Chicago Bears 7, Minnesota Vikings 3 - Bears Turn Missed Field Goal Into Points

The Bears took the missed field goal by Ryan Longwell and put together a pretty impressive drive to take the lead in the second quarter against the Vikings.

The Vikings had a couple of opportunities to get the Bears off the field on third downs, but Cutler managed to find Johnny Knox on two separate occasions to keep the Bear drive alive. Then, after having a touchdown taken away because of a holding penalty on the previous play, Greg Olsen reeled in a 17-yard pass from Jay Cutler for the score to give the Bears a lead.

With 6:57 remaining until halftime, the Vikings trail the Bears by a score of 7-3.
