Big game as 3rd or possibly even 2nd place depending on what the pack do is on the line in this one.

Box score scouting only it appears that Fields may have had his best game of his career yesterday mainly due to his feet of course since his average pass attempt only yielded 6.5 yards. 

Despite his passing struggles if he is running well he could pose a problem for us.

If the Lions knowing how bad they have been burnt by mobile QB's do NOT have a QB spy I am going to lose it...... 

they dont have a spy who can keep up with fields (maybe a safety or okudah as a spy?).  the key will be maintaining pass rush lane discipline and not opening a bunch of rush lanes for him.  keep him in the pocket and make him beat you by throwing.  they seemed to do well against the run against dallas when okudah was playing a safety/linebacker role in the box moreso than a cover corner.  they might want to revisit that role against a team that has trouble passing downfield but has developed a good run game based on fields' legs.

no man coverage, play zone.  make the osu qb read a defense and beat you.

they got whupped by trubisky all the time because they only played man, the one defense he knew how to read.

Are we sure fields knows how to read anything? Defenses? A Book?

This is a prove it game for me for Dan Campbell and the growth of this team. If they go out and lose to a Bears team that sold off pieces at the deadline then I think all the shine of the past week or so will have worn off. After losing, the calls by fans to turn up the heat on Campbell will be out in full force. The other thing a loss would do is kill the narrative that the first half of the season they just happened to face a tough schedule. You can't lose to a cupcake team like the Bears if you want to prove to fans you're any good and that you're improving as a team.

It’s insane to think but absolutely true that the Lions are in the playoff race if they win today.  

They won’t though.   Dark Goff will show up again and suck the life out of the offense.  Multiple dumb turnovers expected.  Lions defense will bend and not break but this one is ugly by losing handily to a shit franchise with a QB that we passed on (rightfully so btw).
 

Bears 31

Lions 13

Such smart strategy. Here, you take the ball, we don't want it. Our worst ranked defense will give up a 5 minute TD drive. But don't worry, we get it first in the 2nd half. We'll be down 35-0, but we get the ball. If we had a solid defense, it might be a good strategy. But with our defense? Loss....
