Take a look at where the Bears stack up both as a team and individually in the NFL rankings heading into Week 4 action:

Team

  • Sack 'em up - The Bears rank first in the NFL in sacks (14) and sack yards (89). The Buccaneers gave up three sacks last week, and after not giving up a sack in Week 1, quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has been sacked five times in the last two weeks.
  • Got the force - The Bears' seven forced fumbles rank first in the league. Akiem Hicks and Khalil Mack each recorded a forced fumble against the Cardinals last week.
  • Three downs you're out - The Bears are tied for first in the NFL with 11 three-and-outs.
  • Don't rush - The Bears rank second in the NFL in fewest rushing yards allowed per game, giving up an average of just 65.3. Last week Chicago gave up just 53 rush yards in their win. Meanwhile, the Buccaneers have the third fewest rush yards on the season with 218. The Bears are also one of just three teams in the league to not allow a rushing touchdown or a rush of more than 20 yards.
  • Pick 'em off - The Bears are tied for third in the league with five interceptions. Last week the team tallied three picks. Arizona threw three interceptions last week in their loss to the Steelers.
  • Ball control - The Bears rank second in the NFL in time of possession with an average of 34:42. They held onto the ball for 36:21 in last Sunday's win over the Cardinals. 

Individuals

  • Mack Attack - Linebacker Khalil Mack is tied for first in the NFL with four sacks and leads the league with three forced fumbles. Mack is tied for second in the league with 10 quarterback hurries. He's recorded a sack and a forced fumble in each game this year and was also the last player to accomplish this feat, doing so in 2016.
  • Pick em off, pick 'em up - Defensive back Eddie Jackson is one of just two NFL players since the 2017 season to have three interceptions and three fumble recoveries.
  • On Target - Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky ranks fifth in the NFC with a .692 completion percentage. He went 24-35 against the Cardinals in Week 3.
  • Kick 'em with your best shot - Kicker Cody Parkey is 7 of 8 on field goals this year. His seven makes are tied for second best in the league, and he's fourth in kick scoring with 27 points.
