It was exciting to see a couple of former Commodores lead the Chicago Bears to an upset victory over the Minnesota Vikings on national television Monday night. A few of the highlights:
*Jay Cutler threw a 20-yard strike to Earl Bennett for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter (video).
*Chris Williams shut down All-Pro Jared Allen, who had only two tackles and no sacks.
*Hunter Hillenmeyer forced Adrian Peterson to fumble (video) to set up Cutler's winning TD pass in overtime (video).
