Minnesota Vikings defeat the Chicago Bears in a tense affair

The QB had impressive stats to back his performance, While Cousins only threw for 87 yards, he scored two touchdowns and had one interception; two carries, and 10 yards.

The Bears meanwhile were their hapless self as they posed no threat to the opposition. The match could’ve ended in a shutdown for Chicago if they hadn’t scored in the last moments of the match.
