BEARS vs. VIKINGS: Week 11 Pre-Gamin’ – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Bears

At this point, the only thing left for second-year Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky to do is pick up a signature win in a primetime game against a divisional opponent.

We waited patiently for a breakout and were rewarded in Week 4 against the Buccaneers. Trubisky followed that performance with a strong showing against the Dolphins despite a losing effort. And when we found ourselves yearning for Trubisky to lead a triumphant effort against a divisional foe, that happened too. The stakes have never been higher for Trubisky as he faces what is the biggest test of his pro career with first place on the line in front of a nationally televised audience.

And if you weren’t convinced it was a big game, here’s Mike Singletary to pump us up:

Yep, I’m ready. Are you?
