Robert Quinn made Bears history with his 18th sack of the season, breaking Hall of Famer Richard Dent’s single-season sack record in his 15th game this season.
For most of Sunday’s game against the Giants, it appeared as if them abandoning the passing game was going to keep Quinn from even getting an opportunity to break the record.
But when you’re trailing by 26 points, eventually you have to start throwing the ball. Even if disaster awaited Mike Glennon every time he dropped back to pass.
After some close calls earlier in the game, Quinn finally got home to Glennon in the fourth quarter.
There hasn’t been much to love during this miserable season, but Quinn making history was something special for Bears fans to remember. Especially after Quinn looked like he was going to be a free-agent bust after last season before a remarkable comeback year.
Imagine someone telling you last off-season that Robert Quinn was going to break the Bears single season sack record.

Robert Quinn just broke the Bears single season sack record on Mike Glennon. He also once broke the Rams single season record on Mike Glennon.

Good for Robert Quinn. I was one of many who questioned the acquisition last year (I still think there's a real explanation there we didn't get) and have made sure this year to give him credit when it's due. It's every week and he's done his job and then some this year.

Going from 2 sacks to 18 sacks is one of the biggest year to year turnarounds I’ve ever seen

Robert Quinn breaks Richard Dent's #Bears single-season sack record. Matt Nagy calls timeout to allow the crowd to give Quinn the recognition he deserves. Pretty cool moment.

Robert Quinn has 18 sacks. He has broken Richard Dent's single-season #Bears record of 17.5 sacks.
Well deserved. What a season he's had!

ROBERT QUINN INSERTS HIS NAME INTO CHICAGO BEAR HISTORY

Best part of today’s Bears game? Robert Quinn breaks the all-time Bears single season sack record and does it in 16 games, forever removing the “yeah, but” from the discussion.
— Ken Mitchell (@WCGBearsDenDude) January 2, 2022
Robert Quinn went from being the most criticized Bears signing in 2020 to breaking the single season sack record in 2021.
