Bears overcome turnovers, beat Vikings on last-minute TD pass

The Vikings got a pair of return touchdowns. They ended four Chicago drives with takeaways. What’s more, Minnesota reached 30 points.

In the end, though, Minnesota couldn’t get the last stop it needed to best Chicago.

The Bears (2-0) knocked off the division-rival Vikings 31-30 Sunday at Soldier Field on a 15-yard Jay Cutler-to-Martellus Bennett touchdown pass with 10 seconds left. Bennett, the Bears’ new starting tight end for 2013, caught a pair of scores from Cutler, who threw for 290 yards and three TDs.

Cutler was picked twice, and he fumbled when sacked for the first and only time on Sunday. Brian Robison picked up the fumble and sprinted for a second-quarter touchdown. That was the second return TD of the first half for Minnesota (0-2), which also got a 105-yard kickoff return from Cordarrelle Patterson on the game’s opening play.

However, the Bears got a long return from Devin Hester on the next kickoff, setting up the first Cutler-to-Bennett TD. Ultimately, that was the story for the Vikings. They did many good things, but they could not close the deal. The offense mustered just one touchdown, and its last three scores were red-zone trips that ended in field goals of 28 yards or less. Quarterback Christian Ponder threw for 227 yards, but he completed just 16-of-30 passes, and he had an interception returned for a score by the Bears’ Tim Jennings.

The Vikings’ defense, meanwhile, surrendered 411 yards, and the Bears converted 7-of-12 third downs.

Minnesota has scored a combined 54 points in two games, but it has no wins to show for its efforts. A key home game vs. the winless Browns is up next for the Vikings.

  1. This turned put be an exciting game.

    Bears definitely had their share of turnovers and costly mistakes, and as much as you want to hate on him, Jay Cutler came through where it counts.

    Bears were sloppy at times but were well coached.

    After all, good teams find ways to win bad games.

  2. Excuse me, The Vikings couldn’t close the deal? I think you misspelled “The Bears.”

    They dominated on offense and defense for most of the game, but a tipped pass interception and a sack strip kept the Vikings close. The Bears were the ones trying to give away a game they should have had a comfortable lead in.

    Either way, Cutler has been money for two straight game-winning drives. Riding that Black Unicorn.

  3. Not sure what they were thinking on the first pick. They get to the one yard line running the ball and then try throwing out of the jumbo package from the one. Rather than try and fool the other team, why not put your two massive receivers on the field instead of throwing to your 3rd TE

  4. ponder looked great viking fans??? so did that great wide out free agent signing the magician signed this offseason, whats his name?? greg Jennings??? Viking’s = 0-2

  5. no way the bears won this game last year. what a difference a coach who believes offense is part of the game makes. nice to see the tight end “experts” said was over rated and over paid come thru. bears fans have been waiting for one who catch the ball since they got rid of olsen yes Cutler made mistakes but he came thru at the end and he and the offense will only get better as the season goes on.

  6. 0-2 and the lavender Larrys are Twisting in the wind. But wait till you get your new monument to your stupidity built. Then those horrid Pack fans will be so jealous of your new digs cause they sure as hell ain’t gonna be jealous of the Biqueens!

  7. With 3 min to go, Purple call a 3rd down play to eat clock & make Bears use timeout instead of going for the win. Needed 6 or keep them pinned. Fraiser played not to lose.

    “After 2 games, Cutler is on pace to be sacked 8 times this year.”

    40 TDs, 24 INTs (ouch), and 4,256 yards.

    The Black Unicorn is looking like a solid pick. Cutler still needs to cut down on some of those horrible picks though but all in all the team looks very solid this year.

    ________________________________

    Pretty much my thoughts exactly, thought Hester looked very good today, all so.

  10. Another bad offensive coordinator with a job in Bill Musgrave. Plus, he’s got a below average QB on top of all that. The Vikings better hope they can get one of those good QBs in next year’s draft to forget the Ponder mistake.

  11. Musgrave lost this game with his pathetic play calling the entire game (as usual) but especially when the Vikings were 1st and goal from the 5. Please let me know when Frazier, Musgrave, Ponder and the Cover 2 defense are finally done in Minnesota. Time to turn the page and quit wasting APs career.

    Vikings fans won’t post for this article they are posting dumb stuff on Packers post.
    ———————————–
    Kind of like dumb jokes here from Packer fans…

  14. Even though the Bears should’ve won by 14-21 PTs, they still won. I have no doubt they lose this game badly last year. The Black Unicorn looks great so far, and I can’t say enough about the line. It’s shocking what a NFL caliber line will do for a football team. I saw last week that never under Lovie had the Bears not had a false start and not given up a sack in the same game. Ever, in his tenure. Maybe we don’t have to worry about 7 sack halves anymore.

  15. NO worries vikings fans. There are only a few teams more pathetic than yours and one of them is next up.

    Adrian you will wake up in cold sweats for many years to come thinking about that last play in GB where you fell short. Your own personal super bowl loss and it will be a close as you ever get to any sort of achievement. That is as long as ponder is qb. Getting late in your career and not many opportunities left.

  16. going to be a long year…ponder cant closeout a game…only in the game because of special teams td and def td…I cringe watching ponder…dont really understand why we dont get patterson more involved…he seems to bring some needed energy to the team

  17. To all Lombardi Losers(what are you doing here? The lard wrapped curds run out?) and Bears fans who are gloating. A win is a win,congrats. But to need a last second score at HOME to beat the Vikings is nothing to brag about. We have an NBA jumping lineup in Patterson,Rudolph and Webb. Why Frazier didn’t use it to win at the end instead of running and kicking the FG made me sick….

  18. Contra, Magician, and all the other Vikings trolls have disappeared from the Packers posts. And they’re not here either….. WHAT HAPPENED????

    LOL Vikings.

  19. Greg Jennings – in 2 games has 8 catches for 118 yards and zero TD’s. Believe in your smelf…… Put it this way – Starks for the Packers has more yards rushing at this point than Jennings does receiving and Starks is the number TWO RB on a team that hadn’t had a 100 yard rusher in 3 years.

    In other words the #2 RB on a team with ZERO run game for what is the average NFL CAREER (3 years) has more offensive production that they big named free agent that thought he was worth 15 million a year.

    Nice one Greg

  20. I don’t understand why some of you say Vikings fans predicted some sort of invincible team this year. Maybe one or two idiots did, but any reasonable Vikings fans knew last year was fluke, and that this team will suck as long as ponder and musgrave are on the team.

    Two or three wins is all this team will get. As long as ponder is back there, a pick six is always coming.

  21. Emery ” If you wanna dance you have to pay the band and if you wanna WIN you have to pay the man” get Cutler signed to a new contract. 2-0 Bears now let the haters live with that all week

  22. I hope AP doesnt finish his career with no hardware like BS. The vikes should trade for josh freeman. 0-2 start = 12 percent chance of playoffs. The Bears are an undeserving 2-0 and at the top of a weak division

  23. Vikings fan here. I didn’t think the Vikes would win at Soldier Field, but they played their hearts out. Chicago showed thus far this regular season that they have an excellent team. Best of luck.

  24. same old same old….. every preseason the Vikes will win the division and are Superbowl shoo in’s…..then the season begins. By week 4, all the purple drankers are calling into Kfan and giving their expert opinion on how next year will be the year.

    Good Win for the Bears…as per usual..looks like Bears n Pack are the only teams in the North.

  25. for those bashing Greg, I don’t get it. We all know the problem is Ponder. There is nothing he can do…

    Vikes fan who predicted the Vikes to win 4 games this year is looking like he may be right.

    first 3 picks next year (not in order). QB / DE / CB

    trade Jared Allen for a 1st now!!!

  26. LOL – people asking where I am and they happen to be packer fans haha. Not sure why packer fans have a love affair with all things vikings but once again they decide to come and try to pick a fight they can’t win. Bears fans, congrats! You guys earned that win with the last drive. Glad you guys are classy like the 9er fans. Too bad packer fans can’t take a page out if your guys book.

    You don’t get why people are bashing Jennings? Really? Maybe it has something to do with the fact that he couldn’t stop talking crap about Aaron Rodgers all off-season, because Rodgers had the nerve to spread the ball around to the open receivers? And that he had to run off to Minnesota to get his chance to be “the man”?

    Yeah, and “the man” in Minnesota has fewer yards (117) and TDs (0) than Randall Cobb (236 yards, 2 TDs), Jordy Nelson (196 and 3), and Jermichael Finley (121 and 2). Not to mention James Jones with his game today (178 yards).

    We bash Greg because he made an incredibly stupid decision, and worsened it by opening his mouth. I bet he wishes he still had Rodgers right about now.

    Vikings fans are so easy to upset over the internet.

    (Starks > Peterson)

  32. If the Vikings get a lead next week and still find a way to lose to the Browns, I think 0-16 might be a real possibility.

    Choking seems to be in their DNA. Its usually highlighted in the playoffs but this year’s Vikings are showing no patience and are throwing away games early in the season.

The nit wit obviously can’t comprehend that with 13 NFL Championships we are the winners and until the biqueens win more than the Packers we will remain the winners with everyone else picking a fight with us.

    I feel bad for you. Is your life that unfulfilled and empty that you must hang your hat on the accomplishments of a team that doesn’t know you exist? Go ahead and hang your hat man, that’s sad.

  39. The Vikings gave us a great game to watch,was very close a real nail biter thanks to Minnesota,i think the vikes can turn it around this year and remain competetive still,the Bears are a good team this year and still was very close.

  40. Next week will be the real test for Chicago and green bay. the Bears can come home 3-0. but if the bengals play like they played Chicago the packers will come home 1-2

  41. urcrap says: Sep 15, 2013 9:53 PM

    Bear 9-7 tops.

    With the NFC East in their schedule 3-1 to 4-0.
    With the AFC North 3-1 to 4-0 Baltimore being only challenge.
    NFC North 4-2 or 5-1. Green Bay always have our number with Aaron Rodgers and Detroit will always be Detroit with Jim Shwartz as HC.
    That’s 10-4 right there with Saints and Rams as toss ups. So at worst 10-6.

    It’s finally nice to have a Head Coach that can actually win you the game instead of hoping not to lose. Frazier is just like Lovie Smith as being conservative and let another team beat themselves. It doesn’t work that way. Jim Harbaugh, Sean Payton will try to beat you not play conservative.

  42. Poor contra trying to save face any way he can. Being that you had the biggest mouth this offseason it is quite satisfying after two games your team is already irrelevant. Your whining and tough talk is sounding quite desperate. Lose to the Browns next week and the few viking fans left will be gone from this site for the season. Go Cleveland!

  43. Lets make this as simple as possible. Ponder and Musgrave are not the answers and the team is not making the playoffs. If Frazier wants to keep his job he needs to do what Baltimore did last year and fire the OC and then see what happens. I am convinced that by the end of the year ownership will be convinced what us fans know right now. Also this is blasphemous but AD is a great 1st and 2nd down back but not the best all around back in the league. We were our best when AD was a compliment to a gun slinger ie 2009.

  44. contra, that retort is so moronic that would defy explanation if we weren’t already familiar with many of your other loony posts such as your self appointment of football authoritarian because you, “played football all the way up to the NCAA level. You are a dunce.

  45. There isn’t a Viking fan alive who didn’t know the Bears were going to drive down the field for a touchdown. Heartbreaking losses are the norm here. For those of you ripping Viking fans for predicting a Super Bowl, I defy you to provide a reference. We all know we’ll never win the Super Bowl. It’s a curse. We still love our team, even though they disappoint us every season.

    Eli Manning has the most picks since he’s been in the league and he has more rings than Peyton. I don’t think the picks are Cutler’s problem. He just needs more of a sense of urgency before the fourth quarter.

  49. Geez, the Packers win one game and the trolls come out in full force. Sure, the Vikes are 0-2 and are having a horrible season thus far, but don’t forget that you’re only one game ahead of us.

    It’s not looking good for Viking fans right now, but there’s a lot of football left to be played. True fans aren’t ready to throw the towel in yet. Even if we go 0-16, I’ll still be wearing my teams colors.

    It’s easy to spot bandwagon fans when the team is playing poorly. Green Bay has a ton, it’s just harder to identify them because your team has been pretty good the last decade or so.

    I will end this post the same way I have ended all of my recent posts. With a hearty FIRE BILL MUSGRAVE.

    And yet, it won’t matter. The bears start strong every year and wind up missing the Playoffs.

    The Packers will sweep the bears, so you may as well count those two losses. The Packers will win the division.

  51. the vikings and bears game was a good game, it was not all one sided and for the one comment that said about 4 turnovers and losing the vikings had 3 turnovers the bears had 4 get your facts straight, the defense did pretty good and jennings is doing just fine along with patterson and simpson, its early in the season and everyone is already writing off the vikings you forget one thing they are missing felton adrians lead blocker out on suspension the games will turn around when he gets back when we play the steelers, next game should hopefully be a win its finally at home.

    As per usual??? How many times have the Bears won the division in the past 10 or so years? Who went to the playoffs last year????

    I’m not trying to say the Vikings are better. With Ponder as their starting QB, Frazier their HC and Musgrave their OC, they will go no where. But how about not spewing garbage from your keyboard with nonsensical statements such as the one you just posted.

  53. @ bigjim50010

    In doing some research I saw the Bears have won the division 3 times in the past 10 years so I was wrong in that aspect. However in doing further research see the following:

    Since 1966:
    Div Winners Playoff Birth Conf Win
    Min 18 27 4
    GB 11 18 5
    CHI 10 14 2
    DET 3 10 0

    I’ll save all of you time and say how the Vikings haven’t won a superbowl, blah, blah, blah. But to continue the nonsense in saying how irrelevant the Vikings are is ludicrous. They have won the division and have more playoffs births than anyone else in the conference which unsubstantiates your statements.

    ——————————–
    In my opinion, Cutler is one of the most underrated QBs in the league. He has gained a lot of my respect over the past 2 years dealing with a terrible front OLine. With time and protection Cutler can do a lot of damage.

    It could be of course, I’m only jealous because we have Ponder QBing the Vikings. Maybe I just want an upgrade. lol. But in all seriousness, Cutler is a good QB and better than most give him credit for.

  60. A one game lead means nothing! The Bears started 2012 at 7-1 and still missed the playoffs. That of course was when Lovie was still in the picture and deservedlywas canned following the season. There is a huge philosophical difference between Lovie’s style and Trestman’s style. In the NFL, you have to be able to put up points every week, PERIOD! With Trestman’s system, they are fully capable of that as they’ve shown, and the Bears aren’t completely reliant on their defense scoring as many points as their offense now! We actually look like a legit NFL team!!!

  61. @vikingfan1971:

    Actually, the Bears did lose the turnover battle 4-3.

    Bears gave up 2 Cutler picks, Cutler & Forte fumbles.
    Vikes had Ponder’s pick-6, AP’s fumble, and the play at the end when the Bears stripped the ball on the kick-off return.

  62. Where are all of the LOUD MOUTH VIKING FANS….oh yea on the Packers thread just throwing hate……
    I hope they go 6and 10

    Pathetic Fans

  63. I like how people blamed the loss last week on Ponder….now THIS WEEK it’s Ponder and Musgrave. What a bunch of tools. I am a DIE HARD VIKES FAN….
    Ponder didn’t lose this game for us, but I’m sure you’ll blame him.
    At the end of the day, we have ZERO PASS RUSH and our DB’s can’t cover anyone.
    Our Defense has given up like 850 yards in 2 games.
    Offense….we scored 24 in the first game and 30 in this game. That should be enough to win. OH YEA….the Ponder LED OFFENSE averages 27 points a game.
    I did like the improvement from week 1 to week 2 for MN. It’s a long year. It’s game two.
    Packers, Bears and Lions are all 1 injury away from being a below .500 team. It’s a long year, and I learned a long, long time ago, not to count your chickens before they hatch, but if you want to count the vikes out, please do so.

    Where are all of the LOUD MOUTH VIKING FANS….oh yea on the Packers thread just throwing hate……
    I hope they go 6and 10

    Pathetic Fans
    …………
    All you do is come on here to troll and talk crap……yet you are calling out “Pathetic fans”? Look in the mirror…..just because you chose to cheer for the Pack, doesn’t make you a better fan. You have said nothing of relevance about football EVER on here….just troll, troll, troll.

  65. Since I ve noticed all of the Viking fans spreading hate and discontent on the Packer s threads…..and they are far far far far far more Viking haters on Packer s threads then Pack s on Vikes, so don’t go there.
    I am so so happy when the Vikings drop another game…I m almost giddy..
    Way to go Super Bowl winless Vikes, oh yea, you guys feel Division titles mean more….so pathetic….
    Stay classy

    Jennings made a poor decision signing a fat contract and making a lot of money for his family? You must live in Sconi…..and be unemployed.
    ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////

    Wait……it’s not about the money, remember? And where is Sconi? Is that next to Mini-hapless? And the significance of unemployment is…………?
    …………
    Its not about the money? Get a clue man….who cares when overpaid athletes say otherwise…….its ALL ABOUT the money! Sconi is where the football team you decided to cheer for plays…….you know, heaven on earth? And only Pack fans would think the players and fans of their favorite team care more about the team than their bottom line.

    Yet you come on here and call out others for “spreading hate” and calling Vikes fans “Pathetic fans”. Don’t you see the irony here at all? Pot meet kettle.

    Here’s the deal ladies………If the Packers/Bears/Lions starting QB gets hurt, they are done!! Repeat DONE!!
    Now you’re going to say that if AP gets hurt, we are done.
    Yea, you are partially right, but I think Gerhert can handle more than people think he can.
    We have Ponder, so you can’t say if our QB goes down, we’re going to be worse.
    Get my point now?
    If not, no need to respond cause you don’t understand the game of football.

  71. @vikings28:

    I see the point you’re trying to make, but I don’t agree with it…Here’s why:

    1.) Gerhart is solid, but the loss of AP would cripple your already one-dimensional offense…And let’s face it, even with AP, there are some who say the Vikes are no better than a .500 team.

    2.) GB without Rodgers would be a less-than-.500 team.

    3.) Lions without Stafford would be no worse than they are now, as long as Megatron stays healthy.

    4.) The Bears have the best defense in the division, the most playmakers (Forte, Marshall, M. Bennett, Jeffery) on offense, and an o-line that has given up one total sack over the first two games. Trestman is a QB guy, so I’d bet McCown would at least run the offense smoothly, if not spectacularly.

    Bears (without Cutler) — 10-6
    GB (without Rodgers) — 7-9
    Lions (without Stafford) — 6-10
    Heidis (without AP) — 4-12 (with Cassell replacing Ponder and AP healthy) — 9-7
