Minnesota Vikings 3, Chicago Bears 0 - Vikings Fail To Capitalize On Cutler Interception

The Vikings forced Chicago Bears’ quarterback Jay Cutler into an interception, but couldn’t do anything with it.

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.
