How exciting was that?
The VIkings figure to run the best running back in the game early and often. It'll be up to the Bears to take that dynamic off the field (scoring a lot of points early would help) and force Christian Ponder to beat them through the air, a tough task for a guy who many will be quick to point out isn't doing so hot.
Also, let's hope the Illini didn't ruin the field while they were stinking up the joint.
