The Bears 2011 season is either about to become unstable, fail to achieve fusion power and burn away into a cool brown dwarf, or mysteriously solidify, grow into a freakish runaway force and supernova all over the NFC.

The Vikings sideshow rolls into town for a Sunday night football game. Exposed last season, Minnesota sent coach Brad Childress packing, and parted ways with old-man Brett Favre, only to pick up slightly-younger-old-man Donovan McNabb as the replacement at quarterback. They picked up their first win last week against the hapless Arizona Cardinals, and will try to use this as a spark.
