By the Numbers: Bears' Week 17 win over Falcons


Check out some of the notable stats and numbers from the Bears' 37-17 victory over the Atlanta Falcons at Soldier Field:


Number of receiving yards by DJ Moore on nine catches, increasing the six-year pro's season total to 1,300 yards, a career high. Moore's previous high was 1,193 in 2020 when he played for the Panthers. His 1,300 yards are the fifth most in Bears history, trailing Brandon Marshall (1,508 in 2012), Alshon Jeffery (1,421 in 2013), Marcus Robinson (1,400 in 1999) and Jeff Graham (1,301 in 1995).

Moore also caught his eighth touchdown pass of the season Sunday, eclipsing the seven he recorded last year while playing for Carolina as his career high.


Number of points the Bears won by, matching a 40-20 Thursday night victory over Washington Oct. 5 as their most lopsided win of the season. The 37 points the Bears scored Sunday were their second most of the year.


Number of consecutive home wins by the Bears, who have defeated the Raiders, Panthers, Lions, Cardinals and Falcons in their last five contests at Soldier Field. It's the first time they've won five straight home games since 2018, when we they captured the NFC North title with a 12-4 record.


Number of interceptions by the Bears defense. It was the only the third time the Bears have picked off at least four passes in a game since 2012. They also had four interceptions in a 15-6 win over the Rams Dec. 9, 2018, at Soldier Field and in a 12-10 victory over the Vikings five weeks ago in Minnesota. The Bears now have 22 interceptions this season, the most in the NFL, one more than the 49ers.


Number of touchdowns by the Bears offense, matching a season high. It was the third time this season the offense scored four TDs, accomplishing the feat in a 31-28 loss to the Broncos Oct. 1 and in the Oct. 5 rout of the Commanders.


Number of yards rushing by the Bears. They've produced their top two rushing performances of the season in their last two games, compiling 192 yards against the Falcons after gaining 250 yards last Sunday in a 27-16 win over the Cardinals at Soldier Field.


Number of consecutive games played by tight end Cole Kmet to start his career. Despite being questionable on the injury report with a knee issue, Kmet played sparingly Sunday. He has not missed a game since being selected by the Bears in the second round of the 2020 draft out of Notre Dame.


Number of turnovers by the Bears. They are now 5-0 this season when committing no turnovers and 2-9 when they have at least one. In winning their last five home games, the Bears have committed a total of just one turnover.


Number of touchbacks recorded by Trenton Gill on eight kickoffs. On a snowy Sunday at Soldier Field, Gill handled kickoff duties instead of Cairo Santos. As a result, Cordarrelle Patterson, who holds the NFL record with nine kickoff return touchdowns, did not have any opportunities in the return game.


Number of days remaining in 2023. Wishing everyone reading this a very happy new year!
