Vikings vs. Bears: Full Roster Report Card Grades for Minnesota
Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Spor

The Minnesota Vikings came within 10 seconds of pulling off an upset over the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field, a place they have struggled recently. Their 31-30 loss Sunday to the Bears, although close, will be remembered as a game that the Vikings did just enough to lose. 

The Vikings offense wasted plenty of chances in the second half. Despite putting together the first three scoring drives of the second half, the Vikings failed to score a touchdown. 

There were plenty of chances to put the Bears away as the Vikings had two drives that lasted 13 plays, but stalled deep in Chicago territory and the Vikings had to settle for field goals. With 3:08 left in the game, the Vikings had outscored the Bears 9-0 in the second half to take a six-point lead.

Another four points by turning one of those field goals into a touchdown would have put the Vikings ahead by two scores and given them an improbable win.

With the loss there were some bright spots, but not enough to raise any grades much above the average mark of a C.

Here are the grades for the Vikings' roster in Week 2.
