Watch Chicago Bears vs Minnesota Vikings Online

The Chicago Bears still have a more than legitimate shot of punching a ticket to the playoffs while the Minnesota Vikings must resort to playing for pride in their NFL week 13 football game. These two division rivals will face off up north today when we watch Bears vs Vikings online free live streaming on Fox by following the links presented below.

Veteran backup quarterback Josh McCown has stepped in and more than adequately run the offense in the absence of injured starter Jay Cutler. Over the five games he has played in this season for the Bears, three of which he started, McCown has a quarterback rating of 100.8 and has thrown seven touchdowns versus only a single interceptions. Even so, the Bears have lost two of three with McCown running the show and got blown out by the Rams 42-21 last week.

The biggest problems for the Chicago Bears (6-5) have nothing to do with what’s going on offensively. They should have been able to beat the Rams with 21 points on the board. The defense has given up an abysmal average of 145.2 yards per game on the season, bad enough for dead last in the entire NFL. The Rams ran silly against them last week for 258 total rushing yards and now they have to face Adrian Peterson and his incredible skill set.

Even though the Bears’ record doesn’t seem that great on paper, they are only one game back of the Detroit Lions for the top spot in the NFC North, and the Lions have had their struggles in recent weeks as well. Both the Lions and the Bears got an assist from the Packers and Vikings last week when those two squads engaged in a rare tie game that could not be resolved in overtime. Watch Bears vs Vikings online free live streaming on Fox today to see if the Bears can make a move for first place.

Minnesota’s (2-8-1) season was essentially lost weeks ago when a carousel began at the quarterback position. Christian Ponder was benched, a couple other guys gave it a shot and couldn’t perform any better, and now Ponder is back in the starting role where he put up his best game of the season against the Packers last week with 233 yards passing and a touchdown. He played an almost identical game against the Bears earlier in the season but with only six fewer yards passing.

The key to today’s game could be Peterson and whether he’s able to run free through the Bears’ porous defense. Peterson scampered for 146 in last week’s tie and scored a touchdown, so his will be lighting up knowing how susceptible the Bears defense is to the run with Charles Tillman and Lance Briggs remaining sidelined due to injury. Considering the Bears have won seven of eight in the series, Minnesota will take any edge it can get.
