Two NFC North rivals collide as the Bears travel to Minneapolis to take on the Vikings in Week 5. The Bears have had a strange season so far, finding themselves at 2-2 after a loss to the Giants last Sunday. They have seemed incapable of passing the ball on offense to this point, with quarterback Justin Fields attempting just 67 passes through four games. For reference, Buffalo’s Josh Allen attempted 63 passes in a single game in Week 3 against Miami.
With lead running back David Montgomery nursing a knee injury, Khalil Herbert got the bulk of the carries last week but couldn’t find the end zone despite racking up 77 yards. The Bears seem committed to a run-first offense, but eventually, head coach Matt Eberflus will surely have to open up the playbook and allow Fields to throw it down the field.

Meanwhile, the Vikings are sitting at 3-1 after taking down the Saints in London last week.
They can consider themselves a bit fortunate after Wil Lutz’s last-second field goal try bounced off the upright and crossbar to doom New Orleans — but it was still a valuable win for the Vikings. Justin Jefferson had a big day, catching 10 passes for 147 yards, while Kirk Cousins finished with 273 passing yards to go with 1 touchdown and 1 interception.
With reigning division champion Green Bay looking shaky early in the season, Minnesota will be seeking another win this week to move to 4-1 and keep the pressure on.
Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings clash with Justin Fields and the Chicago Bears in an NFC North matchup during NFL Week 5. Cousins has the NFL’s longest active streak with 34 consecutive games with a touchdown pass. Fields are last among NFL starters with 34 completions. This rivalry is set to kick off Sunday, October 9 at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET with a live national TV broadcast on Fox.
