Vikings'duck duck goose TD celebration goes viral

The hype that preceded Trubisky's first National Football League start would have paled in comparison with the avalanche of adulation that would have followed a game-winning drive in his debut.

Monday featured only flashes of his potential, whether it's mobility, accuracy, arm strength or awareness.

That makes the Vikings 0-for-2 on fake punts this season after punter Ryan Quigley's incompletion to tight end Blake Bell in their Week 2 loss at Pittsburgh. He finished 12 of 25 for 119 yards. A pass to the end zone was tipped by Vikings safety Andrew Sendejo and landed in the hands of Miller.

The Bears went on to absorb a 20-17 loss when Minnesota's Kai Forbath kicked a 26-yard field goal with 12 seconds to play.

The interception, meanwhile, came at the most inopportune time.

The Bears defense allowed just 55 yards and four first downs in the first half.

Minnesota Vikings wide receivers Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs sat in front of their lockers Monday night and debated the name of the game.

Robert Griffin III was happy to see the Vikings pull Sam Bradford just before halftime of Monday's game against the Bears.

We'll take that over Mike Glennon.

Other than that, everything was copasetic.

Zimmer said he considered pulling Bradford earlier. That was way too late and another example of a defensive coordinator on steroids who doesn't pay enough attention to what's going on elsewhere when it comes to game management.

That help is not on the way anytime soon - unfortunately. Minnesota went on to score late in the 4th quarter and steal the road victory from the Bears. Or is it just a Chicago move to have an edge in the future?

"Us as running backs, our main focus was to make the plays when we touched the ball", McKinnon said. Nonetheless, that was bad optics for a coach on the hot seat.

Keenum came in and led the win by completing 17 of 21 passes for 140 yards and a touchdown.

STRONG OUT OF THE GATES: Last week, Los Angeles Rams running back TODD GURLEY had 215 scrimmage yards (121 rushing, 94 receiving) and a touchdown catch in the team's 35-30 win at Dallas.

The Vikings next game is Sunday when they host the Green Bay Packers. Instead, he took a handoff from Howard and then option pitched to Trubisky, who walked into the end zone.

With the possibility of two starting quarterbacks competing in practice, neither of which is now signed past this season, there is intrigue regarding what the Vikings will do in the immediate future and beyond.

The Vikings answered less than two minutes later, however, widening the margin to 17-9 on Jerick McKinnon's 58-yard touchdown run against a depleted Bears defense that had lost yet another inside linebacker on the previous possession when John Timu exited with a knee injury.

McKinnon was also effective catching the ball, with six receptions for 51 yards.
