They’ve got their quarterback. Now they’re trying to get a win.
The Bears hold a seven-point lead over the Vikings at Soldier Field in the second quarter.
A 40-yard field goal from Blair Walsh following a first-snap fumble by Matt Forte gave Minnesota an early three-point margin. But the Bears have since scored a touchdown and a field goal, thwarting a Vikings drive deep into Chicago territory and then blocking a 30-yard try by Walsh.
Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has looked like his old self, in every way. In addition to throwing the ball effectively, he drew an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty by flipping the ball after the play at a Vikings defender.
