With the Bears coming the the Dome and out of the playoff picture. They are going to try halt the Viking playoff hopes. Currently they hold the second wildcard spot. There are some keys that the Norsemen need to do to come out on tops against Da Bears.
1. Keep up the Pressure. With the defense constantly pressuring the QB ever since that Giants game. It gives an experienced QB a difficult time to pass the ball and figure out the defense. With Kyle Orton starting against the Vikes he will be having the Purple People in his face all game long.
2.Stopping the Run. This is something the Vikes have been able to do the past couple season. The main reason is they have the Williams Wrecking Crew(WWC). They need to stop whatever run the Bears do have. Maybe the WWC will get to their goal allowing 30 yards a game.
3. Run away. With AD coming off a difficult game against the 49ers. He is out to punish so defense. Sadly to say for Bears fans. It will more likely it will be against them. AD is averaging over 100 yards a game.This should a fun running game to watch.With Chester Taylor the other side of the 2 headed monster running attack they have. It gives defenses a heck of a time to prepare for 2 great running backs.
4. Manage it. With Tarvaris Jackson passing the ball with ease from the great play-action faking out the defenses focusing on stopping the Viking running game. In his second year he is doing great sustaining drives. Against the Bears he needs to keep up what he has been doing. Throwing the short pass and relying in his instincts.
In closing I think that the Vikings will win this game on Monday Night. Show the nation that they are a force to reckoned with.
