Bears have no answer for Vikings defense in Week 17

"It's definitely nice to get those 13 wins", Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs said. The Minnesota defense forced Bears rookie quarterback Mitch Trubisky into a safety in the second quarter when he intentionally grounded the ball in the end zone.

"Right now it's all about team ball", Joseph said. And a Super Bowl that will be played at U.S. Bank Stadium.

If there were concerns raised on Sunday or by the last three games, it is that the Vikings haven't had to play a good team since they lost at Carolina on December 10, and haven't beaten a good team since they were in Atlanta on December 3.

On what proved to be something of an historic day, the Minnesota Vikings reached 13 regular-season victories for the second time in franchise history while finishing with the league's best defense and securing the second seed in the NFC playoffs. "They understand this system and what their responsibility is and they play very, very hard". Trubisky led two sustained fourth-quarter drives for Chicago, but got no points when the Bears failed to convert on fourth-and-goal plays from the 6-yard line and from the 2-yard line. "Teams obviously know what we do and do well, that's why we have to go back to work this next week and refine the things that we've done and make sure we take a good look at ourselves as an offense and how we can attack this postseason run".

The Bears stopped a streak of 90 minutes and 32 seconds by the Vikings without allowing a score, when Bryce Callahan returned a punt 59 yards for a touchdown with 5:50 left in the second quarter.

Modi said it is too early to tell if the proper flu strain was vaccinated against because the flu season is just starting. At least 11 people younger than 65 have died in California, while North Carolina has reported 12 deaths and SC seven.

"Defensively we have a lot of good players", Zimmer said.

With six receptions for 61 yards on Sunday against the Chicago Bears, Thielen completed his 2017 with 91 catches for 1,276 yards. Chicago was without regular offensive linemen Bobby Massie and Josh Sitton.

A loss that night would have left the Vikings tied for third place in the division, before a home game against the 4-1 Packers.

Elflein was held out of practice all week and, if the Vikings lock up a first-round bye, could have three weeks between games.
