It is not very often that you would describe a game with 165 yards in total penalties, 4 turnovers and 1 offensive touchdown as a great game.

There were plenty of mistakes...

  • Grossman - 71.7% completion, 5 TDs to 1 INT and a league leading 128.7 QB passer rating coming into the game. 56% completion, 1 TD to 2 INTs and several other bad throws during his 3rd game.
  • Bears D - several missed tackles in critical situations.
  • Bears penalties - 10 which equaled their season total in 2 games.
  • Sharper - dropped INT that would have been 6 points.
  • Taylor - fumble on 3rd down in 4 qtr (not entirely his fault, but nonetheless)
  • Brad - on 4th and 2 decided to go deep
  • Williamson - dropped a huge pass on final drive
But in the end the Bears made the necessary plays to win the game.
  • Tommy Harris with a great bull rush that caused a huge fumble in the 4th. Giving the Bears the ball at the Viking 37 instead of the Vikings punting on the next play.
  • Grossman with clutch TD pass on 2nd and 10 to put the Bears up for good
This was an entertaining game. I hope the Vikings can take away from this game that there is not a big gap between the Bears and themselves. This game was a 1 play game and we are right there.

16-0 is no longer possible, but 15-1 is still out there! Lets go to Buffalo!
