The Packers will face the Minnesota Vikings in week 12 action on Sunday while the Chiefs have a bye.

"We're not going to change the offense if something happens". He's talented. Plays with a great swagger.

That means Chase Daniel, who has barely played in the National Football League since 2014, may take the field for the NFC North-leading Bears under the Thanksgiving spotlight.

If Green Bay has to play their third straight game without him, it could mean a loss on Sunday.

"I'm saying cautiously optimistic but I can't make any promises", Nagy said of Trubisky's chances of playing this week. "You know, there were guys open all day". The Bears were able to get out in front of the Vikings early with tough defensive play coupled with two first-half field goals and a Mitch Trubisky touchdown pass to Anthony Miller to take a 14-0 lead to halftime. With the score 20-19 in favor of Detroit, Panthers head coach "Riverboat" Ron Rivera elected to go for two and the win but Newton's conversion attempt fell incomplete as he overshot his receiver coming across the middle. We'll provide all the statistics, insights and analysis you need to set your lineups for this week's contests.

For now, the task at hand is getting ready to strap it up with only three days to recover, instead of six. Cousins struck for two touchdowns and went 30-of-46 for 262 yards passing with two picks but was under severe duress all night long while the Vikings' ground attack amounted to nothing more than a whimper, garnering 22 rushing yards when the dust settled. "We've just got to [go] out on Thursday with clean execution and hopefully be well-rested". Because he really wants to [play], but we have to be smart with him, and he has to understand that.

But overall, coach Matt Nagy handled Trubisky's absence particularly well on a short week and on the road against a division rival. Fortunately for the Bears, Nagy believes they didn't utilize everything they had in the game plan. For us, let's just control what we can control. The home crowd should play a big factor in this game and Minnesota should be hungry to put that loss last week in the past and move ahead with their playoff window looking tough and a rough schedule ahead.

Unlike Ryan Wilson (who once again picked both teams), I'll pick one team to win: the Vikings.

Game time will come even quicker for the Bears than for the Lions - about 7½ hours quicker.

McGahn reportedly told Trump that taking that action would be an impeachable offense, a sentiment that Dershowitz did not share.
