By the Numbers: Bears' TNF victory over Panthers


Take a look at some of the notable stats and numbers from the Bears' 16-13 win over the Carolina Panthers Thursday night at Soldier Field:


Quarterback hits by Bears defense

The Bears' defensive line put the pressure on rookie quarterback Bryce Young as the group hit him nine times. Montez Sweat and Justin Jones each totaled three QB hits while Yannick Ngakoue, Rasheem Green and Gervon Dexter Sr. each recorded one.

Sweat also generated a team-high eight pressures while Ngakoue followed with four. The unit sacked Young three times for a total loss of 15 yards.


Game with 80 or more rushing yards for D'Onta Foreman

Foreman continued to be the driving force of the Bears' rushing attack, totaling 80 yards on 21 carries. The veteran running back was also responsible for the Bears' lone touchdown, a 4-yard TD plunge that put Chicago up 16-10 in the third quarter.

The Bears are third in the NFL in rushing and eclipsed 100 yards on the ground for the eighth time this season, recording 133 yards against Carolina.


Points allowed by Bears defense in second half

Carolina's three points in the final two quarters marks the fewest points allowed by the Bears in a second half this season.

The unit forced three consecutive punts out of halftime. On the Panthers' final possession of the night, the unit forced three straight incompletions, which lead to Carolina attempted and missing a potential game-tying 59-yard field goal.


Career field goal for Cairo Santos

The veteran kicker reached the milestone Thursday night with a 39-yard field goal as time expired in the first half which brought the Bears within 10-9.

After three made field goals Thursday night, Santos made 201 field goals on 235 attempts, an 85% success rate.


Career 54-yard FG by Santos

The first of Santos' three field goals against the Panthers was a season-high 54-yarder

The kick marks the second 54-yard FG Santos has attempted and made this season, with the first one coming in the Bears' win versus the Raiders Oct. 22.


Game this season the Bears have held an opponent to less than 50 rushing yards

The Bears defense came into Thursday's game with the fourth best run defense in the league and continued to dominate in that area against the Panthers. The unit allowed Carolina to rush for just 43 yards on 16 attempts, an average of 2.7 yards per carry.

Thursday's performance also marks the seventh consecutive game the Bears defense has allowed under 100 rushing yards.


Tackles by T.J. Edwards this season

In the second quarter, Edwards recorded his 100th tackle of the season. The linebacker led the team Thursday with 12 tackles and now has 110 on year. Edwards is now first all-time in Bears history in tackles through the first 10 weeks of a season.

Heading into Thursday's game, the Chicago native led the NFC in tackles and ranked second in the league behind the Colts' Zaire Franklin, who has 102 tackles.


Matchup since 1967 between a rookie QB drafted No. 1 overall and rookie QB that went undrafted

Young and Tyson Bagent became just the second pair of quarterbacks to fall into this category. The only other matchup was between the Cardinals' Kyler Murray and Steelers' Devlin Hodges on Dec. 8, 2019. Hodges, who went undrafted, also won the matchup, a 23-17 win for Pittsburgh.
