VIDEO: Devin Hester Catches Long Bomb To Put Bears Up Early Over Vikings

The Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings are facing off on Sunday Night Football this week. Typically a game between the two worst teams in the NFC North isn't placed in must-watch territory, but Devin Hester has already put up a highlight early in the first quarter as he put the Bears ahead 7-0.

Jay Cutler faked a handoff and forced safety Jamarca Sanford to bite on the run, waited for Hester to get behind the coverage and lofted a 48-yard bomb for the touchdown in between two Vikings receivers. The Bears' took just three plays to get into the endzone after forcing a three-and-out on Minnesota's first possession.


This game probably isn't going to be pretty, but the lone highlight so far has probably been worth the price of admission -- at least for those who paid to watch at Soldier Field, anyway.
