Michael Bush led the Bears rushing attack with 60 hard-earned yards and two touchdowns, and Jay Cutler made his return after missing the team's last game with a concussion. 

Cutler was sharp through most of the contest, completing 23-of-31 passes for 188 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

Adrian Peterson rushed for 108 yards on 18 carries—his fifth straight 100-plus-yard performance—but Christian Ponder and the Vikings passing attack struggled throughout the game without Percy Harvin.

Ponder completed 22-of-43 passes for just 159 yards with one touchdown and one interception, and he also lost one fumble.

The Bears improved to 8-3 on the season and will host the Seattle Seahawks in Week 13, while the Vikings fell to 6-5 and will travel to Green Bay and face the Packers next Sunday.
