Danieal Manning!

CHICAGO -- If the Bears win this game, will Danieal Manning be their MVP?

For the second time this evening, Manning has answered a Minnesota score with a big kickoff return. His latest, a 59-yarder, set up Jay Cutler’s 20-yard touchdown pass to receiver Earl Bennett.

The Bears reclaimed the lead on the pass, 30-23, and now Israel Idonije’s blocked extra point is beginning to loom large. Let’s brace for a wild finish. I’ll be back with you shortly after the game.
