Keys Matchup: Bears Wide Receivers Against The Vikings Secondary

The Chicago Bears receivers haven’t done much this season to help quarterback Jay Cutler out.
The receiving core has combined for 752 yards on 57 receptions through five games this season. Johnny Knox, the third-year receiver, leads the unit with 14 receptions for 254 yards
RB Matt Forte has more than half the amount of receptions (30) and almost half the amount of receiving yards (345) than all the Bears receivers this season.

Minnesota ranks 25th in the NFL in pass defense, allowing opposing quarterbacks to throw for about 271 ypg and complete 63.8 percent of their passes. However, they’ve only allowed six touchdowns all season through the air.
Bears receivers have had some success against the Vikings in the past. Johnny Knox has eight receptions for 192
