The Bears kept the Vikings offense largely at bay in the first half.

  • Adrian Peterson had 11 carries for 63 yards.
  • Greg Jennings led Vikings receivers with 3 catches for 40 yards.  Kyle Rudolph added a 20 yard TD catch.

On the injury front, Major Wright was evaluated for a concussion, but he was deemed OK and returned.  Peanut Tillman left briefly as they tended to his right knee.  It looked like Kyle Long may have popped a hammy chasing down the fumble return for TD, but he returned as well.
