Another week, another loss. The Vikings again started their game on an emotional high, this time a 105-yard kickoff return for touchdown by rookie Cordarrelle Patterson. The Bears tied it up quickly and then it was a grind-it-out game that came down to the last ten seconds before it was decided. All in all, things looked a bit better this week.
Where the Vikings Were Bad
1. The offensive line. It still sucks. No decent running lanes for Peterson, and during the first half, Ponder was frequently sitting in a collapsing pocket.
