2. Will the Chicago Bears get better play from Tyrique Stevenson?
Tyrique Stevenson has had a whirlwind of a rookie season. He has been targeted about three times more than Jaylon Johnson when they are on the field together and has had his ups and downs. Sunday was his best game of the season, as he not only hauled in an interception, he forced a fumble on a kick return.
To be fair, the pass was right to him, and the special teams play was not impactful for how he will grow at cornerback. Still, it brought a lot of momentum. Even better is seeing his lowest yards allowed of the season.
One thing that helps is knowing that Amon-Ra St. Brown is mostly working out of the slot, and their next two pass-catchers are a running back and a tight end. With that in mind, the Lions were not going to pass up those players to test Stevenson with Josh Reynolds. Still, a clean game with two turnovers is momentum-building.
What can we see from Stevenson in terms of growth over the final six games? Was this just a one-game thing?
