A lot of strange things tend to happen on Halloween, and the Monday night matchup between the Minnesota Vikings and the Chicago Bears further proved that notion. For only the second time this season, the Bears walked away from a game victorious, defeating the Vikings by the score of 20-10. This win doubles Chicago win total at home from last year, and gives them some much-needed good news going into their bye week.

By far, this was the Bears’ best game of the 2016 season. The offense gained 403 total yards against the No. 1 defense in the NFL, while the defense allowed Minnesota to convert on only two of their 15 third downs, and ended the night with five sacks. For the Bears’ sake, hopefully this wasn’t a fluke, and they can build off of this win after their extended break.
