Here's a look at the Bears by the numbers as they prepare to host the Eagles on Sunday at Soldier Field in their first-round playoff game (3:40 p.m., NBC).

Against the Vikings

2006: Before Sunday, the last time the Bears reached the 12-win mark. They were 13-3 that season. Their 5-1 NFC North record is their best since 2010.

1,280: Rushing yards allowed by the Bears this season, a franchise record. The previous record was 1,313 yards allowed in 2001.


11: Times the Bears scored 24 or more points this season, the most since they did it in 11 games in 1995.


3: Straight games without an interception for quarterback Mitch Trubisky, the longest stretch of his career. The streak came after he threw three interceptions against the Rams in Week 14.


57: Percent conversion rate on third down against the Vikings (8-for-14). The Vikings entered with the league's best third-down defense.


109: Rushing yards for running back Jordan Howard on Sunday, a season high.


27: Offensive snaps played by right guard Kyle Long, who returned to the starting lineup after being activated off injured reserve following a right foot/ankle injury.


10: Kicks missed by Cody Parkey this season -- seven field goals and three extra points. He missed a PAT on Sunday.

1: Active head coach to have a 12-4 record in his first year. Matt Nagy surpassed the 11-5 records the Rams' Sean McVay and the Ravens' John Harbaugh had in their first seasons.


Looking ahead to the Eagles

2001: The last time the Bears and Eagles played in the postseason. The Eagles won 33-19. This will be their fourth playoff meeting, with the only Bears win coming in the 1988 "Fog Bowl."


25: Straight completions by Eagles quarterback Nick Foles on Sunday against the Redskins. That tied an NFL record held by Philip Rivers and Ryan Tannehill. A week earlier, he broke the Eagles franchise record by throwing for 471 yards against the Texans.


113.2: Foles' postseason passer rating, best in NFL history among quarterbacks with at least 125 attempts.


116: Catches this season by Zach Ertz, the most by a tight end in NFL history. He broke Jason Witten's record of 110 from 2012. It's also second overall this season to Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas' 125 catches.


25: Eagles' NFL ranking with a minus-6 turnover differential. The Bears rank third at plus-12.


44.6: Touchdown percentage in the red zone against the Eagles defense, the lowest in the NFL. The Eagles rank sixth on third down, allowing a 35.3 percent conversion rate.


83.9: Percentage of field goals made this season by Jake Elliott, who is from La Grange and went to Lyons. In each of his first two seasons, he made 26 of 31 attempts. He made all seven of his field-goal attempts in the playoffs last year but missed two extra-point attempts.


44 1/2 : Career sacks for defensive tackle Fletcher Cox, the most in Eagles history by an interior defensive lineman. He has 10 1/2 this season.


Around the NFL

7: Playoff teams out of 12 that didn't make the postseason last year: the Ravens, Bears, Cowboys, Texans, Colts, Chargers and Seahawks.


29: Straight seasons in which at least four teams have qualified for the postseason that did not make it a year earlier.


50: Touchdown passes for Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes after he threw two in Week 17. Only Peyton Manning and Tom Brady had thrown at least 50 touchdown passes in a season.


27: Touchdown passes by Browns rookie Baker Mayfield. He surpassed Manning and Russell Wilson for the most by a rookie in the common draft era.


4: Seasons in which Texans defensive end J.J. Watt has recorded at least 15 sacks. He had 16 this season.


13: Touchdown passes thrown by non-quarterbacks, the most in a season since there were 15 in 1983.
