A quick recap of the Vikings 28-10 loss to divisional foe, Chicago Bears
HOW THE GAME WAS LOST
Plain and simple, the game was lost with the turnover battle. The Vikings committed three turnovers (a fumble by Adrian Peterson, a fumble on an QB to RB exchange and a Christian Ponder interception). Peterson’s fumble and Ponder’s interception both led to Chicago touchdowns.
The Vikings came out of halftime strong with an interception on the Bears first drive of the half by Antoine Winfield. Winfield’s interception led to a two yard touchdown from Christian Ponder to Kyle Rudolph. This cut the score 25-10. On the Bears next drive, it seemed like Matt Forte fumbled with Mistral Raymond returning it 52 yards for a touchdown. Initially, refs said it was confirmed. However, moments later, they said the play was under review (LOL WUT).
Following the review, the call was over turned and Bears retained possession, while 6 points were taken off the board for the Vikings.
If the call had stand, the Vikings would have been down 7 points with a huge momentum shift towards the Vikings. However, the Bears continued the drive and god a field goal to put them up 28-10.
