The Chicago Bears bounced back on Sunday Night Football in Week 6 with a dominant win over the Minnesota Vikings 39-10. Minnesota threatened to get back into the game shortly after halftime with a Jared Allen sack, which caused a Jay Cutler fumble. The ensuing Adrian Peterson touchdown made the score 26-10. Devin Hester quickly ended any idea of a Minnesota comeback.
With new starters at safety lining up for the Bears and Julius Peppers starting after missing practice all week, the Bears' struggling defense turned in a dominant performance Sunday night.
The offensive line also came together finally, with Lance Louis playing beside Chris Spencer on the right side. Jay Cutler was only sacked once by Allen, who broke through a double-team. Allen was blanketed all night by at least two Bears and was largely ineffective aside from the turnover he forced.
The Bears are back on the right track, so let's take a look at one report card the Bears won't want to hide from Mom.
