Chicago Bears at Minnesota Vikings: Overtime Open Thread

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sport

For the first time since Weeks 5 and 6 of the 1995 season, the Minnesota Vikings will play consecutive overtime games, as they go into the extra period deadlocked with the Chicago Bears, 20-20.

The Vikings were down by a score of 20-10 going into the fourth quarter, but a wild final fifteen minutes, featuring a touchdown catch by Greg Jennings and a Blair Walsh field goal, tied the game at 20. The Bears actually attempted a 66-yard field goal by Robbie Gould at the end of regulation, but it wound up in the hands of Cordarrelle Patterson, who was stopped on the return.

To review the rules of overtime. . .

-If the team that wins the coin toss goes down and scores a touchdown, the game is over.
-If there is any other result, the other team will get an opportunity to have possession.
-After each team has had one possession, the game is still tied, the game is sudden death.
-For our friends in Green Bay, if the game is still tied after 15 minutes of overtime, the game ends in a tie.

Let's see what happens, ladies and gentlemen!
