Phil's Forecast

What's this?

Weather: Partly Cloudy, Mid 50's, Winds 12-15 mph - Halloween Night in the Windy City as the Vikings look to get back on track following a dismal performance on the road a week ago in Philly. The Bears return on extended rest as their last matchup came on the road the previous Thursday against the Packers. With Jay Cutler returning into the starting lineup for an injured Brian Hoyer and the Bears' recent home struggles where they've dropped 12 of their L/14, I see no reason to go against my computer's forecast in this one.
