MINNEAPOLIS -- Nice wrinkle here from the Chicago offense, which dropped its non-huddle scheme on Minnesota at just the right time.
The Vikings were on their heels from the start, and the Bears moved 64 yards to tie the game. Quarterback Jay Cutler kept his cool throughout, especially as the decibel level rose at the Metrodome. On the touchdown, a 24-yard pass to receiver Johnny Knox, Cutler called one play and then changed it to another when he spied Knox in single coverage against Vikings cornerback Benny Sapp.
If there was any miscommunication caused by crowd noise, I didn’t notice it. The Metrodome is pretty quiet now with the score tied at 7 and 12:12 remaining in the first half.
