The Minnesota Vikings (5-4-1) lost to Chicago Bears 25-20 Sunday night at Soldier Field, in a battle for first place in the NFC North.

The Vikings were not sharp for much of the game, giving up sacks, interceptions, and fumbles -- falling behind 14-3 at the half. The Vikings did score 17 fourth quarter points, but it was too little too late.


Kirk Cousins completed 30 of 46 attempts for 262 yards, two touchdowns and a pair of interceptions. Dalvin Cook was Minnesota's leading rusher with just 12 yards. Stefon Giggs was the leading Vikings receiver with 13 catches for 126 yards.
