The Minnesota Vikings for their seventh win of the season when  they host Chicago Bears tonight in at U.S. Bank Stadium for Week 12 of the NFL season.

The Vikings (6-5) are coming off a 21-20 loss to the Broncos last Sunday in Denver. The Bears (3-8) lost to the Lions 31-26 last Sunday in Detroit.

Quarterback Joshua Dobbs' scrambling speed is a vital skill that has given the Minnesota Vikings an unexpected jolt after the season-ending Achilles tendon injury to Kirk Cousins. Dobbs is second among NFL quarterbacks with 389 rushing yards.

There has been speculation all week that Justin Jefferson could return to the lineup tonight, but the Jefferson says that he will not take the field against the Bears, despite being listed on the injury report as questionable.
