Bears at Vikings

At TCF Bank Stadium, University of Minnesota,

8:30 p.m., ESPN

Line: Bears by 71/2

The skinny: The Vikings (5-9) visit the Eagles on Sunday at 8:20 p.m. The Metrodome roof caved in

on Dec. 12, forcing an emergency relocation of this game to this open-air location a few miles away. The Bears (9-4) have an opportunity to clinch the NFC North and take another step toward an opening-round bye for the playoffs. The Vikings are leaning toward starting rookie Joe Webb at quarterback, with Brett Favre's shoulder still hurting and Tarvaris Jackson done for the season because of a foot injury. Their only other option at quarterback is Patrick Ramsey, a nine-year veteran who signed just last week. The forecast is calling for a temperature in the low teens with the possibility of a few inches of snow.
