Monday Night Football: Preview, odds, how to watch Vikings vs. Bears

The NFC North takes center stage on Monday night, as the division rival Minnesota Vikings (6-5) host the Chicago Bears (3-8) in the final game of Week 12.

Vikings star wide receiver Justin Jefferson (hamstring) will remain on the sidelines Monday, despite speculation he could play. Jefferson has not featured since injuring his right hamstring against the Chiefs on October 8.

Minnesota has a bye in Week 13, allowing Jefferson even more time to get healthy and return in time for the Vikings’ Week 14 matchup against the Raiders.

Yes, Jefferson is one of the top wideouts in the NFL, but his team has fared just fine without him. The Vikings are 5-1 in their last six games, three of which came with Josh Dobbs under center after Kirk Cousins’ season-ending injury.

Can Kevin O’Connell’s team continue to persevere without their two best offensive players against a stout Bears defense?
