CHICAGO – Thankfully, the Chicago Bears’ season has come to an end.

The Bears came up short for the tenth straight week, this time losing to the Minnesota Vikings 29-13.

Coming into the game, most Bears fans had little expected Chicago to challenge the NFC North-leading Vikings as their defense struggled for most of the season to stop opposing attacks and the shining star of the Bears on offense – quarterback Justin Fields – was pulled out for the season finale with a hip injury.

Nathan Peterman and Tim Boyle stepped in to fill Field’s absence but had only moderate success at best.

Peterman ended Day 11-19 for 114 yards and a TD through the air – an 11-yard punch to Cole Kmet on the Bears’ opening drive in the second half – and played idle football under the middle.

Boyle finished the day at 2/8 for 33 yards and 2 INTs but was able to help lead Chicago’s offense to a result at 1:26 in the second quarter via a 42-yard scamper from wide receiver Velus Jones Jr. in a misleading end-around sweep.

The defensive unit continued to struggle as a whole, giving up 482 yards and 28 first downs to Minnesota, resulting in a one-sided possession advantage for the Vikings, 36:36 – 23:24.

The lone bright spot on defense for the Bears came in the turnover department, like Harrison hand a fumble forced Dalvin Koch that was restored from joe thomas at the 4:12 mark in the first quarter, and Greg Stroman Jr. picked out Minnesota backup QB Nick Mullens with 9:18 remaining in fourth place.

While all may have been murky and ominous on the field for Chicago, off the field there was a silver lining. The Houston Texans beat the Indianapolis Colts 32-31meaning the Bears are now the No. 1 overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft, the first time they’ve been the No. 1 pick in over 75 years.

With the Chicago season now over, Minnesota is waiting for the end of week 18 to see who they’ll compete with next week’s NFL Wildcard Weekend.
