24. Chicago Bears
The offense didn’t do anything spectacular on Sunday, but they didn’t have to. The defense was able to carry things for the Chicago Bears as they made life miserable on Mike Glennon, their former quarterback.
Glennon had just 24 yards passing on 4-of-11 completions with four turnovers. He also lost 34 yards on four sacks, giving the team negative-10 yards passing on the day. Robert Quinn was able to record one of those sacks, giving him 18 on the year which is a franchise record.
Having said all that, they’re still just 6-10 and this could have been the final home game for Matt Nagy who has been on the hot seat all season. If it is, he did at least go out with a bang.
23. Minnesota Vikings
It’s officially going to be a losing season for the Minnesota Vikings as they lost to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football to fall to 7-8. With Kirk Cousins out due to COVID, the Vikings turned to Sean Mannion and he wasn’t able to keep pace with Aaron Rodgers and the Packers who rode a 17-point second quarter to an easy win.
Minnesota now has a lot to figure out. It’s been no secret that Mike Zimmer has been on the hot seat and they also could be on the fence with Cousins as their starter.
Perhaps they roll with both again in 2022 but there could be some big changes coming.
