Hester's big night marred by injury in 39-10 Bears win over Vikings

CHICAGO -- Devin Hester set the tone with a 48-yard touchdown catch and scored on a career-best 98-yard kickoff return before leaving with a chest injury, and the Chicago Bears routed the Minnesota Vikings 39-10 on Sunday.
But Hester's injury dampened the mood on a night when they got a much-needed win.
That 48-yard TD pass from Cutler on Chicago's first possession got the Bears started quickly as they grabbed a 26-3 halftime lead. Hester's big kickoff return early in the third quarter erased any chance the Vikings had at a comeback.
