The Minnesota Vikings turned it over four times in their 12-10 loss to the Chicago Bears on Monday night, dropping to 6-6. It was a hard-fought slugfest throughout, making for ugly football.

Below are five numbers that tell the story of Minnesota’s loss to the division-rival Chicago Bears.

1

The Bears are the only NFL team in the Super Bowl era to win a road game despite scoring no TDs, having 75+ penalty yards and losing multiple fumbles.

-7

The Vikings’ -7 yards in the first quarter were the fewest by any NFL team in the first quarter since the Packers managed -12 in a Week 1 game in 2019 against, ahem, the Bears.

3

The Bears intercepted the Vikings four times, completing their league-leading third three-interception game. Matt Cassel was the last Vikings QB to throw four interceptions in a 30-7 loss to the Patriots at TCF Bank Stadium in 2014.

4

Josh Metellus is the fourth Vikings defender with multiple forced fumbles through 12 weeks.

0

The Bears won their first game without a touchdown since 1993.
