The Vikings looked dead and buried a few weeks ago, but two victories in a row – one of those over the Packers, no less – coupled with a timely Bears collapse means they’re back in contention for the playoffs. The two meet tonight, in a game that could be more about avoiding defeat than all-out offensive brilliance. Read on as we explain how to get a Vikings vs Bears live stream and watch NFL Monday Night Football online wherever you are right now – include free Monday Night Football live streams where available.
Vikings vs Bears live stream
Tonight’s Minnesota Vikings vs Chicago Bears game kicks off at 8.15pm ET/5.15pm PT (1.15am GMT) at Soldier Field in Chicago, Illinois. Full Monday Night Football NFL live streaming and TV channel details are below, including free Monday Night Football live streams in some countries – and you can watch your preferred coverage from anywhere by adding a good VPN to your software roster.
The momentum is certainly pulling Minnesota’s way, but Chicago are something of a bogey team for Kirk Cousins. The Vikes’ QB has played three, lost three against the Bears since switching from Washington burgundy to Minnesota purple, and incredibly, he’s also never won on MNF, losing a scarcely believable nine from nine.
Chicago’s defense is in fantastic shape, but that counts for little if you’ve got no offensive game. Nick Foles sprung into life late on against the Titans, but the match was already gone by then, Chicago having failed to notch a single point in the first three quarters.
Running back Dalvin Cook has been on fire of late for the Vikings, the league’s in-form man. He’s gobbled up six TDs, 369 rushing yards and 109 receiving yards over the past two games alone, and we can’t wait to see how he gets on against this defensive unit, one of the stingiest in the league.
With both teams seemingly heading in different directions, it could be a cracker, so follow our guide for details of how to watch the Vikings vs Bears on Monday Night Football today and get an NFL live stream no matter where you are today.

How to watch the Vikings vs Bears from outside your country
If you’ve mismatched a holiday or you’re away on business and you want to watch your country’s coverage from abroad, then you’ll need to use a VPN. This will help you dial in to a location back in your home country to avoid geo-blocks and regain access to the content and services you already pay for back home.
A VPN is generally perfect for this as it allows you to change your IP address so you appear to be in a completely different location when the big game is on.

FREE Bears vs Vikings UK live stream: how to watch the NFL online tonight
Free-to-air Channel 5 has got the rights (together with Sky Sports) to broadcast Monday Night Football live in the UK.

How to watch Bears vs Vikings: live stream NFL in Australia
If you live in Australia and want to watch the NFL this season, you have several options to do so and are well covered for this week’s Bears vs Vikings game, which is scheduled to start at 12.15pm AEDT on Tuesday.
Just as Foxtel is, Kayo Sports is also a Chicago Bears vs Minnesota Vikings live stream.
The streaming service has a Basic and a Premium plan with the difference being you can watch on two devices with the Basic plan for $25 per month and on three devices with the Premium plan for $35 per month. The best news? Both plans come with a FREE 14-day trial so if you’re looking just to watch a specific game or two you can cancel after the 14 days.
However, for the proper, live-for-it NFL fans, we highly recommend you sign up for an NFL Game Pass as it is also available in Australia, and even though it is marginally more expensive you have a much wider range of features.
Should I buy an NFL Game Pass?
Watching NFL online has never been easier thanks to the wide variety of streaming services now available. However, the league also has its own streaming service called the NFL Game Pass which allows die-hard football fans to watch every game.
It’s really geared towards international fans and that’s where it’s a great option. In most of the NFL’s main international markets, a Game Pass Pro subscription will get you access to every single regular season and playoff game live, plus the Super Bowl, and you also get the league’s live highlights show, RedZone. It costs £14.99 a week or £143.99 a year, so if you’re a big fan who watches multiple games every week, it breaks down quite favourably.
As well as the UK and Ireland, the service is available in countries like Mexico, Germany and most of Europe, and Australia – with only ‘domestic markets’ the US and Canada missing out on the full-fat offering.
Instead, there’s a US and Canada-only Game Pass option available for $99 a a year that lets you watch commercial-free full game replays right after they’ve finished. Not the worst offer we’ve ever heard, but don’t get caught out – GamePass does not offer live NFL games in the US or Canada.
Should you decide to give Game Pass a shot, apps for Android and iOS mobile devices as well as on the likes of Chromecast, Apple TV, Roku, PS4, and more – plus you can obviously watch on your laptop or desktop computer through a browser.
The only caveat for non-domestic markets (e.g. the UK) are that some games are subject to blackout restrictions due to deals with local pay TV providers (e.g. Sky).
