Matt Eberflus’ team made its way to the Twin Cities looking to surprise the Vikings. The Bears were overwhelmed early on and found themselves down 21-3 in the second quarter. Chicago would score the next 19 points of the game and took a 22-21 lead with less than 10 minutes to play.
But Eberflus’ defense couldn’t stop Minnesota from putting together a seven-minute drive that resulted in the game-winning TD and a third straight loss to the Vikings.
A week ago, the Seahawks outlasted the Lions in Detroit in a game that featured a combined 93 points. This time around, Pete Carroll’s club was on the short end of another shootout – this time at New Orleans.
It was another impressive outing by quarterback Geno Smith, who threw for 268 yards and three scores. Seattle owned a 32-31 lead midway through the fourth quarter but had zero answers for New Orleans’ jack of all trades Taysom Hill.
The Silver and Black finally got into the win column last week with a win over the Broncos. Now the Raiders faced their third divisional foe in five weeks as they headed to Kansas City for a Monday night clash.
The team jumped out to a 17-0 lead but the Las Vegas defense had zero answers for Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce. The Raiders inched within 30-29 in the fourth quarter and opted to take the lead on a two-point conversion that would fail.
