Bears 48, Vikings 41

October 20, 2008|From the Associated Press

CHICAGO -- Kyle Orton threw two touchdown passes, special teams chipped in with two more and the Bears hung on for a 48-41 victory over the Minnesota Vikings.

Chicago intercepted Gus Frerotte four times even though its injury-riddled secondary was missing starting cornerbacks Nathan Vasher and Charles Tillman along with nickel back Danieal Manning. Chicago (4-3) lost star kick returner Devin Hester to a quad injury in the third quarter.

It was the most points the Bears have given up in a win.

The Bears survived a late push by Minnesota (3-4) after building a 17-point lead and won even though Adrian Peterson ran for 121 yards and two touchdowns.

Quoteworthy: "We're not playing very good defense right now. Right now, it seems like we're lost, can't find a rhythm." -- Mike Brown, Bears safety
