NFL: MINNESOTA (1-3) at CHICAGO (2-3) <h3>Bears look to reach .500 against Vikings</h3> Minnesota (1-3) at Chicago (2-3) Sunday 1:00 pm EDT CHICAGO (Ticker) -- The Chicago Bears may have saved theirseason with an unlikely win at Lambeau Field. Now, the Bears look to climb back to .500 when they host theMinnesota Vikings on Sunday in another NFC North Divisionbattle. The defending NFC champions have a reason to believe they canrecover from their 1-3 start and make the playoffs - they did itjust two years ago. In 2005, the Bears rebounded after losing three of their firstfour games to capture the NFC North with an 11-5 record. Chicago has another reason for optimism - it has won sixstraight at home against the Vikings, including a 23-13 victorylast season. But the Bears season appeared to be on life support on Sundaybefore it rallied from a 10-point second-half deficit to defeatthe Green Bay Packers, 27-20. Brian Griese tossed a 34-yardtouchdown pass to Desmond Clark with 2:11 remaining for thewinning score. Instead of falling four games behind Green Bay, the Bears pulledwith two games of the Packers. In NFL history, no team hasrallied from a four-game deficit to win a division. "There's a big difference between 2-3 and 1-4," Bears coachLovie Smith said. "As much as anything, we needed to get a win." The difference for Chicago is that the defense finally performedlike the unit that helped lead the Bears to the Super Bowl lastseason. After allowing 341 total yards and 15 first downs in the firsthalf, the Bears held the Packers to just 98 yards and threefirst downs in the second half. That included five straightthree-and-outs that ended with an interception and four punts. The previous week, Chicago yielded an NFL-record 34 points in a37-27 loss to the Detroit Lions. If Chicago's defense is back to last season's level, then thatspells bad news for the Vikings, who have dropped three in a rowand are 27th in passing. Minnesota's game plan likely will be to get the ball into thehands of running back Adrian Peterson as much as possible. Therookie is ninth in the NFL in rushing as surpassed 100 yards inthree of Minnesota's first four games. The Vikings have gotten poor quarterback play as the trio ofTarvaris Jackson, Kelly Holcomb and Brooks Bollinger havecombined to complete only 53 percent of their passes with onlyonly two touchdowns and six interceptions.
