Bridgewater went 3 of 5 for 46 yards in the first half, leading the Vikings to a field goal on his first drive.

Phil Emery’s Bears came up big against 49ers; they must do the same vs. Jets

Phil Emery’s Bears came up big against 49ers; they must do the same vs. Jets

General manager Phil Emery was the biggest winner last week when the Bears rallied improbably to beat the 49ers at Levi’s Stadium.

Questionable Munnerlyn penalty kills Vikings momentum

The biggest moment in the  Vikings’ 20-9 loss to the Saints at the Superdome on Sunday was a controversial penalty that killed the second half momentum the Vikings built.

Munnerlyn lifted Brees up off the ground and threw him down viciously, prompting Brees to jump up and shove Blanton in frustration. Munnerlyn was called for unnecessary roughness, extending the drive that ended on an 18-yard touchdown catch by wide receiver...
