You may want to start calling the 2013 Chicago Bears "The Cardiac Kids". After skating by the Bengals last week at home, the football gods were on their side again in an all-important divisional matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. Though the game's setting was an ugly, rain-soaked Soldier Field, the game had plenty of fireworks through the dreariness.

After the Vikings coasted to a six-point lead in the final minute of the game on a field goal, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler and Co. took the field. Cutler sliced and diced the Vikings defense and threw a miraculous touchdown pass to tight end Martellus Bennett with ten seconds remaining.

The Bears, after hosting two consecutive home games, start the season at 2-0. It's quite a start for rookie head coach, Marc Trestman.
