Vikings offensive line in flux heading into final week of season

  • Prediction Will Mitchell Trubisky end his 2017 season on a high note

Both marks rank among the top 10 seasons ever by a Vikings wide receiver. They were penalized 10 times for 116 yards and went 1 for 14 on third and fourth down conversions.

By the time the Vikings play in their first playoff game, they will be well-rested, well-positioned and perhaps a little anxious about how their offense will function if they fall behind or have to win a high-scoring game.

"There are a few examples of that - like the Giants a year ago", Newman said, referencing when several NY receivers were spotted partying in Miami the Monday before they lost to the Green Bay Packers in a Sunday wild-card game.

A handful of Vikings have incentives on the line Sunday, led by running back Latavius Murray, who can earn a $500,000 incentive and unlock a $500,000 salary escalator for 2018 by rushing for 169 yards against the Bears to give him 900 yards on the season.

"I just got more comfortable as the weeks went on", Trubisky said.

The Bears finished the season with a 5-11 record, a two-game improvement over their 2016 campaign. The unit led the National Football League in least points allowed and has the ability to shut down any offense, which should keep the Vikings in any game.

"Before you know it", Callahan said,", "I'm already approaching the end zone wth one blocker guiding me throughout".

"They're awesome", Keenum said of the defense. Entering Sunday's finale, the Bears are just 14-33 in the John Fox Era.

"There's a lot that we have in store as an offense, I think we can play a lot better", Thielen added. Stefon Diggs became the fastest player to reach 200 receptions.

A loss that night would have left the Vikings tied for third place in the division, before a home game against the 4-1 Packers. Jeremiah Sirles started at left guard for Nick Easton, who will miss the playoffs because of a broken ankle. Randy Moss and Cris Carter are the only ones ahead on either list.

Right guard Joe Berger is expected slide over to start at center, opening up the possibility of right tackle Mike Remmers shifting inside to guard and Rashod Hill starting at right tackle.
