MINNEAPOLIS – The Chicago Bears hope to snap a late-season losing streak Sunday when they face the Vikings in Minnesota.

The Bears (5-8) are winless in December after back-to-back home losses to San Francisco and Washington. The Vikings (8-5) are currently dueling for a playoff spot, while the Bears all but eliminated themselves from postseason contention last week.

Wide receiver Alshon Jeffery (calf) and tight end Zach Miller (fractured rib) are both active for Sunday’s game.

Linebacker Pernell McPhee (knee) is also expected to play.

The Bears have three games remaining on their schedule: the Vikings, Buccaneers and Lions.

Kickoff for Sunday’s game is at noon central.
