The Bears are 6-3, and tied for first place in the NFC North, after beating the flawed and all but eliminated Minnesota Vikings. It was by far the most complete effort by the offense, and Chicago was clearly dominant in every phase of the game.
It was a solid outing by Jay Cutler, who was adequately protected throughout the game by his line, and his offensive coordinator, who mixed run and pass plays, and schemed lots of quick routes and short drops for his quarterback.
Devin Hester had another career day in the return game, and the defense held tough, and kept Adrian Peterson from gaining much yardage.
This is a Bears team that can run with anybody in the NFC, if they can maintain the poise,and even-handedness they showed today
