Monday Night Football: The Bears defeat the Vikings in an unpleasant fashion, intercepting Joshua Dobbs four times.

However, the Chicago Bears defeated the Minnesota Vikings 12-10 on Monday night despite two fumbles by Justin Fields in the fourth quarter.

The Bears depended on Joshua Dobbs’ four interceptions on a dreadful night for the quarterback for the Vikings, whose aspirations for free agency in the near future took a serious knock.

With ten seconds left, Fields overcame his errors to spearhead Cairo Santos’ late drive that resulted in the game-winning field goal.

In a game where the starting quarterbacks combined for six interceptions and just one touchdown, Santos’ field goal was their fourth of the evening.

With the Steelers, he was a backup quarterback for five years without ever starting a game or throwing a touchdown. He has 43 career passing yards throughout six seasons at this time last year.

Following Kirk Cousins’ season-ending Achilles injury, the Vikings acquired Dobbs on Tuesday, making it his fifth NFL franchise in 11 months. Minnesota had to part with late-round draft assets to the Cardinals in order to acquire Dobbs.

Even yet, Jaren Hall, a rookie selected in the fifth round out of BYU, was starting by Minnesota on Sunday just because he had been a part of the offense for six months, although Dobbs had only joined the squad four days earlier.

The Vikings had very few practice snaps for a second because they were too preoccupied trying to get a quarterback ready for Sunday. Hall received the first-team reps.

However, Dobbs stands out in another way: he earned a 4.0 GPA and a degree in aerospace engineering from Tennessee University.

That is, easy reading for something as sophisticated as an NFL playbook, which is designed to be absorbed over the course of weeks or even months.

The folk hero quarterback led a slow offense that didn’t find its footing till the fourth quarter in a game that Minnesota would not have needed many points to win, throwing four interceptions throughout the Vikings’ 12-10 “Monday Night Football” loss to the Bears.

Throughout the game, Dobbs was under constant pressure from the Bears’ defense, who only sacked him twice but applying a lot of pressure when their defensive supports made plays.

The rash of turnovers did not help Chicago’s chances of capitalizing. Out of the four interceptions by Dobbs, the Bears managed just three scores.

Meanwhile, the Vikings swiftly converted Chicago’s first turnover of the game—a disheartening fumble by Fields while the Bears might have had a chance to increase their advantage to two possessions—into a touchdown.

Fields mishandled the ball anew on the following possession, so it appeared as though that touchdown might make a difference, but in the closing minutes, the Bears’ defense returned the ball to Fields’ control. Fields provided.

Fields found an open D.J. Moore to score a 36-yard gain on a third and 10 play that was beyond field goal range.

The Illinois Bears only had to kneel at that time for Cairo Santos to have the opportunity to win the game. With ten seconds left, Santos completed the 30-yard try, which would guarantee the victory for Chicago.
