THE CHICAGO BEARS moved two wins clear at the top of the NFC North with a big 25-20 win against divisional rivals the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday Night Football.

The Bears, chasing their first divisional title since 2010, led 14-0 at half time and pulled clear when Eddie Jackson ran back an interception for a 27-yard touchdown with 8:30 remaining in the fourth quarter.

A successful two-point conversion put the Bears 22-6 in front before late touchdowns from Aldrick Robinson and Stefon Diggs — the latter coming with less then a minute left on the clock — gave the Vikings’ scoreline some respectability.

Up next for the Bears is a trip to the Detroit Lions for Thursday evening’s Thanksgiving opener while the Vikings host neighbours Green Bay on next week’s Sunday Night Football.
