Thanks to a monstrous performance from their rookie running back and a pass rush that spooked Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford, the last-place Chicago Bears beat the Vikings 20-10 on Monday night. "We've just got to build on it". But now we've got to go out and prove it each and every week.
See how your federal salary compares to other feds.
After a 5-0 start, the Vikings have now lost two in a row.
But in the most recent installment of Monday Night Football, Cutler shocked the football world by dismantling the NFL's top defense, throwing for 252 yards and a touchdown without turning the ball over in a 20-10 win over the Minnesota Vikings. The Bears out-gained the Vikings 404 yards to 258.
He has been sacked 11 times in the past two games, but didn't want to point the finger at the offensive line. If that doesn't say it all, what does? Eventually those things will even out, the Vikings will convert more red zone opportunities and games like the one against the Eagles will have a different outcome.
"We need to start climbing that hill", defensive end Akiem Hicks said. That's the mentality to have and I think winning last night is going to spark something in this team.
Bears quarterback Jay Cutler started for the first time in five weeks and four games, returning from injury. Whether he did enough to convince his doubters is moot because the alternative Bears QB, Brian Hoyer, broke an arm last week at Green Bay. "Those guys played inspired football".

Goals from Julian Weigl and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were enough to see them past last year's Primeira Liga runners-up. They have one more point in the Champions League than they do in the Premier League (8).
The Bears vs. Vikings game will air October 31, 2016 Monday 8:30 pm ET and will be shown on ESPN and will be available online via NFL Game pass after midnight. The way the Bears moved, it was hard to tell.
Long run: Jordan Howard took his second carry of the game 69 yards, the Bears' longest run since Kahlil Bell's 72-yarder in 2009 and second-longest since 1989. I hope so because I had fun watching the Bears last night and I haven't said that in a long time. "They hit it. We missed a tackle, bad angles, as a whole defense we give it up".
Minnesota's offense was quiet until Sam Bradford connected with Stefon Diggs for a 25-yard TD late in the fourth quarter.
Jay Cutler #6 of the Chicago Bears warms up against the Washington Redskins at Soldier Field on December 13, 2015 in Chicago, Illinois. But with Cutler reviving the potency of wide receiver Alshon Jeffery in the end-zone and the Bears regaining healthy pass rushers, the team has the chance to be a much better team in the second half of the season than they were in the first half of the season. 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.
"I think early in that season a year ago you could see those capabilities, and they're coming back now". "We kind of buried the fake in there and "22" [safety Harrison Smith] came flying down and Al ran a great slant right behind him".
FLOYD'S EMERGENCE: Bears rookie outside linebacker Leonard Floyd continues to emerge. "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". I thought Cutler did a lot of good things.
