Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs (14) sought solace after the loss to Chicago.

It began with tantalizing possibilities, after a team coming off an NFC Championship Game appearance paid $84 million for quarterback Kirk Cousins and added defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson the next day.

It ended with 164 yards of total offense, a heated exchange between Cousins and his top target, and a 16-play, 75-yard drive where a Bears team - at that point with little chance at a first-round bye - exerted its will over the Vikings' vaunted defense.
