Dalvin Cook rushed for 89 yards on 28 carries and Kirk Cousins tossed two touchdowns as the Minnesota Vikings picked up a 17-9 victory on the road over the Chicago Bears on Monday night.
In a game that was far from an offensive clinic for either team, the Vikings did just enough and made fewer mistakes.
The Bears fumbled four times with three being recovered by Minnesota. Justin Fields, Damiere Byrd and David Montgomery all lost fumbled for the Bears while Fields had a second fumble that he managed to recover to maintain possession.
With the Bears shorthanded in the secondary, Chicago promoted Dee Virgin to its active roster for tonight’s game vs. the Vikings.

What an embarrassment the Bears are, at home, vs a mediocre-at-best Vikings team. A complete show, starting at the top, in incompetence.
