Bears Pull Off Incredible 2-Point Conversion Trick Play

Case Keenum replaced Sam Bradfordwith 25 seconds left in the first half and went for 140 yards and a touchdown

Case Keenum replaced Sam Bradfordwith 25 seconds left in the first half and went for 140 yards and a touchdown

Rookie quarterback Mitch Trubisky's 12-yard throw to receiver Kendall Wright was more than a first-down gain for the Bears on a third-and-six play.

That's precisely how it played out. He gave Chicago a chance to win. They have struggled in recent trips to the windy city, including an ugly Monday night loss last season to a hapless Bears team amidst a slide that ultimately doomed their playoff hopes. Imagine Mike Glennon doing that.

The drama surrounding the Vikings' quarterback situation will grow in a matter of days.

But before the Vikings drafted Cook in the second round, they signed Latavius Murray in free agency.

With a palpable buzz racing through a comfortable Soldier Field on Monday night, an era began.

Trubisky finished with 128 yards, a touchdown and an interception on 12-of-25 passing.

But his debut passed the eye test. On both the touchdown and interception, he threw across his body, tried to force a ball in and hit a defender.

"I turned around and it was probably one of the best sights I've ever seen in sports".

The overall offensive operation is a mess for the Bears. The game was typically ugly with turnovers, penalties and other mental mistakes - that's the team they've been recently more often than not.

Bradford's lack of mobility helped the Bears get their first points of the game.

Trubisky said that the atmosphere at Soldier Field is something he'll cherish when reflecting back years later.

That set the stage for Trubisky, who rolled to his right and threw into the end zone to Miller, who caught the ball for a touchdown after it had deflected off the hands of safety Andrew Sendejo.

But then when the Bears took over at their own 10 with 2:32 to play, Trubisky's pass intended for Miller was intercepted by safety Harrison Smith, who was tackled at the Chicago 28.

On the Bears' second drive, there was confusion on a 4th-and-2 play from the Minnesota 38-yard line. The Vikings took a 3-2 lead on Kai Forbath's 26-yard field goal with 1:02 left in the half.

The Vikings should have won this game.

"I'm kind of mad about [the drive that ended with a punt] because we didn't score", Keenum said. Bradford, the quarterback who tore up defenses to set the National Football League season passing percentage record in 2016 and triggered a hot start for the Vikings in 2017, was erratic, in his return from a knee injury that kept him out of the past three games.

Case Keenum has proven this before and did it again Monday against the Chicago Bears in a 20-17 victory.

Chicago's first pass play of over 30 yards this season came on a fake punt in the third quarter when Patrick O'Donnell found a leaking Benny Cunningham wide open in the middle of the field.

The afformentioned quarterback was the last first round pick to start for the Bears in his rookie season. Keenum did, and he sparked a big win this team desperately needed.

Trubisky will provide that ... eventually. "Just broke out to the right, and that was basically me trying to do too much". For his rookie season to be considered a success, all he needs to do is stay healthy and show steady improvement. It will be ugly at times. But for the Bears, it's all about Trubisky now, and the first night of that went about as expected.
