Where the Bears rank statistically after Week 9

The Chicago Bears (3-6) were defeated, 35-32, by the Miami Dolphins (6-3), where quarterback Justin Fields made NFL history.

Fields rushed for 178 yards, the most ever by a quarterback in the regular season, and accounted for 301 yards and four touchdowns. While the defense continues to struggle (with the departures of Roquan Smith and Robert Quinn), the offense is thriving. The Bears have averaged 31.3 points over the last three games.

Now that Week 9 is in the books, we now know how the Bears rank statistically compared to the rest of the NFL. Looking at the major metrics (courtesy of Team Rankings), here is where Chicago stands after nine games.
