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

They may have lost to the Vikings, but the Chicago Bears escaped Minnesota with no major injuries.

The core of this team will head into the offseason and with a new coaching staff in place, and look to duplicate the worst to first jump that two other teams made this season.

There is some talent on this team and they aren’t as far off as you may expect. It’s all about the development of Mitchell Trubisky, and if he takes the expected year one to year two jump, the Bears should be a big surprise next year.

The Bears only converted one third down, going 1 for 12 on the day. They were outgained 327 to 201, and they also lost the time of possession 35:55 to 24:05.

Penalties were huge for both teams. The Bears were hit with 10 for 116 yards and the Vikings were flagged 12 times for 103.

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

Play action proved to be effective for the Bears' offense. Mitchell Trubisky went 7-of-10 for 75 yards on passes with play action, as opposed to just 13-of-26 for 94 yards without it.

Also from PFF:

The Bears defense pressured Vikings quarterback Case Keenum on 10 of his 31 drop backs, despite defensive coordinator Vic Fangio dialing up the blitz on 11 plays. Keenum was 16-of-21 from a clean pocket, as opposed to 5-of-8 while under pressure.

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?
