On Dec. 18 at Soldier Field, the Chicago Bears (3-11) fell to the playoff-bound Philadelphia Eagles (13-1) 25-20.

It was the Bears' seventh straight loss—their worst skid since dropping eight in a row in 2002 to match a franchise record, ESPN reported.

Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts tied a career high by running for three touchdowns. However, Chicago quarterback Justin Fields ran for 95 yards to reach exactly 1,000 on the season, joining Michael Vick and Lamar Jackson as the only quarterbacks to rush for 1,000 or more.

On Christmas Eve, the Bears will play another of the top teams in the NFL when they host the Buffalo Bills at noon. The game will air on CBS.

—At the United Center on Dec. 18, the Chicago Blackhawks lost to the New York Rangers 7-1 as Chicago's Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews played their 1,000th game together.

The Rangers have not lost since a 5-2 defeat at home to the Blackhawks on Dec. 3, ESPN noted. Chicago has lost seven straight since then and is 1-14-1 since mid-November.

Artemi Panarin had a goal and two assists, and Igor Shesterkin stopped 29 shots for New York. Philipp Kurashev scored for Chicago and Arvid Soderblom finished with 19 saves.

Chicago will next host the Nashville Predators on Wed., Dec. 21, at 7:30 p.m.

—In an NBA game with no defense, the Minnesota Timberwolves (15-15) rolled over the visiting Chicago Bulls (11-18) 150-126 on Dec. 18.

The Timberwolves (who were missing four regulars) broke the franchise record for points in a game, ESPN reported.

Starting a four-game trip, Chicago lost its fourth straight and sixth in eight games. It is the fourth-most points the Bulls have ever given up in regulation, and the most since allowing 152 to Detroit on Nov. 3, 1982.

DeMar DeRozan led Chicago with 29 points, while Nikola Vucevic added 23 points and Zach LaVine had 22.

Chicago will next visit the Miami Heat on Tuesday, Dec. 20.

—The football team at North Central College—located in Naperville, Illinois—claimed its second Division III national title in three seasons with a 28-21 victory over the University of Mount Union (Ohio) on Dec. 16 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Maryland, the College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin (CCIW) reported.

The Cardinals finished 15-0 and established a new program record for single-season victories while also setting a new all-time Division III standard for rushing yards in a single season (5,325).

The winners squared off against the Purple Raiders (14-1) for the third straight postseason.
