The Chicago Bears' 2017 season came to a merciful end on Sunday as they fell 23-10 to the Minnesota Vikings.

The Bears have missed the playoffs in 10 of the past 11 seasons and Fox recorded only three wins against NFC North teams entering Sunday's finale against the division champion Vikings.

Keenum completed 17 of his 21 passes that night for 140 yards and a touchdown, and after Harrison Smith's late interception of first-time starter Mitch Trubisky, Kai Forbath kicked a 26-yard field goal with 16 seconds left to give the Vikings a 20-17 win.

That's just who John Fox is as a coach. Fellow running back Latavius Murray stepped in for flashy rookie Dalvin Cook and had 12 carries for 31 yards before slowly taking the reins in the backfield.

The Vikings can scout the Bears all they want, but there's not doubt the Bears have a few plays that aren't on tape. "They understand the system and what their responsibility is, and they play very, very hard", coach Mike Zimmer said. "We've still got this game".

Trubisky also took a safety in the second quarter on an intentional grounding call when Danielle Hunter and Linval Joseph closed in on a sack in the end zone and he side-armed a throw between the two pass rushers. The unit led the National Football League in least points allowed and has the ability to shut down any offense, which should keep the Vikings in any game.

A barber in Madison , Wisconsin , is facing charges after a customer accused him of snipping his ear during a haircut. A 22-year-old man called the police to complain about a bad customer experience at the State Street Salon.

It marked the second time Callahan scored on the same trick play - but only the first time it counted. "I don't feel like we'd get another coach that would be better".

Keenum said 13-3 had "a nice ring to it".

Diggs became the fastest player in Vikings history to reach 200 receptions, in 40 games.

"It's a box that we checked", Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen said. Jeremiah Sirles is already replacing left guard Nick Easton, who broke his ankle in Green Bay.

Right guard Joe Berger is expected slide over to start at center, opening up the possibility of right tackle Mike Remmers shifting inside to guard and Rashod Hill starting at right tackle.

Despite the Sunday's win, there was a calm in the Vikings' locker room.
