The Chicago Bears defense made sure the fans who sat through the cold at this season’s Soldier Field finale on Sunday had a memorable game to watch, even if it was a meaningless one.
The Bears had four takeaways — including two in the first four minutes of the game — and a safety to fuel a 29-3 victory over the New York Giants.
Bears outside linebacker Robert Quinn had a strip-sack against former Bears quarterback Mike Glennon in the fourth quarter for his 18th sack this season — breaking the Bears’ record of 17 ½ set by Richard Dent in 1984.
Giants QB Mike Glennon, who was filling in for starter Daniel Jones, who has a neck injury, completed 4 of 11 passes for 24 yards and the two interceptions and was sacked four times.
Quinn’s sack also pushed him over 100 for his career. The Bears called timeout after the play, and Quinn was able to spend time hugging teammates while the Bears put the milestone on the video board.
