Vikings (5-1) at Bears (1-6)
7:30 p.m. Monday, ESPN
Line: Vikings by 4
Minnesota looks to regain its footing after being completely outmatched in Philadelphia. Last week, injuries on the offensive line caught up to the Vikings as they scored just 10 points and gave up six sacks. Sam Bradford is coming off a three-turnover performance after having none in his first four games. Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler has been cleared to return to action just in time. Brian Hoyer, who came on in relief of an injured Cutler in Week 2, is out for the season after breaking his left forearm last week against the Packers. The next nine games are likely an audition process for Cutler, who is far too pricey to have a 68-70 record as a starter.
