Bears head to Detroit to face the Lions in a Thanksgiving Day battle between Bears vs Lions Live
Chicago (7-3) is coming off a major divisional win Sunday night over the Vikings to take over first place. With the Week 11 win, the Bears reached seven wins for the first time since 2013. But Detroit is riding high, too, after edging the Panthers to improve to 4-6 on the season.
Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky has 20 touchdowns with nine interceptions and a 97.7 quarterback rating. But Chicago’s defense might be the biggest reason for the turnaround; it leads the league with 27 takeaways. The Lions are coming off a win against the Panthers. It wasn’t a great win, but it was a win over a playoff contender. The Panthers had scored with a chance to tie the game at 20, but a missed two-point conversion led to a 20-19 win. The Lions will be without Kerryon Johnson in this one, who sprained his knee against Carolina.
The Lions should put up more of a fight in this game than they did in Chicago. They always do on Thanksgiving. The Bears got some breathing room after beating the Vikings on Sunday while the Packers lost to the Seahawks. However, nothing is promised in the NFL, so the Bears would love to watch football on Sunday having widened their division lead. Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky has 20 touchdowns with nine interceptions and a 97.7 quarterback rating. But Chicago’s defense might be the biggest reason for the turnaround; it leads the league with 27 takeaways.
The Lions got the win in Week 11, but lost lead rusher Kerryon Johnson, who was sidelined with a knee injury. Johnson leads the team in rushing with 641 yards and would be a huge loss to the offense if he can’t play. Detroit is led by first-year head coach Matt Patricia, whose defense has managed to take down two of the best quarterbacks in the league, Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers, but has otherwise struggled to find enough consistency to keep the team in playoff position & Watch this Thanksgiving Day game between Bears vs Lions live stream
