Leading up to the Bears' overtime field goal attempt Sunday, uber-accurate kicker Robbie Gould had made 157 of 166 kicks of 40 yards or fewer, good for an essentially automatic 94.6 percent. From 47 yards and out, he hit 31 of 49 - only 63.3 percent. These are stats that make sense to an average NFL fan, and they certainly should be known to the Bears' coaching staff. Those extra 7 yards represented a 30 percent increase in success, and the Bears had just driven 24 yards in five plays against a porous Vikings defense.

When you get to this stage of the fantasy football season, knowing statistics is of the utmost importance. That said, now is the time when you need to focus on matchups based on stats. So here are few tips to follow the rest of the way. Play your running backs against the Bears You don't need to be a Harvard scholar to know the Bears are really bad at stopping the run. The statistics show the Bears have the worst run defense in all of football. Just look at the great games by Brandon Jacobs (looking like an All-Pro)

The Bears needed more Sunday. More offense. More luck. More guys off the street to play for this depleted defense. More of anything that would help them beat Minnesota and keep them tied for first in the NFC North. So much for that. Instead of taking advantage of a lousy Minnesota team, the Bears lost 23-20 in a game that defied belief. The Bears blew a 10-point lead in the fourth quarter, which was bad enough. To make matters worse, the sure-footed Robbie Gould missed a 47-yard field goal that would have ended the game in overtime.

While we're all busy breaking up the Bulls, let's break up the Bears, too. We're good at that around here, breaking teams up before they win anything. But before that, we say goodbye to the Metrodome. If there ever was a facility that won't be missed by the Bag, this is the one. Never liked the noise, turf, people, roof, that silly horn and, of course, the teams. Twins and Vikings, both hated. Here are my Top 5 moments: 1. Sept. 19, 1985: Jim McMahon throws three TDs off the bench.

A painful loss for the Chicago Bears on Sunday was felt literally for a couple of fans in Edison Park.  A video titled only "WILSON WRECK" was posted to YouTube on Sunday, after the Bears fell hard to the St. Louis Rams 41-21. The video's description only notes a footrace between "Joe" and "Anth" is about to occur. Shortly after "go" is called between the two participants, both wearing Bears jerseys, one of the racers loses his balance and hits a parking sign. Hard.  The video doesn't state the exact location, but through some Internet detective work, we can say pretty definitively it appears to have occured outside The Emerald Isle in Edison Park.

Are any other Bears fans out there feeling worn down by the weekly onslaught of digital activity during Sunday football? I can't be the only one. In the past few years I've started watching games with my computer open, checking scores and stats despite being retired from fantasy football since 2007. Then last year - and this is the part that grew addictive - I added Twitter. Now, instead of dealing with just the cacophonous chaos of an NFL broadcast, I interact with a bajillion other voices and opinions.

The Bears are still in first place in the NFC North. That's how an optimist would see the Bears' situation after a 42-21 loss at St. Louis on Sunday. It all kind of falls apart from there, however. Yes, Detroit lost to Tampa Bay on Sunday, so the Bears and Lions are both 6-5. But considering Detroit holds the tiebreaker by virtue of beating the Bears twice this year, it's tough to get overly excited. Besides, there were so many other reasons to think this season has gone from bad to worse.

Just call them good-guy Chicago Bears.  After several players traveled to tornado ravaged towns in downstate Illinois on Monday, the Peoria Journal Star reports the team will again be showing support in their game in St. Louis on Sunday.  According to the report, the team has reached out to the Washington High School athletics department, asking to be sent a logo for Bears team members to wear on t-shirts in pre- and postgame press...

The Baltimore Ravens were safely hunkered down in the locker room, but Sunday's storm didn't stop one fan from taking the field for his team.  In a video posted to Facebook Sunday, a fan wearing a Terrell Suggs jersey rushes down from the north concourse, hops a railing and runs onto the field to loud cheers. Three security guards take the field to give chase, and he's taken out of bounds (and likely into custody) around the 50-yard line.  "HOLY SHIT," the post by Matt Marquardt on Facebook reads.
