The Chicago Bears faced off against the Detroit Lions and well it was something

Both of these teams came out flat as the score was essentially tied 6-6 heading into halftime. However, a poor 2:00 minute (1:05) drill by the Chicago Bears led to a very quick three and out. The Lions took full advantage of their 0:40 and three timeouts. Matthew Stafford saw plenty of time and made some great throws downfield to strike and score quickly.

The Chicago Bears looked defeated as they head into the locker room down 13-6. Fans were going crazy on social media. Beat reporters were and national media analysts were bringing up the name Nick Foles. Things were not looking great for the Chicago Bears. The hope would be that Matt Nagy finds a way to turn things around and kick the team into high gear for the second half.

First drive of the third quarter and well, it was more of the same as how the second quarter ended. Matthew Stafford stood in the pocket and hit his receivers consistently. The Lions run game did just enough too as they drove down the field and scored another touchdown to go up by 14. It looked like the game was already over as the Bears were down 20-6.

The Lions found themselves adding another three points on the board, but the Chicago Bears kept fighting. Somehow, someway, Mitch Trubisky and the Chicago Bears scored 21 points in the fourth quarter. The team also found a way to stop the Lions from scoring late (mainly because of a dropped touchdown pass by D’Andre Swift) and sneaked out with a victory. Club dub is open.
