    The Chicago fans were in fury. They couldn't understand what the coach was thinking. Many fans were shocked by the decision. Only 20 minutes before a divisional game, on the road no less, why would the coach decide to bench Cutler? It's not like the Bears had a future star on the bench did they....surely not? The call to start Blake Bell puzzled many, as his rookie year has been anything but spectacular as his 1 TD and 7 INTs coming into today had fans fearing the worst as the Bears faced division leading Vikings. What would happen next would be the best team performance the new owner has seen in his first 4 games as a back-and-forth game ended with the Bears victorious, and all of a sudden anything is possible in the NFC North. "We went into the game today after getting shredded by Rodgers last week and made it our mission to try and improve out pass defense. We were able to limit Josh Freeman to 12/21 passing with 0 TDs and 2 INTs so I'll take that any week in this tough league".

    Both teams were able to use the run effectively, as the Bears would end with 153 yards on the ground compared to 139 for the Vikings. "Looking at the yards allowed on the ground it's crazy to think that we did pretty well against the run for the most part. That one 86 yard run by Joe Banyard really skews the stats but other than that run we were able to hold them for the most part. The injury to Adrian Peterson really looked to take the wind out of their sails and we wish him a speedy recovery, never like seeing any player go down like that".

    This win puts the Bears (4-7) within 2 games of 1st in the divison (shared by both the Lions and Vikings at 6-5; tie breaker going to Lions at the moment). With the Vikings still to come to Chicago along with both matchups against the Lions still left on the schedule, could these Bears somehow do the unthinkable and win the division?
