Take a look at some of the notable stats and numbers from the Bears' Week 6 game against the Minnesota Vikings:


Rushing yards for a third consecutive game

The Bears – who led the NFL in rushing yards last season – have found consistency in the ground game lately, including 162 yards against the Vikings. In their previous two games, the Bears recorded 171 yards against Denver and 178 against Washington.

Running back D'Onta Foreman led the attack Sunday with 65 yards on 15 carries, after previously playing in just one of the first five games this season. Darrynton Evans also stepped up and produced 32 yards on nine carries after signing with the Bears Monday.

Before exiting the game with an injury, quarterback Justin Fields rushed eight times for 46 yards.


First downs allowed by Bears defense in second half

After the Vikings scored on three possessions in the first half, the Bears' defense shut Minnesota's offense down in the final 30 minutes. Along with Minnesota picking up only two first downs, the Bears allowed just 58 yards of offense in the second half.

Minnesota's only second-half score came from its defense in the third quarter.


Made field goal by kicker Cairo Santos

The veteran recorded his longest field goal of this season in the second quarter. In the last two years, Santos is 6-of-7 on field goal attempts of 50 yards or more.

Santos' 53-yarder is his longest since Oct. 18, 2020, when he made a career-high 55-yard field goal for the Bears.


Career touchdown for backup quarterback Tyson Bagent

Bagent, who replaced Fields in the third quarter, capped off his first NFL touchdown drive with a 1-yard rush into the end zone. The score brought the Bears within 19-13 with under eight minutes to play in the game.

Bagent led the Bears down the field with back-to-back passes to receiver DJ Moore of 18 and 24 yards. The undrafted rookie also had an 11-yard completion to tight end Robert Tonyan on the drive.


Reception by receiver Darnell Mooney

Mooney recorded his longest play from scrimmage this season, hauling in a 39-yard deep ball from Fields in the second quarter.

The explosive play was the start of the Bears' second scoring drive.

Third-down efficiency by Bears defense

The Bears defense recorded its best third-down efficiency rate of the season, holding the Vikings to just two conversions on 13 attempts.


Blocked kick of the season by defensive end Rasheem Green

In his first season with the Bears, Green has found success on special teams. The veteran blocked an extra-point attempt after the Vikings scored a touchdown just before halftime.

Green previously blocked a field goal attempt in the Bears' Week 2 game in Tampa.
