If the Chicago Bears want to beat the Detroit Lions and finish the job they started in week 11, they will need a classic game out of D.J. Moore. The good news is that it looks like they can get it. Moore is hotter than ever right now, and the Lions defense is ice cold.
The Chicago Bears can get a classic game out of D.J. Moore against the Detroit Lions
Since coming out of the bye week, the Lions have allowed 38, 26, 29, and 28 points in their four games. Over that run, they allowed 11 catches for 175 yards and two touchdowns to D.J. Moore. They gave up seven catches for 96 yards and a touchdown to D.J. Moore. They allowed five catches for 94 yards against Christian Watson, and then last week Chris Olave beat them for five catches and 119 yards.
The reality is that Cameron Sutton is a solid number two who has to play like he is a number one. Then, the Lions have Jerry Jacobs, who probably should not be starting as their number two. He gets picked on often. The Lions pass rush is weaker than the week 11 game, and the Bears will be coming out of their bye week healthy.
D.J. Moore is having a great year, but it looks even better when you just extrapolate the seven games that he had Justin Fields as his quarterback from start to finish. He averages 105.9 yards per game and 2.59 yards per route run.
This includes a big game against this very Lions' secondary. Justin Fields is playing better than ever and trusting D.J. Moore as much as ever before. Sunday is set up for D.J. Moore to get over 100 yards once again and keep the Bears in a game that they should win.
