Week 13: vs Chicago Bears

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Detroit (7-4) is on a two-game skid coming into this divisional showdown, and are now chasing 8-3 Green Bay for the NFC North title - meanwhile the Bears (5-6) are fighting for their playoff chances and are on a two-game winning streak. Detroit is 4-1 at home and they host the first of two showdowns with Chicago at Ford Field on Thanksgiving Day. The Lions' offense is in a deep funk, with zero TDs (rushing or passing) over the last two games played - Calvin Johnson last caught a TD vs. Miami back in Week 10. With only 183 yards passing at Arizona and 264 yards passing at New England (with one interception thrown per game) Matthew Stafford has been short-circuiting his fantasy owners' lineups lately. One bright spot for Detroit is Golden Tate (11 targets for 4/97/0 receiving at New England last week) who has gone over 1,000 yards receiving for the first time in his career (72/1,047/3 receiving on the season so far). He's well ahead of Calvin Johnson's mediocre 38/578/3 receiving total. The Bears' pass D gave up 25/48 for 301 net yards passing, one TD and two interceptions (with five sacks for -40 yards) to last year's backup quarterback in Chicago, Josh McCown - two games ago, they coughed up a more modest 18/28 for 147 net yards passing, one TD and one interception to Teddy Bridgewater and company (with two sacks for -11 yards). This year, their average net passing yards allowed, 260.5, is on the low end for NFL defenses (28th in the NFL), while the 25 passing scores surrendered to date is second-most in the NFL behind the Jets' 27 allowed. The Bears' pass D is bad enough to provide a tonic for Stafford and company - we think the home-team Lions hold the edge in this phase of the game.
