Sunday open thread: Which Lions player will have a big game vs. Bears?

Sunday open thread: Which Lions player will have a big game vs. Bears?

Who do you think is in for a big game on Sunday? Back on Friday, we discussed which Chicago Bears player could give the Lions the biggest amount of trouble on Sunday. There were a lot of names submitted, but the most popular were defensive lineman Akiem Hicks and running back Jordan Howard. Neither of those names are much of a surprise as this Bears team defines itself by the pass rush and their ability to run the ball. Now it’s time to look at things from the Lions’ perspective. There are several favorable matchups for Detroit this Sunday, and as a result, a few players could be in for...

Week 11 NFL staff picks: We think the Lions will continue to own the Bears

Week 11 NFL staff picks: We think the Lions will continue to own the Bears

For the second week in a row, it’s unanimous As a fanbase that hasn’t been able to celebrate much in the past say... 60 years or so, we’ve playfully adopted the #WeOwnTheBears hashtag. The Detroit Lions have defeated the Chicago Bears seven of the last eight time the two teams have faced off. That may not seem like much of an accomplishment to those outside of Detroit, considering the Bears were 22-42 coming into this season. But for Lions fans, we’ll take what we can get. The fortunes of the Chicago Bears haven’t seemed to change much this year, as their 3-6 start has them last...

5 Questions with Windy City Gridiron

5 Questions with Windy City Gridiron

Rookies and hot seats await. It took way too long before the Lions faced the Bears in 2017, but here we are. It’s time to talk about Chicago’s most bloated. We spoke with Jeff Berckes of Windy City Gridiron about what makes this football team tick. We also answered their questions, although I think they believe I’m far more broken about this team than I am. 1. TELL ME EVERYTHING ABOUT TARIK COHEN In a nutshell, a more explosive version of Darren Sproles. He was so effective early on that he now doesn't get used because Fox wouldn't want to try and win a game or anything. People are...

LIVE: Watch the Week 11 matchup between Lions-Bears on Madden NFL 18

It’s time to celebrate everybody’s favorite hashtag. I didn’t forget about you. It’s Saturday, and that means it’s time to jump back into everybody’s favorite fake football game of the week: The Pride of Detroit Madden simulation. Last week’s game was a doozy, as the Cleveland Browns topped the Detroit Lions in a never-before-seen double overtime game. Yes, it happened. Yes, you can still watch it on demand over on the Twitch channel. Yes, it was everything we could have ever wanted out of these things. But that game was evidence of the Madden simulation’s worth. It served...

Defenses and Dragons: Fantasy players to watch in Lions-Bears

Defenses and Dragons: Fantasy players to watch in Lions-Bears

A divisional matchup may not yield many fantasy points for either team. Each week, Defenses and Dragons will highlight two Detroit Lions and two opponents who stand out in the matchup, for better or for worse. It may be a stud who could struggle, or it could be a lower-level guy primed for a big game; either way, these are players who should over or underperform their typical output. D&D hopes to help out with crunch-time decisions by taking a closer look at the matchup through historical stats. All stated scoring assumes six points for all touchdowns and a half point per reception. Matthew...

Saturday open thread: Should the Lions play Zach Zenner or Tion Green vs. Bears?

Saturday open thread: Should the Lions play Zach Zenner or Tion Green vs. Bears?

Who should the Lions make active in place of Dwayne Washington. On Friday, the Detroit Lions declared that Dwayne Washington would miss their Week 11 matchup against the Chicago Bears. This will be Washington’s fifth game missed already this season after missing four straight earlier in the year with a quad injury. Washington, being just the No. 3 running back on the depth chart, hasn’t had a huge role with the team, but he’s also clearly their preferred short yardage and goal line back. That leaves the Lions with an important choice coming on Sunday. In the past, the Lions have gone...

Lions-Bears injury report: Ansah out, Reeves-Maybin questionable

The Lions will be without Ansah for the second straight game. The Detroit Lions wrapped up their week of practice in preparation for the Chicago Bears on Friday, and, again, they were without one of their best defensive lineman. Ezekiel Ansah missed his sixth straight practice with a back injury and is officially listed as OUT for Sunday’s game. This is the second week in a row Ansah will miss a game, after starting for the first eight games despite a knee injury. Last week, Anthony Zettel and Cornelius Washington stepped up to the plate and combined for 3.0 sacks against the Browns....

Lions notes: Analyst calls Matthew Stafford ‘a top-3 QB this year’

One NFL film analyst believes Stafford has been among the league’s elite this year. MMQB’s Andy Benoit does a weekly film review of every NFL game on Twitter, and he made a bold proclamation while watching the Detroit Lions vs. Cleveland Browns game: Example of why Matthew Stafford has been a top-3 QB this year.

Detroit Lions Thanksgiving: Random Stats

Detroit Lions Thanksgiving: Random Stats

Take a look back at the history of the Lions on Thanksgiving Day. It's that time of year again, Lions fans. It's time for Thanksgiving football. It's personally my favorite holiday. Turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, pumpkin pie, family and football. What's not to love? Besides the unavoidable political conversation you and your crazy uncle or in-law are going to have. Geez! Why can't we have a butt fumble every Thanksgiving? For many Lions fans, Thanksgiving is the day where your Lions love began. You likely sat with your grandpa and your dad in front of the TV and saw the Lions for the...

How to watch Lions vs. Bears: Game time, TV schedule, online streaming, announcers, more

All the gameday information you need for Week 11. In less than a week the Detroit Lions have a huge Thanksgiving Day showdown against the first-place Minnesota Vikings. But Detroit can’t look too far ahead, because they have a tough matchup this week in Chicago. The Bears are 3-6 and essentially out of the playoff race, but they’ve given just about every opponent fits this year. Led by a smothering defense, Chicago has picked up big wins over the Panthers, Steelers and Ravens this year. They nearly kicked off the season with a huge upset over the Falcons, too. The Bears may be 0-3 in...

Lions-Bears preview podcast: Chicago’s defense is vulnerable without Danny Trevathan

Robert Zeglinski helps us break down the Bears, and what problems they present. The First Byte podcast is here, and we’ve got our old friend Robert Zeglinski of Windy City Gridiron, The Athletic Chicago and Rock River Times with us to break down our rival Chicago Bears. The Bears are a team very much poised to play spoiler in the final two months of the season. At 3-6, their playoff hopes are pretty much done, but they’ve taken down good teams (Steelers, Ravens and Panthers) along the way, and can certainly give anyone that overlooks them some trouble. So we asked Robert about his...

ESPN’s ‘Top 25 under-25 NFL players’ includes no Lions

ESPN’s ‘Top 25 under-25 NFL players’ includes no Lions

The Detroit Lions have no talent under the age of 25 that ranks among the top of the NFL. The perception around Detroit, for the most part, is that Bob Quinn has had far more hits than misses in his two drafts as Lions GM. And while that’s bearing to be true with significant contributions from those aforementioned players, those hits haven’t been top-tier talent, at least not according to the Worldwide Leader. On Thursday, Mike Sando of ESPN released his rankings of the “Top 25 under-25 NFL players” for the 2017 season and not a single Lions player made the cut. This year’s list...

Detroit Lions at Chicago Bears Week 11 NFL preview: On Paper

Detroit Lions at Chicago Bears Week 11 NFL preview: On Paper

Our statistical breakdown and prediction for Lions-Bears. It’s Chicago Bears week, and while I’d love to boldly proclaim that #WeOwnTheBears right off the top, last week’s squeaker against the Cleveland Browns has me hesitant to say anything definitive about this Detroit Lions team. Detroit is on a two-game winning streak and won both games by double-digits, but there are cracks forming in their game, especially on defense. That being said, the offensive side of the ball is extremely healthy and playing much better as of late. That makes for a good matchup this week against a Bears...

Lions vs. Bears: Random Stats

A look back at the history between the Lions and Bears. Hey Detroit Lions fans, it’s that time of year. It’s time to pack up and head over to a city that I had a heat stroke in, got strep throat on my honeymoon in and spent $5 on a McDouble in. That’s right guys, I’m talking about Chicago. The Lions will face off against the Bears this Sunday. I’ve always wondered who the Lions’ true division rival is? It can’t be the Vikings. They historically dominated the Lions. It can’t be Green Bay. The Packers have only lost to the Lions at home twice in the last 26 years. That leaves...

Friday open thread: Which Bears player is the most dangerous vs. Lions?

Friday open thread: Which Bears player is the most dangerous vs. Lions?

Which Bears players could give the Lions fits on Sunday? If last week taught Detroit Lions fans anything, it’s that good players can help bad teams compete in a game they should otherwise lose. DeShone Kizer played a hell of a game against the Lions last week, and may have won the game had he not missed two key possessions with a rib injury. The Chicago Bears are no different. They have a slew of talented players, likely more than the Browns, but haven’t been able to put it all together to sport a competitive team. The Bears are just 3-6 through nine weeks with all realistic hopes for...

Thursday Night Football open thread: Titans at Steelers

Thursday Night Football open thread: Titans at Steelers

Come kick off Week 11 with us! “Thursday Night Football” doesn’t offer much in terms of playoff implications for the Detroit Lions and their fans, but there is intrigue nonetheless. First, we get to see how the Pittsburgh Steelers, who beat the Lions earlier in the season, perform down the final stretch of the regular season. Last week, they nearly dropped a game to the lowly Colts, so they may not be quite as good as their 7-2 record suggests. But perhaps the most interesting thing about this matchup has nothing to do with the two teams involved. For the first time ever, a...

Lions-Bears injury report: Ezekiel Ansah misses 5th-straight practice

Lions-Bears injury report: Ezekiel Ansah misses 5th-straight practice

It’s not looking good for the Lions’ best pass rusher. For the second day in a row, and fifth consecutive practice, Detroit Lions defensive end Ezekiel Ansah sat out. The Lions premier pass rusher has been sidelined with a back injury for the past week and a half, and his chances of playing this week look dimmer and dimmer. On Wednesday, the Lions added Kasim Edebali to their defensive line, but without Ansah, Detroit remains perilously thin at the position. The rest of the Lions injury report remained the same: Dwayne Washington is still out with a hip injury, T.J. Lang was a full...

Check out this “Sound FX” segment which features even more on-field audio from Sunday’s game: But that wasn’t it.

The Lions’ defensive end rotation is a mess

The Lions’ defensive end rotation is a mess

Detroit can’t seem to decide on who they want playing defensive end. On Wednesday, the Detroit Lions claimed defensive end/linebacker Kasim Edebali off of waivers, cutting George Johnson to make room for the transaction. Prior to getting waived by the Broncos, Edebali had only played 55 defensive snaps with Denver this season, contributing mostly on special teams. Including those special teams snaps, he has recorded just a single tackle in 2017. On Sunday, he may be a key figure on the Lions’ defense. Ezekiel Ansah missed practice on Thursday again—his fifth consecutive missed...
