MINNEAPOLIS — Charles Tillman's interception return in the second quarter gave Chicago the lead for good, and the Bears stopped their five-game losing streak with a 17-13 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday despite 3½ sacks by Jared Allen.
Allen finished the season with 22 sacks, behind Michael Strahan's mark of 22½ for the New York Giants in 2001.
Joe Webb relieved Christian Ponder at quarterback for the Vikings (3-13) for the third time in the last month, but the wild-scrambling Webb wasn't able to keep the Vikings from their worst record in franchise history, matching the 1984 team.
The Vikings had the ball with no timeouts at their 6-yard line and 1:51 left, but D.J. Moore's interception at the Chicago 29 sealed it for the Bears (8-8).
