Once again, it was Latavius Murray who took the handoff. At first, it appeared as though he wouldn’t get very far, as several members of the Bears defense met him just feet after the line of scrimmage.
However, a tremendous amount of effort and fighting the team was collectively able to get Murray across the goal line, since Murray kept his feet moving and his teammates were pushing and pulling him toward the end zone.
Minnesota had a 7-0 lead after the extra point by Kai Forbath and put the Vikings in a good position in the first quarter.
