The Minnesota Vikings gave the Chicago Bears almost all they could handle Sunday afternoon at Soldier Field.
Anytime Adrian Peterson tops 100 rushing yards, the Bears commit four turnovers, and give up a touchdown on special teams, many Bears fans would fear for the worst.
Well, only if they didn't see Martellus Bennett's stat line.
Bennett collected seven catches for 76 yards and two touchdowns. His final reception tied the game at 30, with 10 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter.
Robbie Gould’s extra point gave the Bears a 31-30 lead and the Bears’ special teams unit sealed the deal by forcing and recovering a fumble on the ensuing kickoff.
Bennett's stellar performance was apart of a collaborative effort from the Bears to rally and win a tough game. Corey Wooton recovered a rare fumble by Adrian Peterson and Tim Jennings returned a Christian Ponder interception for a touchdown.
Devin Hester gained 249 kick return yards, setting up Chicago's offense to start near the red zone twice.
Despite committing three turnovers, Cutler was fairly efficient completing 28 of 39 passes for 290 yards and three touchdowns.
Head coach Marc Trestman called his Bears team "resilient" in in post game interviews and was impressed by the mental toughness of his quarterback and his team as a whole.
"He [Cutler] had moments of adversity throughout this game," Trestman said. "He never flinched and the guys around him never didn't either."
The Bears are now 2-0 under and will prepare to play the Pittsburgh Steelers (0-1) next Sunday night at Heinz Field.
