Tonight, the Green Bay Packers will sit back and watch as two of their divisional rivals square off under the lights. Monday Night Football is here, and it pits the NFC North-leading Vikings against the bottom-feeding Bears in a stirring prime time matchup.

Back for the Bears is Jay Cutler, who was conveniently cleared to play after Brian Hoyer suffered a fractured arm in last Thursday’s game against the Packers. Meanwhile, the Vikings are coming off their first loss of the year, wherein the Philadelphia Eagles manhandled Minnesota’s offensive line and put constant pressure on Sam Bradford.

Can the Bears replicate Philly’s formula for pressuring Bradford? Will the absence of running back Jerick McKinnon hurt the Vikings’ ability to make plays on the ground? Or is Minnesota’s defense just too good for a struggling Bears team this week? Tune in to find out!
