2. Luke Getsy

There were bits and pieces of this one where Luke Getsy looked fine as a the play caller. Justin Fields looked like he was given a bit more freedom to be himself, running more often than we've seen from him at all this season. That kept Detroit's defense honest and allowed the Bears to open things up a lot more.

But, in the end, it was Getsy's play calling that played a big factor in this loss. When the Bears could have run out the clock to win the game, Getsy played it conservative. He called two basic run plays to Khalil Herbert on first and second down, and then on third and long Fields took a deep shot to Tyler Scott which fell incomplete.

Instead of continuing to allow Fields to use his legs and stay creative, Getsy reverted back to playing scared. He showed zero faith in Fields to win this game, and instead made it extremely easy on Detroit to get the football back. From there, Detroit went on to win the game, which brings us to our next point.
