Bears score on awesome two-point conversion

Bears score on awesome two-point conversion

Especially when it's on the road.

After trying to establish the run on the first drive of the game, the Bears trusted Trubisky to make plays down the field, and he responded with passes of 12 and 13 yards before a holding penalty negated a 26-yard gain and stalled the possession. But with the Bears now sitting at 1-4 in a division that boasts Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers, now's probably as good of a time as any to let the rookie get in some work.

What did we learn from the victory? Jerick McKinnon sprung loose for a 58-yard touchdown on which Bears linebackers Christian Jones and Jonathan Anderson got washed out completely. This week, the National Football League has put together an enticing battle in the north between the Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears. "I'm never going to put a player out on field that can not take care of themselves". Bradford only played one half as it became rapidly clear the knee continued to bother the veteran quarterback.

Ultimately it didn't matter, but credit to Chicago for pulling off the highlight of the evening. At the first sign of any contact, sometimes by his own teammates, he hit the turf to prevent further injury. He appeared frustrated, and even disinterested at times.

The other player with Alabama football roots in the game was Chicago safety Eddie Jackson.

The bottom line is that Bradford had no business playing in the game. Three plays later, Kai Forbath came on to kick a field goal and give the Vikings a 3-2 lead with 1:02 to play in the first half. But they had to spend so much time on the field that they started to tire in the second half. Keenum was ready, and answered the call. In total on the night, McKinnon had 22 offensive touches for 146 yards and one touchdown. "Made plays downfield. Made plays with his legs". Keenum rebooted the Vikings' offence.

Chicago drafted Mitch Trubisky in the first round this past draft, but have nonetheless chosen to stick with Mike Glennon this season. The Vikings offense had done nothing. This is part of the reason Trubisky should have started all season.

With Keenum running the show, the Vikings were putting drives together and scoring points. Trubisky's first career touchdown pass wasn't the prettiest thing - tipped off the hands of Vikings safety Andrew Sendejo to Zach Miller for the 20-yard score - but the two-point conversion to tie the game might have been. But the defense came up with the play of the night-a Harrison Smith interception-that set up the game-winning field goal. "He extended plays for us, made plays downfield, made plays with his legs, put us in position to win that game". They can not turn Dalvin Cook into a workhorse unless they have the time to actually run the ball. McKinnon was the spark the running game needed as Latavius Murray struggled. Minnesota is allowing just 71.2 rushing yards per game.

The Bears' secondary has yet to register an interception this season, and they're going up against a tough group of Minnesota receivers, including Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs. Keenum had guided the Vikings as the starter the past three games, with mixed results.
