The Chicago Bears are putting together a historic season with what could end up being the most potent rushing offense in NFL history.

Through 10 games, the Bears have accumulated 2,017 rushing yards on the year. Averaging 201.7 rush yards per game, Chicago is on track to blow past the current record set by the 2019 Baltimore Ravens (3,296).
If the Bears are able to maintain its average, Chicago is on track to finish the season with a record-setting 3,428 rushing yards.
Quarterback Justin Fields continues to drop jaws across the league, breaking off unfathomable runs to the endzone. On Sunday, Bears fans played witness to this 67-yard house call in the fourth quarter.
Fields finished the day with 147 yards on the ground and two touchdowns. He is the first Bears player to rush for at least 147 yards in back-to-back games since Walter Payton did it in 1984.
Running backs Khalil Herbert (643) and David Montgomery (434) have combined for 1,077 yards. The Bears have truly built a three-headed monster in the backfield.
All three players have played a direct role in helping the Bears become the first team in NFL history to record over 225 rushing yards in five straight games. The team is averaging 246 yards rushing over its last five games.
Bears fans would certainly appreciate to see the team tally a few more wins in such a historic stretch. On the bright side, for the first time in decades the Chicago Bears offense is must-watch television.
