The Philadelphia Eagles consistently brought pressure with blitzes and stunts and hit quarterback Sam Bradford 19 times in the Vikings' first loss of the year last week. Last night, the Bears dominated the line of scrimmage and sacked Sam Bradford five times en route to a 20-10 victory.
"We still have that same team in that locker room", Bradford said. We're still a good football team. They played better than we did. Will we see any other big deals today?
Instead of trying to power it straight through the Vikings' front - that's how Unrein was used at fullback last season - the Bears ran a toss to the right. And if there was any doubt the blueprint to beat them was out, it got squashed with this loss.
Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler returned from a long injury absence to lead the Bears to an upset 20-10 win against Minnesota on Monday. The Bears averaged 5.4 yards per run and allowed only one sack of Cutler. If that doesn't say it all, what does? Turner must get the ball out of the pocket, outside the tackles, by whatever means necessary. Both tackles are out for the season and the replacements have been lackluster at best - Jake Long, who was the starting left tackle Monday night, was washed up two contracts ago.
But he gave up two strip sacks against Philadelphia and got beaten by Chicago's Leonard Floyd on a sack.
"We were throwing a lot of stuff at them", Cutler said. "We just can't let him get hit like that". But with his future up in the air after coach John Fox wavered in his commitment to him as the starter, he made a triumphant return.

She promised to continue the policies of President Barack Obama and accused the Trump of trying to destroy Obama's legacy. Schultz says Trump's true impact could come in other races like the ones for US House.
The Vikings (5-2) are ranked 31st out of 32 National Football League teams in total yards (293.3) and rushing yards (70.3) per game and have lost two straight games, 21-10 at Philadelphia on October 23 and 20-10 at Chicago on Monday night.
Jeffery has been deeply and vocally frustrated with the Bears' inability to find the end zone and Brian Hoyer's willingness to risk throws deep, and Cutler is just the man for both of those things. "Those guys played some inspired football and it was fun to be a part of". The way the Bears moved, it was hard to tell.
The Bears managed to navigate through the defense of the Vikings especially on the ground as Jordan Howard rushed for 153 yards and a touchdown in 26 attempts.
"Their strength is rushing the passer", Larsen said, "and I think we did a really good job at stopping that". They gained 2 yards on consecutive running plays late in the first quarter after getting into a very manageable second-and-3. Jeffery caught four passes for 63 yards and his first touchdown catch of the year - an 11-yarder. Even with Jeffery matched up against excellent corner Xavier Rhodes, Cutler was more than happy to put up a jump ball, which Jeffery came down with for 34 yards. After losing two games in a row, the current leaders of the NFC North will need to get their act together if they want to stay on top of the division.
Green Bay Packers' offense in the wide receivers' hands - ESPN The Packers probably didn't keep seven wide receivers on the week 1 roster with the goal of playing two of them as primary tailbacks, but that's how it has worked out. "So I don't know if hopeful's the right word, right this second", Zimmer said when asked if he was optimistic about a rebound by the offensive line. "He's been up and down as far as injuries throughout his career so far, whether it was in camp, preseason and obviously the regular season". That's the mentality to have and I think winning last night is going to spark something in this team.
