Here are all the snap counts for the Chicago Bears, a spotlight on some of their individual stats, and also a few team statistics from their embarrassing 41 to 10 loss to the Detroit Lions.

There were only a handful of positive things that came out of that pitiful 41 to 10 Chicago Bears' loss, and they all came early on in the contest. The Detroit Lions walloped the Bears with 31 unanswered points after Chicago led 10 to 7 after the first quarter,

The Lions dominated in every aspect of the game with a 35:43 to 24:17 edge in time of possession, a 504 to 230 yardage advantage, a 26 to 9 first down edge, and they were better on third downs 33.3% to 23.1%. The Lions also won the turnover battle 2 to 0 and had fewer penalties (2 for 16 yards to 7 for 45 from Chicago).

The 504 yards the Bears gave up were the most they've allowed since 2018, when the Dolphins racked up 541 in a 31 to 28 overtime loss.

Now let's take a closer look at the playing time breakdowns for the Bears and also some individual stats.


While Justin Fields had 10 runs for 132 yards, he was harassed all afternoon as a passer and sacked 7 times. He only completed 7 of 21 for 75 yards, 1 touchdown, 1 interception, and a passer rating of 40.8.

Cole Kmet led the Bears in receiving with 2 receptions for 27 yards and a TD.

David Montgomery had 6 carries for 24 yards, and he caught 2 for 12 yards.

Khalil Herbert ran 5 times for 31 yards.


Joe Thomas had a tackle for loss, and he led the Bears with 12 tackles on defense while adding another tackle on special teams.

Jaquan Brisker had 8 tackles, and Kyler Gordon had 7.

Justin Jones had 6 tackles, a sack, and a TFL.

Mike Pennel Jr. had 4 tackles and 2 TFL.

Trevis Gipson had a tackle, a TFL, and a sack.
