The Chicago Bears have battled back against the Minnesota Vikings, and now find themselves trailing by just a field goal.
On their first possession after the Vikings' touchdown, the Bears made their way downfield, sparked by a huge 28-yard run by quarterback Josh McCown on a 3rd-and-8 when it looked like the Vikings had him dead to rights. That allowed the Bears to keep the ball, and they eventually finished the 91-yard drive with a 22-yard pass from McCown to Roy Williams for a touchdown to make it 10-7.
On the drive, Jared Allen split a sack of McCown with Erin Henderson, meaning that he now has 19 on the season, which is two behind Chris Doleman's team record of 21 set in 1986, and 3.5 behind Michael Strahan's NFL record of 22.5.
With about fourteen minutes left in the second quarter at the Metrodome, the Minnesota Vikings lead the Chicago Bears by a score of 10-7.
