Welcome to Monday Night Football.

The Minnesota Vikings travel to the Windy City, my hometown for two more months, and take on the Chicago Bears.

It is a huge game for both teams.

For the Vikings, they get Sam Bradford back, and quite frankly looked like one of the best teams in the NFL with him slinging it in game one.

For the Bears, it is the start of what they hope is a new era in Bears football, as Mitch Trubisky gets his first look with the Monsters of the Midway.

Here’s what you need to know:

Soldier Field, Chicago, Illinois

TV Channel:

Announcers: Sean McDonough and Jon Gruden w/ Lisa Salters

NFL Game Pass and live streaming via WatchESPN.


Vikings (-3)
Over/Under: 40.5

This one seems pretty easy to call. A very good defense with a good to very good offense against a rookie on Monday Night Football. However, don’t sleep on Trubisky being the difference maker similar to Deshaun Watson with the Texans.
