By the Numbers: Broncos vs. Bears | 2023 Week 4


Take a look at some of the notable numbers and stats from the Bears' Week 4 game against the Broncos at Soldier Field:


Consecutive completions by quarterback Justin Fields

Fields broke the franchise record for most consecutive completions by a Bears quarterback Sunday. The record was previously held by Shane Matthews who completed 15 straight passes Dec. 10, 2000, against the Patriots.

Fields' 16th completion was a 9-yard pass to tight end Robert Tonyan with under a minute to go in the first half. The Bears QB racked up 231 passing yards in the first 30 minutes against the Broncos, with his only incompletion coming on a Hail Mary at the end of the half.

Fields finished Sunday's game with an 80 percent completion rate and reached career highs with 28 completions and 335 yards. Fields' previous career highs were 26 completions in Week 1 against Green Bay and 291 yards Nov. 8, 2021, against the Steelers in Pittsburgh.


Passing touchdowns by Fields

Fields threw four touchdown passes for the first time in his three-year NFL career Sunday. Fields previously had a career-high of three passing TDs, which he accomplished Nov. 6, 2022, against the Dolphins at Soldier Field.

In that matchup with Miami last season, tight end Cole Kmet caught two of those passes. On Sunday against Denver, Kmet also hauled in two of Fields' TD throws.


Second-half points by the Broncos

After the Bears allowed just seven first-half points, Denver came back in the second half with three touchdowns–including one defensive score–and a field goal.


Career game with 2 TDs for Kmet

Kmet hauled in two of the Bears' three touchdowns on back-to-back possessions in the first half Sunday. Kmet's first score was a 22-yard reception as Fields found the tight end wide open up the middle.

The fourth-year pro then caught a 3-yard TD pass from Fields after the QB rolled right, scrambled toward the sideline and connected with Kmet, who was standing open in the end zone.


Explosive plays by Bears offense

The Bears offense highlighted its playmaking ability with nine explosive plays – either a pass that gained 20+ yards or a rush that gained 10+ yards.

Fields connected with DJ Moore for three of those plays, with completions of 29, 24 and 24 yards. Kmet caught two 22-yard passes and receiver Equanimeous St. Brown hauled in a 21-yard reception. Running back Khalil Herbert recorded rushes of 24 and 21 yards and Fields scrambled for a 20-yard gain.


Unanswered points by the Bears in the second quarter

Fields threw touchdowns on three consecutive drives in the second period. The first two scores – passes to Moore and Kmet — came with 3:04 of each other.

The Bears defense forced the Broncos to punt on all three of their second-quarter drives. They also held Denver to just 51 yards of offense and two first downs.


Receiving yards by Moore

The star receiver notched his second 100-yard game as a Bear and the 17th of his career.

Moore tied Kmet with a team-leading nine targets on Sunday and caught eight of those passes, averaging 16.4 yards per reception.
