Bears completely fool Vikings with flawless fake punt play

In total on the night, McKinnon had 22 offensive touches for 146 yards and one touchdown. Case Keenum is an obvious downgrade, but he'd done the bare minimum to keep the Vikings at a 2-2 record when they traveled to face the Chicago Bears in Week 5.

Trubisky had a chance to go win the game, 90 yards from the end zone with 2:32 left in a tie game.

Overall, the Bears hurt themselves with mistakes. And the production was very Glennon-esque, even sub-Glennon-esque: 12-for-25 passing (48 percent), 128 yards, a TD pass, the interception and a passer rating (60.1) lower than any of Glennon's four.

On the first touchdown pass of his career, Trubisky used play-action to the left to create space, and then, rolled out to the right of the formation.

It's been a bit since the Bears have played in a game that could be classified as "highly anticipated". It set a tone for a disjointed first half on offense. Bradford, the quarterback who tore up defenses to set the National Football League season passing percentage record in 2016 and triggered a hot start for the Vikings in 2017, was erratic, in his return from a knee injury that kept him out of the past three games.

It was the first Bears safety since Floyd notched one in Week 13 last season against the San Francisco 49ers.

While Trubisky took blame for the interception, teammates placed the blame for the loss on their shoulders, pointing to penalties that took points off the board early and missed assignments that led to botched plays.

Dalvin Cook is going to have to carry a lot of the load in this offense so that the Vikings are not spending all their time trying to figure out how they will make the best plays that get the ball away from Sam Bradford. It was a trick play the Bears first showed during training camp in Bourbonnais. Vikings trainer Eric Sugarman said Tuesday Bradford did not suffer a new injury Monday night and is dealing with "wear and tear" on his knee.

Bradford, 29, completed just 5-of-11 passes for 36 yards before exiting the game.

The Bears' seven first-half possessions resulted in six punts and a turnover. Minnesota is allowing just 71.2 rushing yards per game.

The Minnesota Vikings visit the Chicago Bears in this week's Monday nighter at 1:30 GMT at Soldier Field.

The Bears again stalled on their first drive of the second half.

The Vikings come into this one with a home game against the Packers up next. Punter Pat O'Donnell took the snap and immediately threw over the middle for Benny Cunningham, who weaved his way through defenders for a touchdown to cut the lead to 10-9.

That cut the lead to 10-9, but it didn't last long. McKinnon produced 95 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries.

The fireworks kept coming as the Bears responded. Chicago didn't score an offensive point until 12:24 to play in the game, and that was on a fluke play when Andrew Sendejo tipped a Mitchell Trubisky pass in the end zone and it landed right in tight end Zach Miller's arms for the score.
