Chicago Bears 20, Minnesota Vikings 13 - Stop Kicking To Devin Hester, Please?

After the Vikings managed to get a score to pull themselves closer, the Bears did what the Bears do when they play the Vikings. . .get a big play on special teams.

Devin Hester took Ryan Longwell’s kickoff from a couple yards deep in the end zone and returned it to about the Minnesota 30-yard line. From there, the Bears were able to drive deep enough to give Robbie Gould an attempt at a 37-yard field goal, which he converted.

With 5:26 left in the third quarter, the Vikings now trail the Bears by seven points, 20-13.
