Sunday's game was Bucs' fourth shutout, their first since 1998 (35-0 over Cincinnati).
Chicago had not been shut out since 1989, 26-0 by San Francisco. That's 166 games, counting five playoff games.
The five turnovers forced by Bucs this season have led to 24 points. Last season, 31 led to 90 points.
The win ties the franchise mark for consecutive home wins (eight). Including last season's playoff win, the Bucs have won nine straight at Raymond James Stadium. They are 8-1 against the NFC Central at RJS.
The Bucs have won six straight and seven of eight vs. Chicago. The average margin in the wins: 16.4 points.
Tampa Bay is 7-for-7 inside the red zone, six touchdowns and one field goal.
The Bears were flagged three times for pass interference and once for defensive holding. The Bucs declined one interference call.
