Bears make NFL history by rushing for 225 yards in 5 straight games


(670 The Score) The Bears made history Sunday by surpassing the 225-yard rushing mark for the fifth consecutive game.

Chicago became the first team in NFL history to achieve that feat in five straight games, according to league research. The Bears rushed for 258 yards, led by quarterback Justin Fields’ 147 yards on the ground.
