Chicago vs. Minnesota Prediction: Vikings Aim to Increase Lead in NFC North

Bears have lost three of the last four meetings with their longtime division rivals.

The NFL's "Black and Blue" division takes center stage in Week 5, as the Chicago Bears head north to play the Minnesota Vikings. The Bears (2-2) had issues on both sides of the ball in last week's road loss to the New York Giants while the Vikings (3-1) fended off a tough challenge from the New Orleans Saints in London.

Now both teams return to the Midwest to do battle in a key NFC North matchup. The Vikings look to hang onto the top spot in the NFC North standings by picking up a first-half sweep of the division as the Bears are hoping to shake things up a bit by earning their first road win.
