Rudolph says that winning this game is like essentially winning two, due to the Vikings receiving a first-round bye with a victory Sunday. He also addressed the status of his ankle and says he is ready to play Sunday.

Thielen discussed this year's offense under Pat Shurmur compared to under Norv Turner. He also talked about how big of a win the first matchup against the Bears was, due to the Vikings recent struggles winning in Chicago.

Diggs also touched on the offense under Shurmur, as well as how motivating this game is to the team seeing how a first-round bye is on the line.

Kickoff Sunday against the Chicago Bears at U.S. Bank Stadium is set for noon.
