Clock Malfunction Factors Into Vikings QB Bridgewater’s Last Minute Interception

The Minnesota Vikings are not blaming the fourth quarter clock malfunctions on their 21-13 loss to the Chicago Bears Sunday at Soldier Field. But, they are saying it factored into the play that denied them a chance to tie the game. Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater threw a long pass to the end zone with plenty of time remaining in the game, but thought the clock was running out. The interception allowed the Bears to take a knee for the remainder of the game. Tight end Kyle Rudolph returned to the lineup, but he was a non-factor.
