Week 16: vs Detroit Lions

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Everyone who watched the Bears play on Monday Night Football this week saw how unmotivated and generally poorly Jay Cutler is playing right now - he got spammed by the Saints' pass rushers for seven sacks totaling -41 yards, and hit another seven times for good measure. His passes were off-target for a good portion of the evening, leading to 17/31 for 194 yards passing, with three interceptions and two late, cheap TDs after New Orleans was in prevent mode (up 24-0 at the end of the third quarter). Marquess Wilson did snag a TD after being catapulted into the starting lineup due to Brandon Marshall's season-ending ribs injury (five targets for 3/16/1 receiving for Wilson), and Martellus Bennett handled six for 4/36/0 during the game. Alshon Jeffery got a last-minute TD to salvage his fantasy outing (nine for 4/78/1), but the malaise of the playing-out-the-string Cutler infected the entire passing attack which looked lethargic and apathetic for much of the game. Uh oh, Bears' fans. The Lions' pass D allowed 31/48 for 256 yards passing, two TDs and two interceptions thrown (with three sacks taken for -24 yards) back on Thanksgiving Day three weeks ago - since then, Josh McCown has slung 20/39 for 207 net yards, two TDs and two interceptions (taking six sacks for -43 yards) and Teddy Bridgewater threw 31/41 for 284 net yards, one TD and two interceptions (with four sacks taken for -41 yards) lsat week. As you can see, attacking Detroit is generally done in this phase of the game - the Lions do not shut down opposing passers they way they do opposing rushers, but they do generate a lot of turnovers (Detroit is tied for second in the NFL with 19 interceptions to their credit this year). Chicago looked so bad on Monday Night Football that we're calling this a neutral matchup.
