Take a quick stroll down memory lane with PFW for a recap of the Bears' Week 12 contests each of the last five seasons:

2009: The Bears were overpowered by QB Brett Favre and the Viking in a 36-10 loss. After a scoreless first quarter, Minnesota got on the board with a 15-yard pass from Favre to WR Percy Harvin. But Chicago answered, as QB Jay Cutler found WR Johnny Knox for a 24-yard score to even things up. The Bears wouldn't find pay dirt again, though, and the Vikings cruised to an easy victory.

2008: RB Matt Forté rushed for 139 yards on 21 carries in the Bears' 27-3 victory in St. Louis. Forté did his damage in the first half, scoring on runs of 13 and 47 yards to help Chicago to a 24-3 halftime lead. The defense was strong throughout the day, recording five sacks and four interceptions.

2007: An overtime field goal from PK Robbie Gould gave the Bears a 37-34 victory over the Broncos. Chicago had trailed by 14 with just over five minutes remaining before RB Adrian Peterson scored on a four-yard run to cut the deficit to seven. QB Rex Grossman then hooked up with WR Bernard Berrian for a three-yard score with 28 seconds left to send the game to OT.

2006: The Bears fell 17-13 to the Patriots, but they didn't go down without a fight. Trailing for much of the game, Chicago finally tied it at 10 with a two-yard touchdown score from RB Cedric Benson in the fourth quarter. But New England answered with a TD of its own to retake the lead, and all the Bears could respond with was a field goal. Grossman threw three interceptions in the game and all of the picks were made by Patriots CB Asante Samuel.

2005: TE John Gilmore was the only Bears player to score a touchdown in Chicago's 13-10 win over Tampa Bay. Gould hit a pair of field goals to extend the Bears' lead while RB Thomas Jones controlled the pace on the ground with 25 carries for 72 yards. In a game mostly dominated by the defense, DEs Adewale Ogunleye and Alex Brown each had a pair of sacks.
