17-9 defeat against the Minnesota Vikings due was a result of penalties and blunders by the Bears.
Justin Jefferson was kept in check by Thomas Graham Jr. and the Chicago Bears.
Dalvin Cook was slowed by Robert Quinn and his team.
The sanctions, as well as the general disciplinary concerns, were just too much for them to bear.
Teez Tabor and Trevis Gipson were both penalised for 15-yard penalties on a pivotal Minnesota touchdown drive in the third quarter, part of a flag-filled Monday night for the Bears, who fell to the Vikings 17-9.
In addition to Eddie Jackson and Artie Burns, Eddie Jackson and Artie Burns were on the team’s COVID-19 reserve list. Cornerback Jaylon Johnson and safety Tashaun Gipson were also on the list.
But the defence, which was carefully monitored by coordinator Sean Desai after he passed the COVID-19 procedure in time to coach against Minnesota, held up well, limiting the high-powered Vikings to 193 yards.
Roquan Smith, a linebacker, remarked, “We certainly zoomed about, made some plays and things.”
“However, there were certain things we didn’t accomplish and other things we could improve on.”
Cook gained 89 yards on 28 attempts against the Bears after rushing for 205 yards and two touchdowns in the Vikings’ 36-28 victory over Pittsburgh on Dec. 9.
Jefferson only had four receptions for 47 yards and a score.
Kirk Cousins completed 12 of 24 passes for 87 yards, a season low.
Quinn and Akiem Hicks both recorded two sacks, while Graham had three pass breakups in his first NFL game.

However, Chicago (4-10) made a number of mistakes in its eighth defeat in nine games.
“It kills you when you don’t score in the red zone and you have mistakes and penalties,” coach Matt Nagy said.
The Bears came up empty on their opening drive of the second half, trailing 10-3 at halftime.
Cousins concluded a 12-play, 77-yard drive with a 7-yard touchdown throw to a wide-open Ihmir Smith-Marsette for the Vikings.
The Bears seemed to have stopped the Vikings twice before Smith-touchdown, Marsette’s only to be called for costly penalties each times.
First, Tabor was called for a low block on third-and-18 at the Minnesota 15 after he dove low to get to Cook.
After the Bears stopped Cook for a 2-yard loss on third down deep in Chicago territory, Trevis Gipson was flagged for unnecessary roughness.
The Bears had nine penalties for 91 yards, while the Vikings had seven for 54 yards (7-7).
Quinn said, “Some of these calls are beginning to become a bit ridiculous.”
“These referees seem to have a bit too much influence over the game….”
I mean, give the players a chance to play ball.
Half of this things wouldn’t have been termed that just a few years ago.”
In the first half, Nagy was called for unsportsmanlike behaviour after becoming enraged by a debatable unnecessary roughness penalty on safety Deon Bush, which extended a Vikings drive that concluded with Greg Joseph’s 37-yard field goal.
Nagy was warned by referee Scott Novak for using “inappropriate comments against the official.”
Novak told a pool reporter, “I won’t repeat what was stated.”
“However, when it crosses a boundary and becomes improper, we will raise a flag.”
The Bears’ next drive stalled when Teven Jenkins was called for unnecessary roughness after Smith-Marsette scored.
After the call, fellow offensive lineman German Ifedi shoved Jenkins and ordered him to the sideline in fury.
After pushing Bears quarterback Justin Fields down the sideline on an incomplete throw, Jenkins was fined for going after defensive tackle D.J. Wonnum.
“I told him I loved what he did there and I appreciate it,” Fields added, “but he has to be wise at the same time.”
“But, at the same time, I really like his attitude and how he defends me.”
