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.

The last time the Minnesota Vikings played the Chicago Bears, they were well on their way to an important division victory on the road. Until, that is, Jay Cutler, ruined their day. The Vikings led by six points with 3:15 to play at Soldier Field on Sept. 15. Then Cutler drove the Bears 66 yards, finishing the drive with a 16-yard touchdown pass to Martellus Bennett with 10 seconds to win it. Cutler will not play in the rematch Sunday at the Metrodome because of a high left ankle sprain. A reason for the Vikings to celebrate?
