Vikings take lead on Cordarrelle Patterson TD run

Cordarrelle Patterson keeps making good things happen when the ball is in his hands.

The Bears’ run defense, meanwhile, continues to be a real problem for Chicago.

Patterson’s 33-yard TD run has given the Vikings a 7-3 second-quarter lead against the Bears in the final-ever meeting between the teams at Mall of America Field.

On the play, Patterson lined up at running back, took a hand-off from Christian Ponder and showed exceptional speed and elusiveness on his way to the endzone. He punctuated the touchdown by giving a reluctant official (identified by the Fox telecast as field judge Jeff Lamberth) a low-five.

One of the Vikings’ three first-round picks in the 2013 draft, Patterson now has four TDs, two of which have come on kickoffs.

The 6-5 Bears, who need to win to stay in range of the 7-5 Lions, have already surrendered 89 rushing yards to Minnesota, with Adrian Peterson gaining 60 yards on just eight carries.

    Can someone PLEASE teach the tv announcers what this dude’s name is? It is “Cordarrelle” not freaking “Cordero”!

    The initial fake on the low five was everything.

    Because it is pronounced “Cor-DAR-rul” and they get lazy with it, Ferdinand.

    It took Billick a season and a half to stop calling Jared Allen…Gerald Allen. I wouldn’t hold my breath..))

    It was a pitch, not a hand off. A hand off would not have gave him the momentum he had when he hit the LOS.

    Despite that one Patterson run, the Bears have done well keeping Minnesota off the board…Still porous against the run…And we should have more to show for being ahead in passing yards and time-of-possession.

    maybe there it’s sumthin to the bears/gb as the bigger rivalry.
    with that said, obviously the Vikes are in huge demand for a Qb. B/c McNown has the same #’s as ShAaron in the same # of starts.

    McCown to Jeffery, 80 yards, TD Bears…Yes!

    All this Kid does is make plays. Vikings gameplan: Get him the ball at all costs.

    F.Y.I.
    Cassel’s mustache looks bwtter than ShAarons attempt.

    THE VIKINGS HAVE TO GET RID OF FRAZIER AND THAT COACHING STAFF.

    GET PETERSON FROM K.C.
    AN EX NFL QB THAT IS SMART AND EVERYONE IS TOUTING HIS PLAY DESIGN.

    IT WILL BE JUST LIKE WHEN SAN FRAN GOT HARBAUGH.

    COME ON ZIGGY.
