Falcons have big advantage over Rams in playoff experience

Falcons have big advantage over Rams in playoff experience

The only question heading into the last game of the year against the Chicago Bears is where the Vikings would be seeded in the NFL.

For a second straight game, the offense looked conservative with a lack of explosive plays and deep passing game.

Minnesota's gonna have to fix that.

The Vikings, who will have a first-round bye next week, will wait to see who they play in their first trip to the divisional playoffs since 2009.

The Bears stopped a streak of 90 minutes and 32 seconds by the Vikings without allowing a score, when Bryce Callahan returned a punt 59 yards for a touchdown with 5:50 left in the second quarter.

Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray powers in 1-yard touchdown.

Over the past three games, the Vikings held the Bears, Packers and Bengals to a combined 17 points and six third-down conversions.

Howard has four carries for -3 yards in the first half.

Zimmer would not specify who would start at right guard in place of Berger, but it's possible Mike Remmers will slide over from right tackle, with Rashod Hill replacing him.

Depending upon the outcome of the Jacksonville and Denver games, Minnesota is on pace to finish first in both total defense (280.9 yards) and scoring defense (16.1 PPG) for the first time in 47 years. The Vikings went on to win eight straight games after October 9.

Bears rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, playing behind a patchwork offensive line, was 20 of 36 for 176 yards and was sacked once.

The Bears didn't fold early despite being eliminated from the playoffs weeks ago.

Minnesota's starting offensive linemen were together for roughly 12 minutes in Week 16 for the first time since October 9.

Despite all that they've been able to accomplish this season, the Vikings do indeed have something on the line in this game.

For now, they celebrate how they closed out the season.
