Bears Taking On Vikings In Regular Season Finale

Ruben Holloway

It went almost 30 minutes without a point, while the lead was cut to three.

Nagy declared, on more than one occasion throughout the week, the Bears were not content to simply go through the motions just because they had already locked up - at a minimum - the No. 3 seed.

The Bears offense, meanwhile, greeted the Vikings in the best way possible - by hitting them in the mouths. A season that started with Super Bowl expectations for Minnesota ended up with the Vikings finishing 8-7-1. They would get the No. 5 seed and a first-round game at Dallas with a win and a loss by Seattle at home to Arizona.

Understandably, Nagy saw the value in Trubisky gaining experience against a good defense in hostile environment after the Vikings had cut the lead to three in the fourth quarter.

The second-year QB got things going with back-to-back scrambles for five and 12 yards.

Foles connected with Nelson Agholor on a 6-yard pass to make it 17-0 late in the third quarter. WR Taylor Gabriel (shoulder) was injured in the third quarter.

Watch Russia Successfully Test Its Newest Hypersonic Missile System
Putin was speaking after overseeing what the Kremlin said was a pre-deployment test of the new missile system, called Avangard. The Avangard is a hypersonic warhead re-entry vehicle that is created to outpace and outmaneuver USA missile defense systems.


"It shows who we are", Nagy said of Wims' contributions. "It's a lot of hard work that just paid off".

But how do you keep him engaged when he's not playing? He's been doing that.

The Bears needed only one moment of good fortune, too. He knows that at any given time, his name could be called, and it just happened to be this week.

Three plays after Wims' biggest catch as a pro, it appeared the drive had stalled when Trubisky was sacked on third-and-10. Vikings safety Harrison Smith, in contrast, retreated as Howard bore down on him and made a business decision to improve his angle rather than initiate contact. After Trubisky converted another third-and-6, this time with a nine-yard toss to Trey Burton, the Bears faced a third-and-7.

Following the incompletion, the two went at it on the sideline. "I remember being disappointed, and I don't want to feel that again". "Opportunity comes, and you've got to seize it". I could not be ungrateful. "I told the guys, to see how far we've come as a family, there's nothing like it".

Trubisky converted them by running for one and by completing two passes to seventh-round pick Javon Wims - who didn't have a catch in the National Football League before Sunday - and one to Burton.

The Bears said they're not seeking payback for Vikings safety Harrison Smith, whose hit on a sliding Trubisky late in the game in Chicago on November 18 drove the second-year quarterback's throwing shoulder into the ground and wound up sidelining him for the following two games.

"All the explicatives I was using on Cook", Hicks said. He lined up in the backfield and made the catch in traffic in the end zone.

The instillation of Kevin Stefanski as interim offensive coordinator and play-caller in place of DeFilippo has had the desired effect.

"I was a little bit nervous", Kwiatkoski said, "but I was excited".

Chicago were successful in their last outing against Minnesota, and they didn't afford Minnesota any payback this time around.
