By the Numbers: Bears' Week 16 win over Cardinals


Check out some of the notable stats and numbers from the Bears' 27-16 victory over the Arizona Cardinals at Soldier Field:


Receiving yards for Cole Kmet

The fourth-year pro had his first career 100-yard game Sunday, catching four passes for 107 yards, all in the first half, before missing the entire second half with a knee injury.

Kmet set a new career high for receiving yards in a game, surpassing his 87-yard performance on Nov. 8, 2021 in Pittsburgh.

On the first play of the Bears' second drive, Justin Fields connected with Kmet for a 53-yard reception, the longest catch of the tight end's career. It's also the second longest pass play for the Bears this season.


Kmet's receiving yards this season

Kmet's career performance also led to a new career-best for most receiving yards in a season. His previous best was 612 yards in 2021.


Rushing yards for Khalil Herbert

The third-year pro had his best rushing game of the season, surpassing a previous season-high of 103 yards Oct. 1 against the Broncos.

His 112 yards on 20 carries also mark the fourth time he's rushed for 100 yards or more in his career.


Rushing yards by Bears offense

The Bears reached a season-high in rushing yards, eclipsing their previous best — 183 yards Nov. 19 against Detroit.

While Herbert led the charge, Fields followed close behind with 97 rushing yards on nine carries. The quarterback had his longest carry of the season with a 39-yard run in the fourth quarter.

Rookie Roschon Johnson also added 37 yards.


Career sack for Kyler Gordon

With one minute to go in the third quarter, Gordon blitzed and sacked Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray for a loss of eight yards.

Gordon's first career sack led to a three-and-out by the Bears defense.


Game this season Bears have allowed less than 100 rushing yards

The defense continued to dominate in the run game, allowing less than 100 rushing yards for the 10th time this year.

The Bears held Arizona running back James Conner to 45 yards, his second-lowest total of the season.


Starts for Marcedes Lewis

Lewis passed Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers for the most starts by an active player Sunday at Soldier Field.

Lewis is one of only three tight ends in NFL history to start 200-plus regular season games and post 400-plus receptions (435), joining Tony Gonzalez and Jason Witten. Lewis also ranks first in games played (266) among active players.

Along with reaching that milestone, Lewis scored for the first time this season, catching a 1-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter to put the Bears up 21-0 – his 40th career TD.


Punt by Trenton Gill recorded a career-long 76-yard punt to the end zone in the second quarter, topping his previous career-high of 63 yards last Christmas Eve against Buffalo.
