Struggling NFC North rivals get primetime tilt

Why to watch
Dare I call it a must-win for the Bears? An 0-3 divisional start would be tough to overcome, especially with Detroit and Green Bay soaring. Adrian Peterson comes in off his first signature game of the season, with those three early TDs. Can Donovan McNabb hold off calls for rookie Christian Ponder to take over soon?

Inside story
The Vikings can still get after the passer, and the Bears' offensive line remains a concern. Jared Allen loves the big stage and Sunday night could be right up his alley. It seems like Devin Hester takes one to the house whenever he is in primetime as well (five return touchdowns in six Monday night games).
