Vikings Seek First Win

NFC North rivals meet up Sunday at Soldier Field as the Vikings go up against the Chicago Bears.  The Vikings will try to avoid an 0-and-2 start in the division after dropping a 34-24 decision at Detroit in Week One.  The Bears rallied from a 21-10 deficit to beat the Bengals 24-21 in their home opener.  The teams split their two meetings last year with each team winning at home.
