Guide to Game Day: Vikings-Bears Week 15

The Vikings (6-7) and Bears (6-7) are scheduled to meet for the 120th time overall at noon (CT) Sunday.

Minnesota will close out its home slate against Chicago for the fifth consecutive season and has gone 2-2 in the past four years at U.S. Bank Stadium. Each of those games was a regular-season finale, but two games will remain for each squad after this NFC North contest.

The game is presented by Minnesota Lottery.

The Week 15 Playbook cover story features Adam Thielen, who recorded his first career touchdown reception against Chicago nearly six full years ago in the 2014 regular-season finale.

Thielen has since joined the ranks of the two Hall of Fame receivers — Vikings Ring of Honor Members Cris Carter and Randy Moss — he grew up watching. Thielen's 12 touchdowns this season are tied with Carter for the eighth-most in team history. Carter and Moss are the only two players to ever record more touchdowns for Minnesota in a season. Find out Thielen's thoughts on joining elite company.
