Week 13: at Detroit Lions

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 Bears' passing attack continues to perform erratically entering the holiday week, with a mere 17/27 for 130 yards, one TD and zero interceptions thrown by Jay Cutler last week (three sacks taken for -18 yards) against the Buccaneers' 22nd-ranked pass D (that averages 252.1 net yards allowed per game) last week. However, Chicago was more explosive against the Vikings with 31/43 for 330 yards, three TDs and two interceptions thrown during Week 11. During that two-game winning streak, Alshon Jeffery has handled the most passes (21 targets for 14/157/2 receiving), followed by Brandon Marshall (15 for 10/122/2), Matt Forte (12 for 11/81/0) and Martellus Bennett (11 for 8/66/0). All four of Cutler's TD passes have gone to his two featured wideouts. The Lions' pass D was shredded by Tom Brady and company last week (38/53 for 349 yards passing, two TDs and one interception thrown, with zero sacks taken) after losing a game in Arizona two weeks ago in which Drew Stanton also threw for over 300 yards (21/32 for 306 yards passing, two TDs and two interceptions) - the Lions' vaunted pass rush didn't produce a sack in either game. This unit is in crisis entering this key divisional matchup, friends. The Lions are now 15th in the NFL with 26 sacks generated, while the Bears rank 18th with 27 sacks allowed. Even though the Bears are on the road, the Lions' pass D is not playing well enough to claim an edge - advantage, Chicago.
