The Chicago Bears were the fluke team, and now we have to beware them after a 27-13 victory against the Minnesota Vikings. Do we forget that the Vikings were 3-5 entering Soldier Field Sunday?
The Bears now step into a tie with Green Bay as they were dormant this weekend. After a career best against the Cardinals throwing 446 yards, Vikings QB Brett Favre only connected for 170 dismal yards. Bears QB Jay Cutler threw for one of his better days with 237 throwing for three TDs (his two interceptions were awful).
The Bears rush also flourished as they registered 130 yards. This opened the play action up for Cutler (in which he was only sacked once). When the Bears ran play action, Cutler was 7-of-7 with at TD.
The Vikings running game was snuffed by the Bears front four only allowing 51 yards from the amazing Adrian Peterson (I mean the good one, not the Bears predator one).
Devin Hester also accumalated 147 kickoff and punt return yards to give the Bears great field position. As you can tell the Bears played well on all facets of the game.
The Bears, on a short week, take on the depleted Miami Dolphins. Earlier in the season, I figured this would be a good matchup, and rightfully so. The Dolphins attain a great offense with essentially two starting running backs (Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams) and Brandon Marshall.
Look for the Bears to keep on their streak.
