Wat te weten
The Detroit Lions will return home after a two-match journey. Detroit and Chicago Bears will go head-to-head in the NFC North battle at 12:30 p.m. ET on Thursday at Ford Field. Both teams can turn their fortunes around after losing close in the previous matches.
It was close but no cigar for the Lions when they fell 13-10 to the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Despite the setback, Detroit put on a solid performance against RB D’Andre Swift, who dashed away for a TD and 136 yards on 14 carry. That touchdown – a 57-yard dash in the third quarter – was one of the highlights of the game.
Speaking of close games: it was a tough game, but Chicago had to settle for a 16-13 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. Despite the loss, Chicago has seen a number of their players rise to the challenge and put in some remarkable plays. WR Darnell Mooney, who caught five passes for a TD and 121 yards, was the best of the bunch. Near the top of the reels stand out is Andy Dalton’s 60-yard TD bombshell for Mooney in the third quarter.
Detroit is now 0-9-1 while the Bears sit at 3-7. Two defensive stats to keep in mind while watching: The Lions are second-worst in the league in yards allowed per game, with an average of 140.5. Chicago’s defense has more to brag about, as they’re ranked first in the league NFL when it comes to sacks, with 31 into the season.
