The Chicago Bears' Week 14 loss to the Minnesota Vikings was certainly a tough pill to swallow.

The 21-14 defeat drops the Bears to 8-5 and puts the team in a suddenly precarious position. This was a game Chicago needed to win, and at times it seemed like the Bears flat-out quit.

At least according to Twitter, that is. Let's look at an assortment of tweets detailing the Windy City Meltdown:


What a dog performance by the Bears receivers as a group...even Brandon Marshall, who had several great catches, failed in the clutch...

The bears have dropped about 10 good passes so far...10,000 hours of running routes would allow one to pull a ball in?

The #Bears have fallen. And I'm now convinced I was wrong, they aren't going to get up.

In the midst of the Bears collapse, Fox Sports was kind enough to hit us with this gem:


RT @cjzero: Fox thinks the #Vikings lost and the #Bears won after airing game in which the opposite happened

I guess Cousins was a good pick huh?

Suddenly the Redskins draft strategy in April, not being questioned

In case there was confusion, RG3 is tough... Jay Cutler, no.

Chicago has a tough test against division rival Green Bay in Week 15.
