The Minnesota Vikings picked up their 13th win of the regular season on Sunday, downing the Chicago Bears by the score of 29-13. It was the perfect way to cap off a fantastic regular season, but the win was extra sweet for one Viking.

Cornerback Duke Shelley played an instrumental part in Minnesota’s defense down the stretch. However, he couldn’t have dreamed of a better ending to his fourth regular season in the NFL.

Drafted by the Bears in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, Shelley spent his first three seasons in the Windy City. That all came to an end when general manager Ryan Poles took over, waiving him at the end of training camp.

As fate would have it, Shelley brought down his first career interception to seal the deal against his former team. To make it even sweeter, Shelley picked off Bears QB Tim Boyle on the team’s final drive of the season, giving his former employers something to remember heading into the off-season.

Shelley took to Twitter to express his excitement, summing up his emotions beautifully.

Unlike Chicago, Shelley’s focus now turns to the postseason. With Daniel Jones and the New York Giants coming to town, Shelley and the Vikings secondary must continue to be opportune in order to the team’s Super Bowl dream alive.
