The Vikings appeared to have a big play early on, as Danielle Hunter chased down Mitchell Trubisky and stripped the ball away. Everson Griffen recovered the loose ball, but a defensive holding penalty on the Vikings wiped the call off the board. Mitchell Trubisky was injured on the play, and Chase Daniel came in at quarterback for the Bears in his place.
The Bears got a big pass from Daniel to Allen Robinson to set themselves up with first-and-goal at the Minnesota 5-yard line. After a penalty, the Bears appeared to fumble again for a huge loss, but it was ruled an incomplete pass after a Chicago challenge. On the next play, they got the first points of the game, as Daniel found Tarik Cohen for a 10-yard score to put the home team up, 7-0.
The Vikings got into Chicago territory on their first possession, and Kirk Cousins missed what could have been a 48-yard touchdown to Adam Thielen on an overthrown pass.
That was pretty much all the action from the first quarter of play, as the Vikings trail the Bears, 7-0. Chicago is currently looking at 3rd-and-7 from their own 24. Come join us for the second quarter!
