Vikings/Bears Score Prediction Summary

They Can't Lose Now, Right? RIGHT?!? ANSWER ME!

The Vikings have one regular season game left, with the Chicago Bears coming to town to face their budding divisional rival at 3:25 after the NFL Flexed the game from its original 12-noon start. The Vikings/Bears are one of a few loose ends left in the NFL before the start of the playoffs and thankfully it takes place at home, where the Vikings are 5-2 (losing only to the Saints and… Sigh, Bills) and where the crowd should be loud enough to hear from space. With everything on the line, we wanted to conduct a round-table of predictions from our writers. We recently hired a few new writers over on purplePTSD.com and so we split up the predictions into two pieces (between the new writers and more senior staff on purplePTSD and it’s sister site, VikingsTerritory.com). We then polled our readers to see what their thoughts were on the game tomorrow and received 24 responses.

We tabulated the results below, take a look! Spoiler Alert: It’s (mostly and overwhelmingly) good news…

1. 21-17 Vikings
