The St. Louis Rams [4-4] will look to stay in the race for the NFC West lead - and a playoff berth - this Sunday as they host the Chicago Bears [3-5] at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis.  Including playoffs, this matchup will mark the 92nd time these teams have faced off in their franchise’s history.  The Bears own the series lead with a 51-35-3 record.

The Bears have won four out of the last five against the Rams. The Rams, however, won the last matchup - played on Nov. 24, 2013 - with a 42-21 score.  In that games, Rams’ running backs Benny Cunningham and Zac Stacy combined for 196 rushing yards and two touchdowns. Defensive end Robert Quinn had a 31-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown as well.

Bears’ head coach John Fox is 4-2 all-time against the Rams.  Rams’ HC Jeff Fisher boasts a 2-4 all-time record against the Bears.

The Rams and Bears squared off in the NFC Championship game on January 12, 1986...a game featuring the infamous ’85 Bears’ defense...which Jeff Fisher played on.  Fisher didn’t play in the game due to an ankle injury that had him sidelined for the year.  The Bears went on to win that game 24-0 against the L.A. Rams, and ultimately earned Jeff Fisher a Super Bowl Ring.
