CHICAGO, Dec. 14 (UPI) -- An acrobatic interception by rookie Charles Tillman Sunday afternoon saved Chicago's 13-10 win over the Minnesota Vikings.

With 1:02 left, Vikings quarterback Daunte Culpepper threw a near-perfect pass to Randy Moss in the end zone, but Tillman jumped with Moss and ripped the ball out of his hands to prevent Minnesota from scoring the go-ahead touchdown.

The Vikings (8-6) have lost six of their last eight games to lose their grip on the NFC North.

Grossman completed only 13-of-30 passes for 157 yards, but kept the offense running smoothly for Chicago (6-8). In his NFL debut, the first-round pick out of Florida guided the Bears to a turnover-free game.

Anthony Thomas scored the only touchdown for the Bears, who have won three of their last four games.
