Everyone hold four fingers way up above your head, because we’re headed to the fourth quarter of the final home game of the year with your Minnesota Vikings trailing the Chicago Bears by a score of 27-20.

Minnesota got the football to start the second half, and got their second touchdown of the afternoon courtesy of a 1-yard run from Dalvin Cook, his 15th touchdown of the season. Dan Bailey was good on the extra point for the second time today, and the Bears’ lead was down to 20-17.

Chicago answered right back on their first possession of the second half, as David Montgomery scored from 14 yards out. The extra point from Santos made it 27-17 with about five minutes remaining in the third quarter. The Bears had scored just 17 points in the third quarter all season before that touchdown.

The Vikings cut into the lead on the next possession, as Dan Bailey connected from 22 yards out to make it 27-20 with about two and a half minutes remaining in the third quarter.

As we move to the fourth quarter, the Bears are on the move again, as they are looking at a 2nd-and-5 from the Minnesota 32-yard line.

Can the Vikings pull off another comeback victory? They’re down by seven to the Bears as we enter the fourth quarter but Chicago is threatening again. Come watch the final quarter of football at U.S. Bank Stadium this season with us!
