Both teams have had plenty of opportunities in the first half of play this afternoon, but the Bears' new found ability to convert on third downs. . .they're 7 out of 10 this afternoon after entering the game as the league's worst third-down offense. . .has helped them to a 14-10 lead over the Vikings.
Jay Cutler has two touchdown passes, a 17-yarder to Greg Olsen and a 19-yarder to Devin Hester, while a 53-yard pass to Percy Harvin from Brett Favre has accounted for the lone Vikings' touchdown. Ryan Longwell is 1-for-2 on field goal attempts in the Soldier Field winds today, while Chicago kicker Robbie Gould is 0-for-1, missing just before the halftime break.
Join us for all the action here, folks. . .the Vikings need this one.
