Eddie Jackson, Kyle Fuller, Cordarrelle Patterson...

Jackson and Fuller both will be making their second straight Pro Bowl appearances. This past season they were part of a defense that helped the Bears rank fourth in the NFL in points allowed (18.6 per game) and eighth in total yards (324.1).

Jackson recorded 60 tackles and two interceptions—both of which came late in games and sealed wins over the Lions and Vikings. He also registered five tackles-for-loss, five pass breakups, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. Fuller, meanwhile, led the Bears with three interceptions and 12 pass breakups and finished second with 82 tackles.

Patterson was named to the Pro Bowl as a special-teams player, earning the honor for his performance as a return specialist and gunner on the punt-coverage team.

In his first season with the Bears, Patterson ranked second in the NFL with a 29.5-yard average on 28 kickoff returns, including a 102-yard touchdown against the Saints, and led the league with 825 kick-return yards.

The 6-2, 238-pounder helped the Bears lead the NFL in kickoff return average (26.6 yards) in 2019 after ranking last in the league (19.1) in 2018.

Patterson was named first-team All-Pro as a kick returner by Associated Press, Sporting News and the Pro Football Writers of America and second-team All-Pro as a special-teams player by AP.

This is the third time in seven NFL seasons that Patterson has been named first-team All-Pro and voted to the Pro Bowl. He was previously honored when he played for the Vikings as a rookie in 2013 and again in 2016. Patterson was also selected second-team All-Pro in 2015 and 2018.
