NFL Scores Week 17: Bears Vs. Vikings, Jared Allen Falls Just Short Of Sacks Record

Jarred Allen finishes season with 22.0 sacks, just short of Michael Strahan's NFL record, but breaking Chris Doleman's Vikings record as Minnesota falls to Bears.

Jan 1, 2012 - Jared Allen had a tall mountain to climb in order to catch Michael Strahan for the single-season sacks record, and he nearly did it on the final day of the season. But Allen's 3.5 sacks against the Chicago Bears left him a half-sack short of Strahan's 2001 total of 22.5 sacks and the Vikings fell 17-13 on Sunday despite sacking Josh McCown seven times. Allen's total of 22.0 sacks was enough to pass Chris Doleman for the Vikings' team record.

Both teams entered the game having already been eliminated from playoff contention, so Allen's record was probably the most significant thing going on. But the Bears did manage to finish with a 8-8 record to end a five-game losing streak.

The play of the game for the Bears was made by Charles Tillman , whose second quarter interception return for a touchdown stood up as the game-winner.

Overall, it was a pretty forgettable game for fans of offense. The Vikings were picked off three times and McCown was limited to just 160 yards passing. Neither team managed to rush for 100 yards or pass for 200.

The one bright spot for the Vikings (3-13) offense was Percy Harvin , who capped off his impressive season with 115 yards receiving and a rushing touchdown.
