MINNEAPOLIS – Take a look at some of the notable stats and numbers from the Bears' Week 12 victory over the Minnesota Vikings:

4

Interceptions by the Bears defense

For the first time since Dec. 9, 2018, the Bears defense picked off four passes in a game. The unit has eight takeaways in the last two games and has now produced three games with 3+ interceptions this season.

Two of the INTs of Vikings quarterback Joshua Dobbs came in the second quarter on back-to-back possessions. Cornerback Jaylon Johnson started the trend, leaping high to snag a throw intended for receiver Jordan Addison. Safety Jaquan Brisker then laid out to pick off a pass that deflected off Addison, marking his first interception of the season.

In the third quarter as the Vikings were driving into Bears territory, linebacker T.J. Edwards intercepted a tipped ball on fourth down. Edwards also accounted for one of the INTs last week in Detroit. Nickel back Kyler Gordon recorded the final interception, hauling in a pass tipped by defensive tackle Justin Jones.

36-yard

Pass from Justin Fields to DJ Moore to set up game-winning field goal

When they needed it the most, Fields and Moore showed off their connection on a 36-yard in-breaking route with 55 seconds left in the game.

The explosive play, which set up Cairo Santos' 30-yard game-winning field goal, marked the longest play from scrimmage Monday night.

55-yard

Field goal by Santos

The 10-year pro tied his career-high by connecting on the 55-yarder to put the Bears up 9-3 at the start of the fourth quarter. It marks Santos' sixth make of 50+ yards this season, the most of his career.

100th

Field goal as a Bear for Santos

With four field goals Monday night, Santos hit another career milestone this season by cracking the century mark in Chicago. He has now made 101 field goals as a Bear.

Two weeks ago in a win over Carolina, Santos reached 200 career field goals.

10

Points allowed by Bears defense

The Bears defense continued its strong play of late, allowing their fewest points in a game this season.

In the first half, the Vikings managed just 76 total yards of offense as the defense stopped them on all four third-down attempts.

While the Vikings took the lead late in the game with a fourth-quarter touchdown drive, the defense forced a three-and-out on the next possession to set up the game-winning drive.

114

Receiving yards for Moore in the game

Moore caught 11 of his 13 targets in the game, including the 36-yarder on the final drive, with 73 of those 114 yards coming after the catch.

Monday also marked the fourth time this season and 19th time in Moore's career that he has recorded 100+ yards in a game.

1000+

Receiving yards for Moore on the season

With his 114 yards Monday night, Moore is up to 1,003 yards on the season and has eclipsed the 1,000 yard mark in four of the last five seasons.

3

Consecutive primetime wins for Fields

Fields has now won his last three primetime starts, all coming on the road.

The last Bears quarterback to win 3 straight primetime games on the road was Rex Grossman in 2006.

9

Quarterback hits on Dobbs

The Bears put the pressure on the Vikings QB, hitting him nine times while recording 2.0 sacks, both of which featured defensive end Montez Sweat.

Sweat got to Dobbs on Minnesota's first possession to set the tone, causing a loss of eight yards and setting up fourth-and-17. In the third quarter, Sweat and Brisker combined for a sack on first down; that drive led to a turnover on downs.

Defensive end DeMarcus Walker led the Bears with three quarterback hits.

3

Points off takeaways by the Bears

While the defense generated four takeaways, the Bears offense scored after just one of them.

Following Edwards' third-quarter interception, Santos connected on the 55-yard field goal.

75

Total yards by Roschon Johnson

The rookie running back excelled in the passing and running games, catching five passes for a career-high 40 yards and rushing 10 times for 35 yards.

On the Bears second drive of the game, Johnson totaled 34 yards, including a 22-yard catch, helping the Bears open the scoring.
