And right before the half, the Vikings listened to reason and replaced him with Case Keenum.

Kickoff between the Bears and Vikings comes at 7:30 CT from Chicago. The Bears sit in last place in the NFC North but have had plenty of time to prepare after their 35-14 loss at Green Bay on 28 September. Bears rookie quarterback, Mitchell Trubisky will make his National Football League debut stepping in for the struggling veteran, Mike Glennon. The Vikings also lost their top rusher in Dalvin Cook to an ACL tear last week. Ray Brewer won back-to-back titles in the 2015-2016 and 2016-17 seasons, after Taylor Bern prevailed in 2014-2015. Veteran Latavius Murray and fourth-year Jerick McKinnon will share their work in the backfield.

Chicago Bears outside linebacker Leonard Floyd (94) tackles Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford (8) for safety during the first half of an NFL football game, Monday, Oct. 9, 2017, in Chicago. Bradford has not played since a dominant performance of week 1 in a Monday night win over the Saints while Keenum is 1-2 as a starter in his absence.

We should expect a close game between a strong defensive team in Minnesota and a hungry and healthy Chicago team led by rookie hopeful, Mike Trubisky. He'll have the headset in his helmet as the Bears will be without Danny Trevathan for the game, and he'll be tasked with figuring out where to align the defense against a well-rounded Minnesota squad.
