Bears Giants Football

The Bears' Tarik Cohen avoids a tackle attempt by the Giants' Nate Stupar while returning a punt in the first half of Sunday's game in East Rutherford, N.J. Cohen had a good day receiving and even threw a touchdown pass in Chicago's 30-27 loss in overtime.

Here's a look at the Bears by the numbers as they prepare to host the Rams on Sunday at Soldier Field (7:20 p.m., NBC).

Against the Giants

75.3: Passer rating for Chase Daniel against the Giants. He completed 26 of 39 passes for 285 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions.

5: Giants sacks against Daniel, the most allowed by the Bears this season. His four fumbles were also the most by an NFL player this season, and the Bears' six fumbles overall were a season high.

17: Days since quarterback Mitch Trubisky injured his right shoulder against the Vikings. He has missed the last two games as Daniel started.

156: Receiving yards by Tarik Cohen on Sunday, a career high and the most by a Bears running back since at least 1960. His 186 yards from scrimmage also marked a career high.

2012: Before this season, the last time a Bears player had six or more interceptions in a season. Kyle Fuller recorded his sixth Sunday. Tim Jennings had nine in 2012.

141: Rushing yards allowed by the Bears defense on Sunday, 125 from rookie Saquon Barkley. It's the second most they've allowed this season, behind only the 161 by the Dolphins.

2001: Before Sunday, the last time a Bears defensive player scored an offensive touchdown -- Brian Urlacher's 27-yard catch from punter Brad Maynard against the Redskins. Akiem Hicks scored his first career rushing touchdown, the first defensive lineman to do so in the regular season since William Perry did it twice in 1985.

2: Teams to hold a second-half lead in every game so far this season -- the Bears and the Chiefs.

Looking ahead to the Rams

439.9: Yards per game for the Rams, ranked second in the NFL. They also rank in the top three in yards per play (third, 6.71) and points per game (tied for second, 34.9).

10: Points per game scored by Rams running back Todd Gurley. He is the NFL rushing leader with 1,175 yards on 233 carries and 15 touchdowns. He also has four receiving touchdowns.

10: Draft position where the Rams picked Gurley in the first round in 2015. The Bears took wide receiver Kevin White at No. 7 that year.

16 1/2 : Sacks by Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald, who has six multi-sack games. The Rams have 33 sacks this season. Khalil Mack leads the Bears with nine sacks.

109.9: Passer rating for Rams quarterback Jared Goff, who has completed 275 of 414 passes for 3,754 yards, 27 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

4: Consecutive seasons of more than 1,000 receiving yards for Rams wide receiver Brandin Cooks. He is the first player in NFL history to have three straight 1,000-yard receiving seasons with three teams -- the Saints, Patriots and Rams.

11: Turnover margin for the Rams this season, tied for second behind the Bears, who have a plus-12 turnover margin. The Rams have 22 takeaways this season.

22: Career victories for Rams coach Sean McVay over two seasons. He has six losses.

1: Victory needed by the Rams on Sunday to clinch a first-round playoff bye.

Around the NFL

1: Team to have clinched a playoff berth so far -- the 11-1 Rams. The 9-3 Texans, 9-3 Patriots and 10-2 Saints can clinch division titles this week.

30: Teams still technically in playoff contention entering Week 14.

579: Career touchdown passes for Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, including the postseason, tied with Peyton Manning for the most in NFL history.

41: Touchdown passes by Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes this season. He has seven games with at least four touchdown passes this season, second only behind Manning's nine in 2013.

3: Interceptions by Buccaneers safety Andrew Adams against the Panthers. He is the fifth NFL player since 2010 to record at least three interceptions in one game.

9: Consecutive games won by the Texans, the first team in league history to start the season 0-3 and follow with nine straight victories.
