Here's a look at the 2010-19 decade by the numbers:

3: Games the Bears played outside the United States. They defeated the Bills in Toronto 22-19 on Nov. 7, 2010 in their first regular-season game ever played in another country. The Bears then visited London twice, defeating the Buccaneers 24-18 on Oct. 23, 2011 and losing to the Raiders 24-21 on Oct. 6, 2019.

6: Touchdown passes thrown by quarterback Mitchell Trubisky in a 48-10 win over the Buccaneers on Sept. 30, 2018 at Soldier Field, one shy of the NFL record. Trubisky became the first Bears quarterback to throw five TD passes in one half, staking the Bears to a 38-3 halftime lead.

18: Interceptions by cornerback Kyle Fuller, the most by a Bears player. Selected by the Bears with the 14th pick in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, Fuller was voted first-team All-Pro and named to the Pro Bowl in 2018 when he tied for the NFL lead with seven interceptions.

18: Bears players who attempted at least one pass: 12 quarterbacks, two running backs, two receivers and two punters.

24: Bears players who were named to the Pro Bowl. Ten of the 24 were selected to multiple Pro Bowls.

37.5: Sacks by defensive end Julius Peppers, the most by a Bears player. Peppers signed with the Bears as a free agent in 2010 and was voted to the Pro Bowl in three of his four seasons with the team.

43: Bears players who caught touchdown passes, including quarterback Matt Barkley on a throw from receiver Cameron Meredith in 2016.

48: Touchdowns scored by running back Matt Forte, the most by a Bears player. A 2008 second-round draft pick from Tulane, Forte also led the team with 6,435 yards rushing and 367 receptions during the decade.

108: Games played by defensive back Sherrick McManis, the most by a Bears player. The longest tenured player on the current roster, McManis was acquired by the Bears on Aug. 31, 2012 in a trade with the Texans for fullback Tyler Clutts.

127: Touchdown passes thrown by quarterback Jay Cutler, the most by a Bears player. Cutler was acquired by the Bears on April 2, 2009 in a trade with the Broncos and remained with the team through the 2016 season.

159: Total interceptions by the Bears defense, a combined effort of 62 different players.

205: Rushing yards gained by Forte in a 23-6 win over the Panthers at Soldier Field on Oct. 2, 2011, tied for the second most in Bears history.

249: Receiving yards compiled by receiver Alshon Jeffery in an overtime loss to the Vikings on Dec. 1, 2013 in Minnesota. Jeffery eclipsed his own record of 218 yards he had set two months earlier in a loss to the Saints at Soldier Field.

374: Total sacks by the Bears defense, ranging from 31 in 2013 to a league-high 50 in 2018. Eighty-five different players recorded sacks, including 19 on the current roster.

387: Touchdowns scored by the Bears offense, defense and special teams. The defense accounted for nine touchdowns in 2012, leading the Bears to a 10-6 record

632: Points scored by kicker Robbie Gould, the most by a Bears player. Gould signed with the Bears in 2006 and remained their kicker through the 2015 season, leaving as the franchise's all-time leading scorer with 1,207 points.

3,287: Completed passes to 81 different receivers, 30 of which have caught a pass thrown by Mitchell Trubisky.

9,189: Total combined tackles. In 2014, the team finished just three tackles shy of 1,000.

115,156: Miles flown by the Bears. The team traveled over 18,000 miles in 2011 due to trips to New Orleans, Denver, Oakland and London. Two years later, the team traveled a decade-low 6,036 miles when the Bears never played farther south than St. Louis and farther west than Minneapolis.

5,168,632: Total attendance at Soldier Field, including two playoff appearances. On average, just over 63,000 fans attended each game, well over Soldier Field's 61,500-person capacity.
