Indianapolis Colts at Chicago Bears Recap

Indianapolis Colts at Chicago Bears:

The Bears offense started a similar way to what Chicago fans have been used to for the past few years, poorly on Offense and stead-fast on Defense.  The first couple of series for the Bears saw a sack on the first play, and the Chicago Bears second possession ended with a pick 6 from the Chicago 4 yard line for Jerrell Freeman.  Chicago rebounded after the early mistakes, Matt Forte broke two long runs (31, 15) setting up a Michael Bush 1 yard score. 

Vikings add on Defense and prevent a subtraction

The Minnesota Vikings have shored up their Defense with two signings on Tuesday.  Minnesota added secondary depth by nabbing former Chicago Bears corner back Zack Bowman on a one year deal.  Bowman showed great read and recognition skills when he burst on the scene in 2009 with 6 picks and 10 deflections.  He has not however been able to reproduce that level of performance over the past two seasons and lost his starting position in 2010 to Tim Jennings.

The Vikings kept Outside Linebacker Erin Henderson from escaping by inking the 4 year pro to a one year deal.  Henderson was fourth on the Vikings in 2011 with 91 tackles, he also had 8 tackles for loss in his first full time stint as a starter.
