Limbeck: It's bye, bye Vikings in the first round

The Bears simply can not keep Vikings defenders at bay, culminating in a safety of Mitchell Trubisky, who tried getting rid of the ball in the face of a relentless pass rush.

The Vikings haven't allowed the fewest yards in a season since 1993 or the fewest points in a season since 1971.

A win over Chicago would have them locked into the second seed where they would get a first-round bye while a loss puts them in danger of dropping to third and having to play on Wild Card Weekend.

As long as this defense that entered the final regular-season game with the fewest points and yards allowed in the National Football League this season is intact, the Vikings will be all the more likely to stick around.

Deputy Buglione explained the homeowners brough chili and corn muffins to the deputies and Secret Service agents posted. Rumors swirled around that Pence was an advocate of conversion therapy but this was denied by his spokesman.

Stefon Diggs caught six passes for 65 yards and a touchdown from Case Keenum for the Vikings (13-3), who reached 13 wins for only the second time in the history of the 57-year-old franchise after holding a second straight opponent without an offensive touchdown.

"We ended on a good note", Vikings defensive tackle Joseph Linval said. "Teams obviously know what we do and do well, that's why we have to go back to work this next week and refine the things that we've done and make sure we take a good look at ourselves as an offense and how we can attack this postseason run". "This place is crazy-hard for people to play".

In what could have been the final game for coach John Fox, who's 14-34 in three seasons, the Bears didn't cross midfield until the fourth quarter and totaled only 30 yards rushing.

"They're awesome", Keenum said of the defense.

Experts predict a bad flu season for Texas
Overnight, the Center for Disease Control reported 23 states, including the Carolinas, have widespread flu activity. Individuals with weak immune systems and healthy individuals are equally likely to catch the flu virus.

Multiple outlets reported general manager Ryan Pace was expected to be retained - he was hired shortly after Fox arrived - and lead the search for a new coach.

The Bears are 5-10 entering Sunday's contest against the Vikings and are last in the NFC North. "I don't feel like we'd get another coach that would be better". He had one reception for 1 yard in the game.

"It's a box that we checked", Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen said. That leaves that starting right guard spot up for grabs.

Despite the Sunday's win, there was a calm in the Vikings' locker room.
