By the Numbers: Week 15


A look at how the Bears and Saints stack up, numerically, heading into their Week 15 contest.

-9: New Orleans' turnover differential on the season (13 takeaways, 22 giveaways).

5: Consecutive 'Monday Night Football' games the Bears have won at Soldier Field.

10: Yards Jay Cutler has run for each of his two rushing touchdowns this season, including his score in Week 14 against the Cowboys.

18.2: Yards per kickoff return by Bears opponents this season, second-fewest in the NFL.

20: Percentage of third downs converted by the Bears offense versus Dallas, the team's lowest in any game this season.

25.2: First downs per game for the Saints offense, which leads the league.

47.4: Percentage of third downs converted against the New Orleans defense, highest in the NFL.

65: Consecutive starts for Brandon Marshall, tied for the longest streak in the league among wide receivers. That streak will come to an end on Monday, as Marshall was placed on injured reserve last week with a rib and lung injury.

69.3: Completion percentage this season for Saints quarterback Drew Brees, highest in the NFL.

70: Different players who have seen game action for the Bears in 2014, the highest total in the NFL.

185: Regular season games the Bears went without recovering their own onside kick. Prior to the Week 14 contest against Dallas, when the team recovered Jay Feely's fourth-quarter onside kick, the most recent recovered onside kick by Chicago was on September 29, 2003.

218: Receiving yards for Alshon Jeffery versus the Saints on October 6, 2013. That was a team record until Jeffery gained 245 yards versus the Vikings later in the season.
