The Ravens improved to 3-2 with a 30-17 win over the Raiders on Sunday but are just 1-2 at home so far this season.
We haven't given the special teams a whole lot of credit, but their play warrants it this season, and it came through again on Monday night. "It was a great team win overall, but the defense played incredible all night". He had the crowd roaring when he converted the tying two-point run on an option pitch from Zach Miller after they connected on 20-yard TD pass that got deflected near the goal line by Minnesota's Andrew Sendejo.
The Vikings somehow came out of Soldier Field with a victory after some odd plays and the usually poor performance by Minnesota.
The afformentioned quarterback was the last first round pick to start for the Bears in his rookie season.
The Bears were unable to break the 17-17 deadlock on their next two possessions.
Vikings coach Mike Zimmer says there wasn't "any doubt" that Sam Bradford was ready to play ahead of Monday's game, but after he aggravated his knee injury, Zimmer wanted to play it safe and remove him. Cunningham shook Sherels' tackle attempt and evaded defensive end Everson Griffen before running free into the end zone. Forbath also made a 26-yard field goal for the Vikings in the second-quarter.Читайте также: Government pledges to tackle ethnic inequalities in schools
Trubisky finished with 128 yards, a touchdown and an interception on 12-of-25 passing.
At that point, it might become a three-way battle between Bradford, Case Keenum and Teddy Bridgewater, who is eligible to come off the PUP list next week. At that point in time, the Vikings offense was struggling to generate a rhythm and had picked up only three first downs in the first six drives.
Keenum led a 13-play, 75-yard drive to open the second half that ended with a throw on the run to Kyle Rudolph in the end zone. McKinnon led the Vikings with 16 carries, for 95 yards, including a 58-yard touchdown.
With just 2:32 remaining on the clock, in a tie game and backed up inside his own 10-yard line, Mitchell Trubisky threw the game away.
Vikings players praised Keenum, who completed 17 of 21 passes for 140 yards and a touchdown. "We had good field position, our defense was playing really well and we took ourselves out of field position, taking points off the board with penalties". But with the Bears now sitting at 1-4 in a division that boasts Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers, now's probably as good of a time as any to let the rookie get in some work.
The Minnesota Vikings had just been shocked by a fake punt by the Chicago Bears in Week 5 during their Monday Night Football game on a play that resulted in special teams scoring a touchdown against them.
Trubisky showed flashes of his arm strength and athleticism, but his final numbers were not impressive.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
