Minnesota Vikings 10, Chicago Bears 7 - Quick Strike Gives Vikings The Lead

The Vikings held the Bears to a three and out on defense, and took the good field position that came from the ensuing punt and turned it into their longest pass play of the year.

Favre took the snap on the first play from scrimmage, stepped up to avoid the pass rush, and fired a great strike to a wide open Percy Harvin for a 53-yard touchdown pass, marking the Vikings’ longest pass play of the season.

With three minutes left until halftime, the Vikings have a 10-7 lead over the Bears at Soldier Field.
