John Fox not likely to return to Chicago Bears after season

Sunday’s season finale for the Bears in Minnesota is a chance for guys like Prince Amukamara to prove they’re worth keeping as the team rebuilds

A week before their October 9 game in Chicago, the Minnesota Vikings fell to 2-2 with a 14-7 home loss to the Detroit Lions, losing rookie running back Dalvin Cook to a torn ACL in the process.

When the playoffs start, the Vikings will be familiar with numerous teams they will likely face in two weeks, including Carolina, Los Angeles and New Orleans.

And rather than stick with Keenum in Chicago as they tried to avoid going 0-2 in the division, the Vikings opted to put their trust in Sam Bradford's aching left knee, in a move that went haywire so quickly that the team took the rare step of making head athletic trainer Eric Sugarman available to the media the next day to explain the decision.

Vikings running back Latavius Murray had a pair of touchdowns, while quarterback Case Keenum was 21 of 29 for 189 yards and one touchdown. "Preparation. how to carry yourself as a pro and just getting comfortable within this offense is probably the main thing (I've done)".




The 15-year veteran cornerback doesn't want his message to overshadow what would be a 13-3 regular season, the Vikings' best record since their 15-1 season in 1998.

"Yeah, I'd like to say no, but I think it's reality that it (can)", Thielen said. The unit led the National Football League in least points allowed and has the ability to shut down any offense, which should keep the Vikings in any game.

Keenum said 13-3 had "a nice ring to it". This will mark the third season in a row under Fox that the Bears finished last in their division. "This place is crazy-hard for people to play". The Bears are 1-5 against each of their three NFC North foes under Fox. "I don't feel like we'd get another coach that would be better". Stefon Diggs became the fastest player to reach 200 receptions.

Right guard Joe Berger is expected slide over to start at center, opening up the possibility of right tackle Mike Remmers shifting inside to guard and Rashod Hill starting at right tackle. Randy Moss and Cris Carter are the only ones ahead on either list. TE Kyle Rudolph, bothered by an ankle injury the past three weeks, wore a walking boot in the locker room after the game.
