Take a look at some of the stats and numbers that stood out in the Bears' preseason finale against the Bills Saturday at Soldier Field:

40-yard

Catch by receiver DJ Moore.

In both preseason games he played, Moore was responsible for that contest's longest play from scrimmage. On Saturday, quarterback Justin Fields connected with Moore around midfield before the receiver broke free from multiple Bills defenders, picking up 14 yards after the catch.

The 40-yard play marked Moore's second reception of the preseason. While the receiver did not appear against the Colts last Saturday, he played three snaps versus the Titans Aug. 12 and took a short screen pass 62 yards for a touchdown.

Takeaways by the Bears defense.

Rookie cornerback Tyrique Stevenson recorded his first NFL interception, picking off Bills backup quarterback Kyle Allen at the Chicago 16 with 3:01 left in the first quarter, leading to a 34-yard field goal by kicker Cairo Santos.

Late in the second quarter, defensive end Trevis Gipson had a strip-sack against Allen and rookie linebacker Noah Sewell recovered the fumble at the Buffalo 26. The fumble recovery marked Sewell's first takeaway in the NFL.

56-yard

Kickoff return by rookie receiver Tyler Scott.

With 5:39 remaining in the second quarter, Scott took his third kickoff return of the day 56 yards to the Buffalo 42. Catching the kick at the Chicago 2, Scott showcased his speed as he ran right then sprinted up the field, causing multiple Bills defenders to miss.

Scott returned three kickoffs Saturday for 96 yards. The rookie also served as the Bears punter returner twice Saturday and secured fair catches on both. While Scott didn't return punts in college, he returned six kicks at Cincinnati, with a high of 40 yards.

The Bears had one kickoff return over 56 yards last season when Velus Jones Jr. took a kick 63 yards against Detroit in Week 17.

6

Drives played by backup quarterback Tyson Bagent.

After his standout performance last week in Indianapolis, Bagent served as the Bears' second-string quarterback against the Bills. He relieved Fields in the middle of the Bears' third offensive possession and played the ensuing five series. In the previous two preseason games, Bagent played a combined five drives.

Bagent was also responsible for the Bears' lone first-half touchdown as he scrambled eight yards into the end zone late in the second quarter. The score marks his second rushing TD of the preseason, as he rushed for a 2-yard score against the Colts last Saturday.

51-yard

Field goal by Santos.

Santos' field goal pulled the Bears within four points at 17-13 late in the third quarter. The 51-yarder comes on the heels of Santos' 50-yard field goal against the Colts last week.

Throughout his first nine NFL seasons, Santos has made five field goals from at least 51 yards out, including one against the Vikings last Oct. 9.

At least 100 rushing yards

By the Bears offense in each of the three preseason games.

Against Buffalo, the Bears offense recorded 107 rushing yards. Eight different players carried the ball. Bagent led the way with 23 yards on four carries while rookie running back Roschon Johnson had a team-high nine carries.

Johnson, who rushed for 22 yards Saturday, totaled 28 carries for 98 yards in his first NFL preseason.
