Bears Maul Vikings 28-10
The Minnesota Vikings got on the board first with a first quarter field goal from rookie kicker Blair Walsh, but after that, it was ALL Chicago Bears as the Bears ran their record to 8-3 with a 28-10 win over the Vikings Sunday afternoon.
The vaunted Bears defense got three more turnovers (2 fumbles and an interception) and running back Michael Bush had two 1-yard touchdown runs as the Bears dominated the Vikings, who fell to 6-5 on the season.
NFL rushing leader Adrian Peterson ran for 108 yards, but quarterback Christian Ponder completed only 22 of 43 passes for 159 yards and one score, to tight end Kyle Rudolph.
It doesn’t get any easier for the Vikings as they travel to Lambeau Field to face the Green Bay Packers at noon next Sunday. The Bears will host the Seattle Seahawks Sunday afternoon/
