Vikings At Bears: Kyle Rudolph Finds The End Zone

A turnover actually went the way of the Minnesota Vikings in their game against the Chicago Bears, and they took advantage of it, putting the ball into the end zone.

On the Bears' first possession of the second half, Jay Cutler looked for wide receiver Brandon Marshall, who had the ball bounce off his hands and into the hands of Vikings' cornerback Antoine Winfield. The Vikings' oldest player returned the ball down to the Chicago 40-yard line.

The Vikings took just five plays from there, with Christian Ponder and tight end Kyle Rudolph doing most of the damage. The drive concluded with Ponder and Rudolph connecting for a two-yard touchdown pass on first and goal, and the Blair Walsh extra point moved the score to 25-10 in favor of the home team.

The Bears are having all sorts of injury issues, with two offensive linemen going down for a unit that was already thin going into this afternoon's action. Can the Vikings take advantage? If they can, they might be able to climb back into this one.

With 10:36 left in the third quarter of play, the Minnesota Vikings trail the Chicago Bears by a score of 25-10.
