3. Robert Quinn is chasing Chicago Bears history

What a difference just one year makes for Robert Quinn. Last season, it looked as though he was done. He looked nothing like the player he had been in recent years as he mustered up just 2.0 sacks in 2020.

This year, however, Quinn has totaled 12.0 sacks to this point and has five games to go. The Bears’ all-time single-season record for sacks is held by Richard Dent with 17.5. Of course, the extra game in 2021 helps Quinn’s cause, but wouldn’t it be sweet for Sunday night to be a signature performance in a record-breaking year?

In a season where the Bears have been underwhelming and the defense inconsistent, Quinn has a chance to do something special. This game is in prime time, at Lambeau Field, and against Aaron Rodgers. What more could you ask for?

Let’s say Quinn is able to finish with at least one sack, if not 1.5 or 2.0. That would easily put him on pace to break Dent’s record. Not only would breaking the record be meaningful, but knowing he had tallied multiple sacks on Rodgers would make it even sweeter. Quinn sacked Rodgers once in their meeting earlier this season, so be watching for yet another (or two) on Sunday night.
