Bears Finish Season With Win Over Minnesota; 17-13

The Chicago Bears stopped their five-game losing streak, as Charles Tillman’s interception return in the second quarter gave the Bears the lead for good in a 17-13 victory over the Vikings on Sunday.

The Bears have won five straight in this series, their longest streak against the Vikings since winning six in a row from 1983-86.

Kahlil Bell rushed for 54 yards on 17 carries for the Bears.

On the final drive, the Vikings got the ball back with no timeouts at their own 6-yard line and 1:51 left, but D.J. Moore’s interception — the second of the game by Webb — at the Chicago 29 was the clincher.

For the Vikings, Jared Allen finished the season with 22 sacks, behind Michael Strahan’s mark of 22 1/2 for the New York Giants in 2001.

The Vikings matched their worst record in franchise history, set first in 1984.

With the loss, they now hold the No. 3 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
