Vikings Coach Zimmer Previews Sunday's Game vs. 1st Place Bears

The addition of edge rusher Khalil Mack (coming over in a trade from Oakland) solidified this unit as one of the best in the National Football League and certainly one that the Vikings offensive line needs to be wary of. "I think that's part of it". "He's really, essentially, a rookie in this system, as is most of our offense with a first-year offense". Pretty big game-NBC thinks so, as they flexed it to SNF.

"You got to respect him". The quarterback has surpassed his passing yardage from 2017, when he started 12 games. Specifically: Miller easily beat a blown coverage for a touchdown, but what Trubisky did to get him the ball translates against any defense.

"There's other times he looks like Fran Tarkenton scrambling". They're obviously using him in a bunch of different ways. As the games' coming up, it starts to bubble a little bit. Field position will be critical given for the Bears given the strength of the Vikings defense.

On the other hand, the best way to slow a pressure defense is to run the ball straight ahead between the tackles, and while the Bears are now No. 2 in the league against the run and the Vikings are No. 3, Minnesota's ground game with its backs is much better than the Bears' has been to date. FS Harrison Smith, who has four interceptions and six passes defended in 10 career games against Bears, is only player in league since 2016 with at least three interceptions and three sacks in same season. Trubisky has 15 touchdowns in five home games and four touchdown passes in four road games.

"This is how we envisioned the turnaround happening", Trubisky said. "He's a really good all-around player". That was a very, very good defense a year ago.

Diggs provided an update on his status on Thursday. "I could have possibly made the situation better". "On a personal note, I'd just like to make sure that I take this opportunity to thank and show appreciation to all the service branches, their support groups, along with the families and members of our military service that have and continue to sacrifice everything for us".

"I would have had to". That's hard. I don't know when the last time is that's been done. "I can't miss anything like that". "But you can never get too high and you can never get too low".

Instead, he was an observer, watching Chicago complete eight passes of 20-plus yards. All this is to say: One of these two teams will get their best win of 2018 on Sunday night.

Anderson defeated Nishikori in the Final tournament ATP
Anderson served down 10 aces during his victory, winning the first 11 games before Nishikori got on the scoreboard. The 28-year-old leads their head-to-head 3-1 and thumped him 6-3 6-1 in Vienna just a couple of weeks ago.

Zverev inflicts more ATP Finals pain on Cilic
Not just an Isner win will carry the Serb to the semi-finals but a Cilic win in three sets would do the same. Djokovic saved it with a service victor but then double-faulted to give the 21-year-old another opportunity.

IDF Shoots Gaza 'Fisherman' Refusing to Back Away from Israel's Border
They voiced readiness to abide by the truce as long as Tel Aviv does the same. "I can not elaborate on our plans for the future". Israel maintains many of those hurt and killed on the fence are in fact militants masquerading as peaceful demonstrators.

Both teams were fighting for a wild card spot. The two teams know how important this showdown is. We've already been through our game plan as a staff as to how we're going to handle the post-game practices and meetings [after the Vikings game] and that sort of thing.

AP PRO32 RANKING - Vikings No. 7, Bears No. 10.

That could mean an expanded role for Conklin, who was a fifth-round pick in the spring out of Central Michigan.

"I think just good feet, good eyes and I just played with conviction", Trubisky said.

"Their team speed is much better now", Zimmer said.

The matchup: Adam Thielen can play both inside and outside, but has played the majority of his 586 snaps from the slot (53 percent). He threw for a combined 570 yards, two touchdowns, an interception and had a 104 passer rating. Offenses can only hope to minimize the effect he has on the game.

"If you're not enjoying the moment, then why are you playing?"

"Just kind of learning the offense more and more has really helped me out", Conklin added. Watershed in that the victor flows onward with a better chance of winning the division and the loser just flows off into some meaningless tributary, out of contention, out of the playoffs and out of relevance. According to defensive end Everson Griffen, they are both good at getting to the edges and making some big plays.
