Bradford likely to start for Vikings tonight

On Monday night, Mitchell Trubisky made his debut as Chicago's starting quarterback in a move the Bears organization (and fans) hoped would help kickstart their dismal offense. The Bears started the season out with Mike Glennon, but the turnover-prone QB was ditched after a dismal start to the season.

Chicago is 1-3 with the lone win coming against Pittsburgh in an overtime game in Week 3. They will be likely be depending passes from Sam Bradford, the Vikings quarterback who was ruled active as he recovers from a knee injury.

Tonight's game kicks-off at 5:30pm from Soldier Field in Chicago. Here are our three keys to victory for the Bears on Monday night. Rookie runner Dalvin Cook missed the season for a ripped ACL.

While Minnesota lost one impact player, it will see the return of another as Michael Floyd has served his four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.

Flash flooding is also possible, as some areas in northeast Alabama could receive up to six inches of rain as well. It slammed some MS and Alabama communities with a storm surge of between 4-5 feet, according to ABC News .

Minnesota Vikings cornerback Trae Waynes (26) tackles Chicago Bears running back Jordan Howard (24) during the first half of an NFL football game, Monday, Oct. 9, 2017, in Chicago.

Case Keenum was able to drive down field on the Vikings' first drive of the quarter for a touchdown, and the second time the road team got the ball, it went for the same result.

Bradford's return is good news for the Vikings' passing game overall, and particularly tight end Kyle Rudolph.

But the Vikings don't play well in Chicago for some reason, including on Halloween night a year ago in a Monday night game.
