Vikings At Bears: Chicago Cashes In Another Turnover

It was pretty ugly for both the Minnesota Vikings and the Chicago Bears to start things out at Soldier Field this afternoon. Now, it's only ugly for one team. . .and, unfortunately for us, it's the Minnesota Vikings.

Christian Ponder threw a pass intended for Devin Aromashodu well over the receiver's head, and it was intercepted by Bears' safety Chris Conte and returned to the Minnesota 13-yard line. Jay Cutler wasted no time, finding former Minnesota Golden Gopher Matt Spaeth along the left sideline for a 13-yard touchdown pass, with the extra point giving Chicago a 25-3 lead over the Vikings.

Minnesota has been simply getting killed on both sides of the football in this game. Their offense can't stay on the field, and their defense can't get off of it. Those two things tend to be a pretty bad combination, and this afternoon is no exception.

We have about a minute and a half remaining in the first half of play at Soldier Field, and the Chicago Bears have turned this one into a rout, leading the Minnesota Vikings by a score of 25-3.
