Take a look at some of the notable stats and numbers from the Bears' Week 15 game against the Cleveland Browns:


Sacks by Montez Sweat

The star pass rusher's 2.5 sacks against the Browns marked his new career-high for sacks in a single game. He also recorded five tackles, three hits and six QB pressures.

Since Sweat's first game with the Bears on Nov. 5, he has totaled 6.0 sacks, increasing his season total to a career-high 12.5. The fifth-year pro is the sack leader for both the Bears and the Commanders.

Team-high 6 pressures for Sweat

In 26 snaps against Browns right tackle James Hudson, Sweat pressured Browns quarterback Joe Flacco six times. According to Next Gen Stats, Sweat has recorded a 19.1% pressure rate since joining the Bears ahead of Week 9, the fourth-highest percentage in the NFL over that span.


Career touchdown for Tremaine Edmunds

The linebacker recorded the first pick-six and touchdown of his career, intercepting Flacco in the third quarter and returning it 45 yards for the score.

Edmunds now has four interceptions this season, adding to his career-best season in terms of takeaways. The sixth-year pro's big play also marks the second defensive touchdown for the Bears this season.


Interceptions by Bears defense

The Bears defense continued to dominate the takeaway battle, adding another three interceptions this week. Their 18 interceptions is second in the NFL behind only the San Francisco 49ers.

On top of Edmunds' pick-six, safety Eddie Jackson recorded his first interception of the season in the second quarter. That takeaway led to the offense's lone touchdown of the day.

In the third quarter, cornerback Tyrique Stevenson saved a potential Browns touchdown, intercepting a pass at the Chicago 1 and returning it to the 35.

The Bears now have 11 interceptions in the last four games.


Career TDs for Cole Kmet

Kmet's 5-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter marked his 15th career score and allowed him to take sole possession of fourth on the Bears all-time tight end TD list.

The fourth-year pro also surpassed 200 career catches; his five receptions Sunday now put him at 204. Kmet also passed Emery Moorehead for fourth on the franchise's tight end receiving list.


Unanswered points in the fourth quarter for Cleveland

The Bears held a 17-7 lead until the Browns scored a field goal with 12:31 to play in the game. Cleveland went on to score two more times – a touchdown and a field goal – while the Bears failed to capitalize on any of their five fourth-quarter drives.


Rushing yards allowed by Bears defense

Heading into Week 15, the Bears had the second-best rushing defense in the league, allowing an average of 83.7 yards per game.

The unit tied its best performance of the season as Cleveland rushed for just 29 yards, as they also allowed 29 yards on the ground to the Commanders Oct. 5.

Sunday's performance against the run marks the ninth time this season a Bears opponent has rushed for under 100 yards.


Browns with 100-yard receiving games

Amari Cooper and David Njoku recorded 109 and 104 receiving yards, respectively. Njoku's performance against the Bears is his first 100-yard game of the season.


Consecutive game holding opponent scoreless in the third quarter

The Bears defense has been playing at the top of its game in the third quarter as of late, continuing a five-game streak of not allowing a score.

In the third period against Cleveland, the defense recorded two interceptions and forced three straight punts, including two consecutive three-and-outs.
