For the last time this season, I’m going to ask you to raise four fingers above your heads. . .we enter the final quarter of the 2021 regular season with your Minnesota Vikings lagging behind Chicago Bear by a score of 17-10.
Minnesota got the ball out of the locker room and finally put the ball in the end zone! On a 3rd and 13th, Kirk Cousins found a wide-open Ihmir Smith-Marsette for the rookie’s second touchdown of the season, a score of 44 yards to reduce the Bears’ lead to 14-10.
Chicago recovered the ball and, once again, moved down the field with little resistance, coming in with a first and a goal in Minnesota 7. After Andy Dalton appeared to have a touchdown, but was knocked out by contact at the 1-yard line, the Bears scored the 4th goal and Andy Dalton was sacked by Anthony Barr for a BIG loss to keep the Bears off the board.
However, the Minnesota offense was knocked out three times, with Cousins sacked for the third time in the afternoon, and the ball returned to Chicago. The Bears then took to the field, but had to settle for another basket from Santos, this one from 42 yards to take a 17-10 lead.
As we move into the fourth quarter, the Vikings have a 1st and 10 from their own 47-yard line.
We’re heading into the final quarter of the 2021 NFL season for the Minnesota Vikings, and they are trailing the Chicago Bears by a score of 17-10. Come close the season with us!
