NFC North Preview: Can the Vikings challenge the Bears?

Two years ago the Minnesota Vikings were NFC North champs at 13-3 and they played in the NFC Championship game, losing to the eventual Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles. Before the 2018 season started they were favored to repeat as division champs behind their fantastic defense and their brand new $84 million quarterback, Kirk Cousins, and they were thought to be a legit Super Bowl contender.

That never materialized as they played inconsistent football all year long.

The Vikes regressed down to an 8-7-1 record in 2018 and they blew a shot at the playoffs when they lost a week 17 game to the Chicago Bears in Minnesota.
