Vikings at Bears: Preview, prediction, odds and pick

Bears secondary faces tough challenge against Vikings WRs in Week 5

The Steelers’ second-ranked defense is relishing a shot at slowing down Jacksonville running back Leonard Fournette on Sunday.

The final game of the Week 5 slate will feature the Minnesota Vikings traveling to the Windy City to take on the Chicago Bears.

The Bears, however, will be going the rookie route on Monday with Mitchell Trubisky expected to make his debut for the team.

The keys to success for Trubisky are clear and simple.

In his only game this year, Bradford threw for 346 yards and three touchdowns while completing 84.4-percent of his passes, picking up where he left off after a 2016 season in which he led the National Football League in completion percentage.

Expect the Bears to send a lot of pressure Bradford's way on Monday night as Chicago head coach John Fox will want to see just how healthy the quarterback's knee really is. The Bears through so much of Trubisky that they traded up one spot to get him in last April's draft, and will now hand the keys to the franchise over to him.

He was the 2nd overall pick in last April's NFL Draft. Bradford has been battling a knee injury. A second opinion on the quarterback's left knee on September 22 confirmed the Vikings' belief that Bradford would not need surgery on his knee, and after taking last week off to rest, Bradford participated in all three of the Vikings' practices this week (albeit in a limited fashion).
