No go for Minnesota on first possession

CHICAGO -- If the first series of the second half is any indication, Minnesota won’t be mounting a comeback in this game.

The Vikings’ drive fizzled on a lazy second -down pass from Brett Favre, ultimately mishandled by tailback Adrian Peterson, and a short-arm attempt to catch a third down pass by receiver Bernard Berrian. The Bears defense still hasn’t allowed the Vikings to penetrate deep enough to so much as attempt a field goal.
