Vikings At Bears: Chicago Tacks On A Field Goal

There was a bit of a crazy situation at Soldier Field that appeared to help the Minnesota Vikings back into their game against the Chicago Bears, but after the smoke cleared, the Bears had increased their lead to 18-points.

On a play near midfield, the Bears handed the ball to Matt Forte, who appeared to be tackled at the Minnesota 49-yard line. Then, Vikings safety Mistral Raymond was running with the ball towards the end zone, not being pursued by anyone in a dark blue jersey. After some confusion, the referees ruled that Raymond had scored a touchdown.

Then, referee Scott Green said that the call of a touchdown on the field had been confirmed. And it appeared that the Vikings had cut the lead to 25-16, extra point pending.

Then the officials said they were reviewing the play, and after the review, the referees determined that Forte was down before the football came out, and that the Bears would keep the ball, wiping the touchdown off of the board.

The Bears took advantage of keeping the ball by putting another Robbie Gould field goal on the board, this one from 46 yards out, to make the score 28-10 in favor of Chicago.

That's where we stand with 3:57 left in the third quarter of play at Soldier Field.
