The Chicago Bears were riding a two game losing streak and needed a strong performance against their divisional foes the Minnesota Vikings. What they got was a solid all-around effort that led to a 28-10 victory.
Jay Cutler made his return to the lineup after missing a game and a half due to a concussion. He showed no affects of the injury as he completed 23 of 31 passes for 188 yards and a touchdown pass. He also scrambled three times.
The Bears were hit hard by the injury bug during the game losing Devin Hester, Matt Forte, Charles Tillman, Chris Spencer and Lance Louis. All will be evaluated and their availability for next week is unknown.
The Bears are now 8-3 and will stay home next week when they play the Seattle Seahawks. Seattle is 6-5 after losing a road game to the Miami Dolphins. The Bears will look to avenge their loss from last season when the Seahawks won a Week 15 matchup 38-14.
