During the first two games of the season, Mitch Trubisky hadn't thrown a single touchdown pass, and it continued deep into the second quarter of their Week 3 matchup against the Washington Redskins.

Smith has been a constant presence on the Bears defense this season, and he was off to an excellent start. He previewed how the Vikings should approach the game in Chicago Sunday.

The Vikings return to the not-so-friendly confines of Soldier Field on Sunday to face the Chicago Bears, who dethroned them as NFC North champions previous year thanks to a formidable defense that looks just as intimidating. Two impressive defences face a pair of overmatched offences, look for a low scoring game decided by the finest of margins. He caught 52 passes for 569 yards and 10 touchdowns last season, including the acrobatic, highlight-reel catch below that he hauled in with one hand.
