  • Prediction Will Mitchell Trubisky end his 2017 season on a high note

Latavius Murray turned in another strong game of power running, scoring the Vikings' first two touchdowns.

The Vikings closed the regular season by holding on to defeat the Chicago Bears 23-10 as 66,802 fans courageous the sub-zero temperature to attend the indoor game at U.S. Bank Stadium.

The Bears scored two trick-play special teams touchdowns against the Vikings this year.

"It's a box that we checked", Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen said.

"I think this is the first time in my career where you can officially say this game counts as more than one", Minnesota tight end Kyle Rudolph said.

The Vikings may at the moment be the - choose one - best, scariest or best-positioned team in the NFC.

"That week is going to be awesome".

The regular season finale has arrived for the NFL. The team did have four 12-2 finishes during the old 14-game schedule.

Keenum hit Stefon Diggs in the back of the end zone on Minnesota's final play of the third quarter for a 15-yard touchdown and a 23-7 lead. "It's not just us, it's the coaches".

The current Vikings defense is on the verge of an accomplishment only Bud Grant's "Purple People Eaters" have brought to Minnesota.

Apple's market capitalisation rose to $868bn in November, making it the world's most valuable publicly-traded company. Apple's retail chief, Angela Ahrendts , was the highest paid executive, bringing in $24,216,072.

"I don't know if it's a good thing or bad thing", he said. Fox's record in three seasons as the Bears head coach is now 14-34.

The Minnesota Vikings defense forces Chicago Bears rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky to make crucial mistake causing safety.

The Vikings defense put an exclamation point on the win with a pair of stops on first-and-goal in the fourth quarter. "I don't feel like we'd get another coach that would be better".

All the hard work could mean the Vikings never have to leave home for the playoffs. "They have to come to U.S. Bank Stadium".

The Vikings lost starting left guard Nick Easton for the season with a fractured ankle in Week 16 against the Packers.

"This place is insane hard for teams to come in and play, especially with our defense". "It's not about individual stats, sacks or interceptions".

All four players who have experienced a first-round bye said rest at the end of a grinding season is the most important part of a week off. The offense went without a turnover for the second straight game.

Keenum said 13-3 had "a nice ring to it".

Elflein was held out of practice all week and, if the Vikings lock up a first-round bye, could have three weeks between games. The players now realize there is plenty at stake as they take aim at trying to win the first Super Bowl in franchise history.

"We're looking forward to putting our stamp on the postseason", Keenum said.
