The rout is on in Chicago

Christian Ponder AP

The Bears are well on their way to turning things around.  The Vikings are well on their way to the first step of a late-season collapse.

A Christian Ponder interception, coming with the Vikings already down 15, has been parlayed into a touchdown pass from Jay Cutler to tight end Matt Spaeth, pushing the margin to 25-3.

The Vikings don’t have the kind of offense to dig out of a 22-point margin.  If anything, they’ll press in an effort to pass their way into contention, and things could get worse.

It gets no better next week, when the Vikings go to Lambeau Field.  The following week, the Bears roll in to the Metrodome.

In other words, 6-4 could soon be 6-7.

    Some poor officiating. Missed a hold on Jared Allen by Webb that should have been a sack but ended up as a touchdown. Brandon Marshall stiff arming Antoine Winfield in the end zone and Winfield gets called for a pass interference. Two big plays that completely shift momentum. Bears are dirty.

    This is just great. Fox switches to the Atlanta game and its blacked out on the nfl ticket channel so I have no way to watch the 2nd half despite paying for the Sunday ticket

    AP has 25 yards thus far, and Cutler has only been sacked once while completing 17 of 20 with a TD and no picks…Vikes fans’ trash talk leading up to this game was pure fantasy.

    Great win for the Bears, great whining by Vikes fans.

    And look, we beat a winning team, even if they won’t be one for long.

    “Bears going nowhere,,,enjoy your regular season”

    What you call ‘nowhere’ real NFL teams call the playoffs…Shame you’re not going there with us.

    There should be no surprise that the Bears won this game. The Vikings were never as good as their record and by the end of the season the Vikings record will be below .500 and the Bears will still not have beaten a team with a winning record.
