Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears: Third quarter recap and fourth quarter discussion

It’s all tied up in Chicago

NFL: Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears Quinn Harris-USA TODAY Sports

Everyone hold up four fingers, because we’ve made it to the final quarter at Soldier Field with the Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears tied at 13-13.

The Bears got the ball first coming out of the locker room, and Cordarrelle Patterson did what he always used to do for the Vikings. He took the opening kickoff and ran it back 104 yards for a touchdown, giving the Bears a lead for the first time in the game at 13-7.

After the Bears muffed a Britton Colquitt punt, with Josh Metellus recovering at the Chicago 20, all the Vikings could muster was a 37-yard field goal from Dan Bailey to cut the Chicago lead to 13-10.

Minnesota tied the game late in the quarter, as Bailey connected again. This one was a 43-yarder and tied the score at 13-13.

That was all for the third quarter. As we move to the fourth quarter, the Bears are set to punt following a sack from rookie D.J. Wonnum, as they’re facing a 4th-and-15 from their own 24.

We’ve got one quarter left at Soldier Field, and these two NFC North rivals are tied, 13-13. Can the Vikings get a rare win in Chicago?
