Cordarrelle Patterson returns opening kickoff for score, but Bears respond

Cordarrelle Patterson AP

Vikings rookie wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson began Sunday’s Minnesota-Chicago game with a 105-yard kickoff return against the Bears’ well-regarded special-teams coverage unit.

One of the Vikings’ three 2013 first-round picks, Patterson got excellent blocking from his teammates, and once he got past Bears kicker Robbie Gould around Minnesota’s 30-yard line, he was gone.

The Bears, however, would quickly counter. On the Vikings’ first kickoff, Bears return specialist Devin Hester got a kick he could bring back, and he capitalized, breaking free for 76 yards. Given excellent field position, the Bears, led by the rushing of Matt Forte, put together a five-play, 32-yard drive ending in a one-yard TD pass from Jay Cutler to Martellus Bennett.

The Bears and Vikings are tied 7-7 in the first quarter.

    You’re not intelligent, or you’re not watching.

    I think a little of both.

    Bears lose this game if Lovie’s still the coach…And Emery/Trestman have this team playing lights-out.

    The Bears managed to squeak another one out at home against a horrible 0-2 Viking team that featured that noodle armed Ponder chick.
