Week 13: vs Chicago Bears
Mark and Joe say: Tough 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.
Reggie Bush couldn't play vs. New England last weekend due to his gimpy ankle, leaving Joique Bell (19/48/0 rushing with 1/-2/0 receiving) and Theo Riddick (2/12/0 rushing with 3/40/0 receiving) to tote the load for Detroit during Week 12. Though Bush is reported to be on track for playing on Thanksgiving, we've seen this dance card before - he has made cameos in other games only to aggravate one or another of his injuries and then sit out the balance of a contest. Bell is being fed the ball at a high rate and looks like the best fantasy option heading into Turkey Day.
The Bears' defense limited the Buccaneers' backs to 22/66/0 rushing last weekend, and held Minnesota under 100 yards rushing two games back (16/96/0) - they've played some stout defense against two teams with less-than-stellar options at running back. To date, the Bears are 12th in the NFL averaging 106.8 rushing yards allowed per game to all opponents, and they have allowed just five rushing scores (tied for second-least rushing scores given up this season).
The Lions have some tough customers on their way to Detroit this Thursday - advantage, Chicago.
