The Bears forced a punt from the Vikings after center John Sullivan had another bad snap out of the shotgun formation that went over the head of Brett Favre. After a couple of penalties on the Bears made it first and 30, the inexplicable happened.
Jay Cutler dropped back to pass, and found Johnny Knox from 67 yards out. I have no idea how he got the ball there, largely because I have no idea what in the heck Madieu Williams was doing on the play. Of course, I’ve said that a lot of times about Madieu this year.
Any early momentum the Vikings had is gone, and the Bears now have a 10-7 lead with 1:55 left in the first quarter.
