Vikings have plenty of incentive to beat Bears

Vikings have plenty of incentive to beat Bears

Minnesota coach Mike Zimmer says rookie center Pat Elflein will miss Sunday's game against Chicago because of a shoulder injury, his second missed start of the season. The man who started seven different quarterbacks in his Bears career saw Mitch Trubisky - finally, the one the team can build around - struggle against an elite defense.

Fox wouldn't reveal last week if he'd spoken to general manager Ryan Pace or team ownership about his future.

The Vikings can scout the Bears all they want, but there's not doubt the Bears have a few plays that aren't on tape.

A better result Sunday wouldn't have changed the momentum inside Halas Hall - but the loss was disconcerting nonetheless.

And Latavius Murray notched his second 100-rushing yard day with the Vikings, a 20-111-2 effort as part of Minnesota's 147-yard day. Two of those came on third downs on the same drive in the second quarter.

Howard has four carries for -3 yards in the first half. From there, Mitchell Trubisky fired thee straight incompletions, and on fourth down, Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes broke up a touchdown pass to Dontrelle Inman with a nice play.

Case Keenum rebounded from a down outing last Saturday to complete 21-of-29 for 189 yards and a touchdown, a 15-yarder to Stefon Diggs - his eighth of the season to double his previous high and tie Kyle Rudolph for the team lead. Callahan knelt near the sideline while Tarik Cohen lined up on the opposite side as the expected returner, before sprinting for a sliding catch of the kick that hung over the middle of the field.

Callahan later made amends by returning a punt 59 yards for a touchdown off a trick play, closing the gap to 14-7 with 5:50 left in the half.

Minnesota held the Bears to just one third-down conversion and prevented the visitors from crossing midfield until the fourth quarter.
