The Minnesota Vikings took an early lead in their NFC North showdown with the Chicago Bears on Sunday when return specialist Marcus Sherels provided the first score of the game in ridiculously easy fashion.

The punt return opened up on the backside, as Sherels made it 65 yards without being touched.

Sunday’s score was Sherel’s third career punt return TD, as the 28-year-old former undrafted rookie continues to be an X-factor for the Vikings in his sixth NFL season.

Sherels’ score was the third return touchdown the Bears have given up in 2015.
