Fox expects to be fired by Bears

Every step along the way, the Minnesota Vikings hit the goals they set during the 2017 regular season.

Vikings running back Latavius Murray had a pair of touchdowns, while quarterback Case Keenum was 21 of 29 for 189 yards and one touchdown. Since the start of the 2016 season, Murray has 20 rushing touchdowns, which ranks second in the National Football League behind Dallas' Ezekiel Elliott (22). He also gave up a safety.

The Vikings finished 12-2 four times with a 14-game schedule (1969, 1970, 1973 and 1975), but the only other time they've topped 12 victories was their 15-1 record in 1998. The Vikings increased their lead to 16-7 when Mitchell Trubisky was penalized for intentional grounding in the end zone while under heavy pressure from defensive tackle Linval Joseph. It was one of seven penalties for 91 yards whistled against Chicago in the first half, compared to just 53 yards of offense.

Their first drive deep into Vikings territory stalled at the six-yard line, and Xavier Rhodes - who'd needed to walk off a minor injury earlier in the series - followed Dontrelle Inman across the field on fourth down, breaking up a strong throw from Mitch Trubisky and denying the Bears a touchdown on a crossing route. The Vikings beat Dallas at home and then lost at New Orleans in overtime of the NFC Championship Game.

Bears: Two starting offensive linemen, LT Bobby Massie and RG Josh Sitton, did not suit up.

In what could have been the final game for coach John Fox, who's 14-34 in three seasons, the Bears didn't cross midfield until the fourth quarter and totalled only 30 yards rushing. His first season in Chicago was his best, with a 6-10 record.

As Ryan Quigley lined up to punt in the second quarter, the Bears put Tarik Cohen back to return the kick, but stashed Bryce Callahan along the left sideline. He had one reception for 1 yard in the game.
