Devin Hester Continues To Be Ridiculous, Bears Lead Back To 23

Yeah. . .that "momentum" the Minnesota Vikings just had?

Forget we mentioned that.

On the ensuing kickoff after the Vikings' first touchdown of the evening, Ryan Longwell kicked a lollipop to Chicago's Devin Hester at the 2-yard line. For those of you that have been living in caves for the past few years, Devin Hester is a really, really good kickoff returner, and he showed that again. Hester made a couple of people missed, juked Longwell at the 35-yard line, and then just flew past everyone in a white uniform to score for Chicago. The extra point put the Bears' lead back to 23 at a score of 33-10.

Well, Minnesota had some momentum for about 10 seconds there. . .that's pretty good, I guess.

With a little more than nine minutes left in the third quarter, the Minnesota Vikings trail the Chicago Bears by a score of 33-10.

The Vikings are also down two offensive linemen at this point. . .center John Sullivan is out for the rest of this game with a concussion, and has been replaced by Joe Berger. Tackle Phil Loadholt is also out of the game with an undisclosed injury, and has been replaced by Patrick Brown. The Vikings only dressed seven offensive linemen this evening, so they're basically down to their last five.

Yep. . .it's not getting better.
