08:03 AM ET 11.26 | An encouraging win on Sunday for Chicago did not come without discouraging news. The Bears will have to wait until Monday to find out just how big of a price they paid. Five starters left the game and did not return -- running back Matt Forte (ankle), cornerback Charles Tillman (ankle), wide receiver/kick returner Devin Hester (concussion) and guards Lance Louis (knee sprain) and Chris Spencer (knee sprain). Louis' injury occurred under particularly unfortunate circumstances. He was blindsided by an aggressive block by Vikings' defensive end Jared Allen during an interception off a deflected pass in the third quarter. Louis is scheduled to undergo an MRI exam Monday. "I thought it was a legal hit," Allen said.

The Vikings made this game so boring, Fox switched to Atlanta vs Falcons in the 2nd quarter.

I thought the holidays would give the cowboy fans ample time to mourn....

They STILL haven't shown up to work!

Yes. It. Was.

Need Tillman back bad! Bears can get 3 yards a carry from Bush and Hester hasn't done anything on kick returns this year.

Even funnier is the AFC is so bad this year.. they're still in the playoff hunt....

Too bad. Now I'm forced to revise my estimate, Bears by only 17 over the Pack.

November 26, 2012  12:01 PM ET

Forte sure hasn't been complaining about his contract lately. Hasn't done much

Yes, but they enjoyed it so it is okay. Not as much as I enjoyed Thursday, though.
