Record-Seekers vs. Bears

The Vikings didn't have many players chasing franchise marks on Sunday, but one defender made it into the record book.


1) Antoine Winfield scored the first touchdown of his career. His 7-yard return was the shortest in interception return for a touchdown in team history. Wally Hilgenberg scored a 14-yarder against Green Bay in 1972, while Mike Merriweather and Joey Browner each had 15-yard interception returns for touchdowns in 1989 and 1985, respectively.

2) Jim Kleinsasser became only the fourth tight end in team history to catch 150 career passes. Steve Jordan is the easy leader in that category with 498. Stu Voigt had 177 and Joe Senser 165. Jermaine Wiggins has 148.
