Take a quick stroll down memory lane with PFW for a recap of the Bears' Week Six contests each of the last five seasons:
2009: A late touchdown by RB Michael Turner boosted the Falcons to a 21-14 win over the Bears. QB Jay Cutler threw for 300 yards and two touchdowns in the loss, but he also had two interceptions. Cutler led the team in rushing with 34 yards and RB Matt Forte was held to 23 yards on 15 carries. WR Devin Hester led all receivers with a 6-83-0 performance.
2008: Falcons PK Jason Elam hit a 48-yard field goal as time expired to bury the Bears 22-20. Elam had missed a 33-yard attempt earlier in the fourth quarter and Chicago responded with a touchdown pass from QB Kyle Orton to WR Rashied Davis. But Elam made the most of his second chance. Orton threw 43 passes in the game, completing 26 of them for 286 yards and a score.
2007: PK Ryan Longwell did the Bears in with a field goal, hitting a 55-yarder as time expired to send the Vikings to a 34-31 victory. QB Brian Griese threw a pair of fourth-quarter touchdown passes as the Bears attempted to rally, including an 81-yard toss to Hester that tied the game at 31. Griese threw for 381 yards in the contest and found WR Bernard Berrian five times for 78 yards and a TD.
2006: The Bears rallied from a 20-point deficit to defeat the Cardinals 24-23 on Monday night. Chicago won without a single offensive touchdown. Two defensive touchdowns and a special-teams TD helped the Bears remain undefeated. PK Robbie Gould put the Bears on the board with a 23-yard field goal in the third quarter, but then Arizona PK Neil Rackers hit a field goal of his own to put the Cardinals up by 20 again. S Mike Brown and CB Charles Tillman would score on a pair of fumble returns before an 83-yard punt return by Hester secured the Bears' victory.
2005: Former Bears PK Paul Edinger scored the first points of the game for the Vikings with a field goal, but Chicago went on to score 28 unanswered as it coasted to a 28-3 victory. TE Desmond Clark caught a pair of touchdown passes from Orton before RB Thomas Jones scored two TDs to extend the lead. MLB Brian Urlacher had two sacks and S Chris Harris and Tillman each had an interception.
