The Chicago Bears couldn’t convert a turnover into points at the end of the first half. . .but at the start of the second half, the Vikings couldn’t dodge another bullet.
Brett Favre was intercepted on a deflected screen pass intended for Percy Harvin, and the Bears started out inside the Minnesota 10-yard line. However, the Viking defense responded, and forced the Bears to settle for a 34-yard field goal by Robbie Gould to make the score 17-10.
Minnesota will now get the ball back, going with the Soldier Field winds this time, with 13:12 left in the third quarter of play.
