Bears likely ousting John Fox at end of season, report says

The Bears have missed the playoffs in 10 of the past 11 seasons and Fox recorded only three wins against NFC North teams entering Sunday's finale against the division champion Vikings.

The Bears failed to capitalize on the momentum, however.

The Bears (5-10) took advantage of the winless Cleveland Browns to win 20-3.

The Vikings can scout the Bears all they want, but there's not doubt the Bears have a few plays that aren't on tape.

The only question heading into the last game of the year against the Chicago Bears is where the Vikings would be seeded in the NFL.

Murray has rather quietly been one of their most productive players down the stretch, helping the Vikings move the chains and work the clock while the defense holds the lead.

And the controlled development of Mitchell Trubisky, which fit with Fox's conservative coaching style, likely didn't help his chances to return. The 7-play, 70-yard drive was highlighted by Case Keenum's 26-yard pass to Stefon Diggs.

On a fourth-and-nine punt by the Vikings' Ryan Quigley, Cohen faked receiving the punt - drawing Vikings' defenders toward him - when the ball in fact was going toward Callahan on the other side of the field. Randy Moss and Cris Carter are the only ones ahead on either list. Mike Remmers moved from right tackle into Berger's spot.
