Minnesota Vikings vs Chicago Bears will be a massive game for both teams in Week 2 of the NFL 2013 regular season match ups, with the Vikings desperate to claim their first win of the season, and the Bears looking to maintain their perfect start. The game is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream (details below).
This massive NFC North match up should be a fiercely fought contest between the two sides. The Vikings have already played one match within the division in their opening week game, however, they came out on the wrong side of a 24-34 scoreline against Detroit.
That means their best case scenario at the end of Week 2 will be leaving with a 1-1 record.
Last season these two teams split their match ups against one another, taking a game each. The Vikings won their home encounter 21-14, which sparked a four game win streak in which they completed their push for the playoffs. However, they were well defeated on the road 28-10.
Today's contest of course will be played out at Soldier Field, so the Vikings will need to put on a significantly better showing than last year if they are going to get anything from this.
This season the Bears are led by new head coach Marc Trestman. The Bear's first showing under him last week will have been nothing more than satisfactory. They did claim the win 24-21 – which of course is the most important thing – but they looked lethargic at times, and they were perhaps a little lucky to have managed to hold off the Cincinnati Bengals.
They will look to Jay Cutler to maintain his good form, and continue to connect well with Brandon Marshall to heap misery on their opposition today. Whether that will be enough or not remains to be seen.
