We like to call this 'Back and forth'

MINNEAPOLIS -- Glad we closed our last post with the reminder about how quickly things can change.

Here's what happened in the span of four plays at the Metrodome:

Minnesota tailback Adrian Peterson limped off the field after a two-yard run. (He has since returned to the field.)

Chicago safety Kevin Payne intercepted a pass off a tip from Danieal Manning, returning the ball 36 yards to the Vikings' 4-yard line.

Bears tailback Matt Forte caught a two-yard touchdown pass. (Where was that play on the goal line in the second quarter?)

It's now 17-14 midway through the third quarter in a hard-hitting and entertaining game.

Sometimes you can wait an entire game for someone to take control. It might not happen in this one.
