The Vikings host the Chicago Bears Sunday at noon, pregame on WJON at 11am.  Minnesota is 6-6 while Chicago is 8-4.  The Vikings are 1 game back of Seattle and 2 games back of Chicago for the NFC Wildcard spots.  Minnesota may need to win all of their remaining 4 games to put themselves in position to make the playoffs.

Viking defensive end Jared Allen said earlier this week that winning their remaining 4 games is doable.  The Bears will play Sunday without middle linebacker Brian Urlacher while the Vikings will play without receiver Percy Harvin.  Harvin is out for the season after being placed on injured reserve with a torn ligament and sprained left ankle.
