Chicago enters the game undefeated after scoring 14 unanswered points late to stun the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. Most importantly, Jay Cutler looked good without having to run for his life all day, making one wonder if Marc Trestman really is the man for the job.
Minnesota on the other hand lost its season opener to the Detroit Lions. Adrian Peterson scored on a 78-yard touchdown run the first time he touched the ball, but then only gained 15 yards on 17 carries the rest of the way. If the Vikings have playoff aspirations, starting 0-2 in the division isn't a way to reach them.
Over at CBS Sports, John Breech is taking the Bears to continue their nice start with a 24-17 victory. Every other CBS analyst also picks Chicago at home, though three believe the Vikings will cover the 6.5-point spread.
