Chicago Bears 14, Minnesota Vikings 10 - Vikings Avoid Disaster Going Into Halftime

The Vikings were trying to put something together going into the locker room at halftime, but they almost turned it into points for Chicago instead.

Brett Favre was scrambling on a third down play in Minnesota territory, and it looked like he was going to take a sack or go down for a minimal gain, but the ball was stripped away by a Bear defender and recovered by Chicago.

The Bears got into position for a field goal, but Chicago kicker Robbie Gould, much like Ryan Longwell earlier, couldn’t master the tricky winds this afternoon at Soldier Field and pushed his attempt wide to the left.

So, as we go into the locker room at halftime, the Bears still lead the Vikings by a score of 14-10. Minnesota will get the ball first coming out of the locker room at halftime.
