Vikings meet Bears for division lead

While Minnesota and Chicago are plenty familiar with each other from playing twice a year, the first matchup of the season between the NFC North teams brings more intrigue than usual.

The Bears (6-3) are a different team after making some big changes in the offseason that appear to be paying off. They're leading in the division, just ahead of the Vikings (5-3-1), which means this game is for first place.

Matt Nagy was hired to be Chicago's head coach after five seasons in Kansas City, most recently as the offensive coordinator. Receivers Allen Robinson II and Taylor Gabriel, and tight end Trey Burton were signed in free agency. Receiver Anthony Miller was a second-round draft pick to continue the offensive alterations.
