All statistics and snap counts are taken directly from the NFL's Game Statistic and Information System.

I hope all you guys are having a wonderful Christmas and Santa has made all of your dreams come true!

The Chicago Bears had the chance to play in some honest to goodness Bear weather and they came out on top against an awful Cleveland Browns team. But a win is a win, and that’s all that matters with this young Bears team.

The Bears had more first downs (16 to 12), more yards (258 to 253), more on the time of possession (33:14 to 26:46), and they even had fewer penalties (4 for 25 yards to 8 for 60 yards).

Now on to the snap counts and some other stats for the Bears

All snap counts will be in the following format:
Player - Total O or D snaps (%) - Total ST snaps (%)

QB

M Trubisky - 64 (100%)

Mitchell Trubisky has now passed for the most yards as a rookie in the history of the Bears franchise (2,015).

On Sunday he threw for 193 yards on 14 of 23 passing, for a passer rating of 87.8. HE also ran for 44 yards on 7 runs, including a TD.

The blitzes seemed to bother him, but I also didn’t see the play calling helping him out with any quick hot reads. According to Pro Football Focus, “he was blitzed on 18 of his 32 total drop backs, going just 5-of-13 for 97 yards with one scramble and four sacks for a passer rating of just 65.2. When Cleveland didn't bring the heat, Trubisky went 9-of-10 for 97 yards, good for a 107.1 passer rating.”

The Bears started to incorporate some screens in the second half which caught the Browns blitzing.

Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio was content to onlyt rush four on most plays, and PFF had them down for only 9 blitzes.

Also from PFF. “the Bears' pass-rush got after Browns quarterback DeShone Kizer. He was under pressure on 18 of his 40 drop backs, going 5-of-15 for 105 yards and two interceptions - a passer rating of just 19.4.”

For more numbers, the ESPN box score and team stats are both pretty good ones to check out for all of the game’s statistics.

Did any of these numbers stand out to you guys?
