NFL: Minnesota Vikings at Philadelphia Eagles James Lang-USA TODAY Sports

Sammy Sleeves in prime time again!

Bradford and the Vikings will be looking for a bounce-back effort after their Week 7 loss to the Eagles. Minnesota is still 5-1 and in the driver’s seat in the NFC North, but after looking far more fallible against Philadelphia than in previous weeks, the Vikings have a little bit to prove on Monday night.

Playing against a pretty woeful Bears team should provide them with such a spark. Chicago is 1-6 this season, which, yeah, that’s bad. Jay Cutler is coming back into the starting lineup, but that doesn’t change the team’s porous defense, or general lack of offensive direction.

Here’s what you need to know if you want to watch this sports contest:
