Vikings Top Bears 23-20 in Overtime

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Blair Walsh's 34-yard field goal with 1:43 left in overtime gave the Minnesota Vikings a 23-20 victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday after both teams missed kicks in the extra period.

Adrian Peterson rushed 35 times for 211 yards for the Vikings (3-8-1), who tied Green Bay the previous week. Peterson had two 11-yard runs on the final drive to get well within range for Walsh, who missed a 57-yard try earlier in overtime.

Walsh had to kick that one because Rhett Ellison was called for a 15-yard face-mask penalty to wipe out a 39-yard make by Walsh that would've ended the game.

The Bears (6-6) then reached the 29-yard line, but coach Marc Trestman called for a field goal on second-and-7.  Robbie Gould's 47-yarder went wide right.
