The Vikings closed the regular season by holding on to defeat the Chicago Bears 23-10 as 66,802 fans fearless the sub-zero temperature to attend the indoor game at U.S. Bank Stadium.
ABOUT THE VIKINGS (12-3): Jerick McKinnon totaled his second-best career total in scrimmage yards with 146 in the previous encounter with Chicago, highlighted by a 55-yard touchdown run. Murray had 111 yards rushing on 22 carries.
ABOUT THE BEARS (5-10): Rookie Mitchell Trubisky believes there is a night-and-day difference from when he made his National Football League debut against Minnesota in Week 5 until now. He also gave up a safety.
The Minnesota Vikings took care of business on Sunday and one victory pretty much turned into two. Chicago's offense managed just one first down in its initial four possessions, but the Bears special teams got them on the board when Bryce Callahan returned a Minnesota punt 59 yards for a touchdown. The rookie's left shoulder injury first popped up after the December 3 win in Atlanta.
Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs grabs a touchdown in the third quarter to put the Vikings up 23-7. Chicago's offense finally scored with 8:22 to play via a 55-yard Mike Nugent field goal. Defensively, the Bears are top 10 in points and yards allowed.
Cowboys WR Cole Beasley didn't travel with team to Philadelphia
That said, they will need Foles to get as comfortable as possible with the offense if Philadelphia is to stand a chance. The outcome of this game is meaningless, but coming away with no major injuries will be the real victory on Sunday.

Khloe Kardashian also announced that she is expecting her first child with National Basketball Association star, Tristan Thompson. In the pictures, that have leaked online, Kylie is seen taking centre stage as Travis, stares broodily behind her.

The incident was the latest round of escalation between Israel and the Palestinians, which was triggered by U.S. President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in a statement on December 6.
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. The Vikings beat Dallas at home and then lost at New Orleans in overtime of the NFC Championship Game.
Look on the bright side, though, Vikings fans.
Bears: Two starting offensive linemen, LT Bobby Massie (knee) and RG Josh Sitton (ankle), did not play. His first season in Chicago was his best, with a 6-10 record. A potent running game and stifling defense helped Case Keenum emerge victorious despite completing just 14 of 25 for 139 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 16-0 win over Green Bay. But Vikings punter Ryan Quigley had a tell, he said, that led the Bears to think it was going left.
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.
