The Minnesota Vikings looked very comfortable early on but ultimately needed a methodical fourth-quarter scoring drive to get past the Chicago Bears in Week 5.

Offensive spotlight: Vikings wideout Justin Jefferson caught all 12 of his catchable targets for 154 yards and nine first downs. Sixty-three of his yards came after the catch, and he racked up five catches of 15 or more yards.

Defensive spotlight: Bears defensive back Kindle Vildor gave up three catches and 47 yards on four targets, but he also snagged a crucial interception and added two passing stops.

Rookie spotlight: Bears tackle Braxton Jones made a significant impact in the running game but gave up three pressures from 29 pass-blocking snaps on first review.

Offensive line spotlight: The Bears offensive line kept QB Justin Fields busy  — on first review, they allowed a sack, a hit and 11 hurries.
