Two long second-half TDs by second-year Bears wideout Alshon Jeffery have given Chicago a 20-10 fourth-quarter lead at Minnesota.
With three quarters complete, Jeffery has 10 catches for 234 yards and two TDs for Chicago, which has taken the lead in the second half after trailing 7-6 at halftime.
Jeffery gave Chicago a 10-7 lead early in the third on an 80-yard TD catch. On the play, Jeffery beat VIkings cornerback Chris Cook and streaked away for the score.
Later in the quarter, Jeffery hauled in a 46-yard score, showing impressive hand strength and body control as he leaped to catch a deep pass over Cook. Jeffery completed the reception by tapping his feet in-bounds and holding onto the ball all the way to the ground in the endzone.
At play’s end, Cook put his hand on an official and was ejected for unsportsmanlike conduct.
