The Minnesota Vikings will head to Soldier Field on Monday night to take on the Chicago Bears.

The Bears are 4-9 and have virtually no chance of making it to the playoffs. But the coaching staff and players are all fighting for their jobs for the 2022 season and will need to put up a respectable showing for what remains of this campaign to extend their stay in the Windy City.

The Vikings can sneak into the playoffs, provided they finish the season strong. They are 6-7 and could potentially secure a postseason spot if they manage three wins in their remaining four games. It's a sprint to the finish for the Vikings and it starts on Monday Night Football against the Bears.

Here's the injury report and starting lineup for the Bears and Vikings:
