CHICAGO -- Behind the arm of quarterback Jay Cutler -- 13 of 20 for 149 yards and 2 touchdowns -- the Chicago Bears lead the Minnesota Vikings 14-10 at halftime.

After the Bears surrendered a 53-yard touchdown pass to a wide open Percy Harvin -- thanks to a mistake in coverage by defensive backs Tim Jennings and Chris Harris -- Cutler and the offense took over in Vikings' territory because of a heads-up play by Rashied Davis, who picked up a short kick and returned it 32 yards to the Minnesota 49. Despite a few costly penalties, the Bears were able to find the end zone on a Cutler to Devin Hester 19-yard touchdown pass.

Earlier in the quarter, Cutler found Greg Olsen on a 17-yard touchdown strike.

Johnny Knox leads all Bears receivers with 4 catches for 68 yards.

The Bears had a chance to tack on more points after Minnesota quarterback Brett Favre fumbled the football in the final minute of the half, but Robbie Gould's 43-yard field-goal attempt missed wide left.
