The Vikings dropped a 39-10 decision to the Bears, with rookie quarterback Christian Ponder finally seeing his first action long after the game was decided in the fourth quarter.

We're racing down for locker room access for our stories, but will get reaction posted quickly.

Devin Hester scored two touchdowns for the Bears, on a 48-yard touchdown reception and a 98-yard kickoff return. Jay Cutler threw for a pair of touchdowns and Chicago limited Adrian Peterson to 39 yards rushing.

Donovan McNabb threw for 177 yards, completing 19 of 24 passes before being lifted for Ponder, who was 9 of 17 for 99 yards.
