its rival. That could happen, but with the Vikings' high-scoring tendencies and their newfound mojo, Minnesota's chances look a tad better than Chicago's.

In the US, Vikings vs Bears is going to be carried on ESPN, which is available on two of our favorite streaming services fuboTV and Sling TV. The game starts at 8:15 p.m. ET/ 5:15 p.m. PT on Monday, Nov. 16.

Sling may get you this game, but it doesn't include CBS (nor NFL RedZone).

Fubo.TV is one of the best streaming services that offers ESPN and it's our top pick for watching all of the 2020 NFL live streams, Fubo has all of the right broadcast networks and the two cable channels you'll need to get your football fix. Who needs cable? Not Fubo subscribers. It's got a 7-day free trial so you don't need to pay up front.View Deal
