Needing to keep pace with the Detroit Lions in the NFC North with a win on Sunday, the Chicago Bears instead endured a tough 23-20 loss to the Minnesota Vikings in overtime.

Robbie Gould had a chance to seal the victory for the Bears in overtime but missed a 47-yard field goal on second down with 4:12 left in overtime. Adrian Peterson helped march the ball down the field for the Vikings, which allowed Blair Walsh to hit the game-winning field goal from 34 yards out.

A win by the Lions on Thanksgiving Day did not do the Bears any favors in the NFC North, and considering how strong the Wild Card chase is in the NFC, they will face an uphill battle in their remaining four games.

Here are my five takeaways from the Bears' 23-20 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.
