Chicago Bears At Minnesota Vikings - Third Quarter Open Thread

The Minnesota Vikings trail the Chicago Bears by a point at the Metrodome in the final game of the 2011 season as we head to the locker room for halftime.

Joe Webb is once again in at quarterback for an injured Christian Ponder, who appeared to aggravate his hip injury on a hit by Israel Idonije early in the second quarter. Webb has led a couple of decent drives, one that resulted in a blocked field goal, and one that resulted in a made field goal.

Jared Allen has 1.5 sacks in this one, giving him 20 for the season. He now trails Chris Doleman by one for the Vikings' single-season team record (Doleman had 21 back in 1986) and Michael Strahan's NFL mark of 22.5* is within reach.

So, as we get ready to begin the final half of football of the 2011 season for the Minnesota Vikings, they trail the Chicago Bears by a score of 14-13.
