Bears At Vikings Score Update: Charles Tillman Gets A Pick-Six To Put Chicago Ahead

That early momentum the Minnesota Vikings had against the Chicago Bears? Yeah, it's pretty much gone.

The Vikings' most recent drive lasted two plays. The first one was a five-yard loss by Toby Gerhart on an attempted run to the right. The second one was a pass by Christian Ponder that was intended for Gerhart, but bounced off of his hands and right into the waiting arms of Bears' cornerback Charles Tillman. Tillman knew what to do with it from there, as he scampered 22 yards into the end zone for a touchdown, and what had been a 10-0 Minnesota lead has quickly turned into a 14-10 advantage for the visiting team.

The interception for Ponder was his 13th on the season, to go along with 13 touchdown passes for the rookie.

With a little more than thirteen minutes left at the Metrodome, the Minnesota Vikings now trail the Chicago Bears by a score of 14-10.
