Chicago has won five of the last six matchups between these teams, with the most recent game resulting in a 37-13 Bears victory in 2015. The last postseason game between them came in 1985 when the Bears rolled over the Rams, 24-0, in the NFC Championship Game on their way to a Super Bowl title.

The Rams became the first team in the NFL to clinch their division this season with a 30-16 win at Detroit. It is the first time that the franchise has won its division in consecutive seasons since a streak of seven straight NFC West titles from 1973-1979.

The Bears' five-game winning streak was snapped with a 30-27 loss to the Giants. Chicago converted just 13.3 percent (2-of-15) of its third-down attempts, which tied the lowest percentage in a single game by any team this season (minimum 15 attempts).

Chicago leads the NFL with a +12 turnover differential, while the Rams are tied for second with the Seahawks with a +11 mark. The Rams are 6-0 this season when winning the turnover battle, and the Bears are 5-2 when doing so.

Todd Gurley II ran for 132 yards and two TDs last week. Since he entered the league in 2015, Gurley has 12 games with multiple rushing TDs, four more than any other player. He's the first player with 1600+ yards from scrimmage and 19+ scrimmage touchdowns through 13 weeks of a season since LaDainian Tomlinson in 2006.

Tarik Cohen had 12 catches for 156 yards and also threw for a touchdown in Chicago's loss to the Giants. He joined Jerry Rice as the only players in NFL history with 150 yards receiving, 12 receptions and a touchdown pass in a single game.
