The Vikings moved the ball well, with rookie Toby Gerhart getting the majority of the work and looking very good in doing so, but Brett Favre was called for a questionable intentional grounding on a third down play. On the next snap, Ryan Longwell. . .who’s usually automatic. . .smacked one off of the left upright on a 39-yard field goal attempt, and the Vikings gave the ball back to the Bears.
With a little less than 11 minutes left until halftime, the Vikings still have a 3-0 lead over the Bears.
