CHICAGO — The Bears lost for a second-straight week in primetime to an NFC North rival — as the Vikings stayed in control the whole way to win 17-9.
After three inept quarters of offense, the Bears were able to march down 80 yards at the beginning of the fourth quarter – only to be stopped on 4th and goal.
Following a quick three-and-out by Minnesota, Fields and company got another chance for a fourth quarter touchdown to get the game within one score, but were turned away.
With one second left, Fields was able to connect with Jesper Horsted to make it 17-9.
At 4-10, Chicago now has double-digit losses for the first time since 2017. That offseason, Matt Nagy was hired and engineered a 12-4 rookie campaign as a head coach. Since then, he has a 20-26 record as head coach.
With several starters out on the COVID-19 list, the Bears defense did hold their own — holding Minnesota to under 3.5 yards per game.
The Bears look to get back on track in non-primetime Sunday in Seattle. Kickoff is slated for 3:05 p.m.
