Peterson: 121 yards rushing, 2 TDs

The highest scoring game in Bears-Vikings history was also the wackiest. The Bears scored touchdowns on a blocked punt, a muffed punt and an offensive fumble, while also getting interceptions from four players. Meanwhile, Peterson chewed them up for 121 rushing yards and two scores.

They said it: "It feels like we keep killing ourselves. We put up [439] yards on a pretty good defense."

Dec. 28, 2009: Bears 36, Vikings 30

Peterson: 137 total yards, 2 TDs, 1 fumble lost

The Bears were out of the playoff race while the Vikings were finishing a division-winning season, while Peterson ran for 94 yards, caught three passes for 43 yards and scored twice. So you can't call this a great Bears performance. But the Bears won, thanks in large part to Hunter Hillenmeyer forcing Peterson to fumble in overtime. The Bears won on the next play on a 39-yard touchdown pass to Devin Aromashodu.
