Where: Soldier Field, Chicago.
TV: Fox (Channel 2 in Detroit).
KEYS TO THE GAME: The Lions confront a versatile new kid on the block quarterback for the second in a row week, and their objective is to make him and the Bears’ offense one-dimensional. That implies halting the running amusement to the exclusion of everything else, and that implies the attention will be on Jordan Howard. In two recreations against the Lions a year ago, Howard scrambled for 197 yards. In the event that he has another defining moment, the Bears could be prepared for the vexed.
Unpalatably, the Lions ought to have a chance to push the ball downfield as long as they can ensure Matthew Stafford. The Bears have surrendered six plays of 40 or more yards this season, and the Lions will have their full supplement of hostile weapons with Kenny Golladay back to join Marvin Jones and Golden Tate at wide recipient.
The Bears a week ago began attempting to run the ball against Green Bay, yet fizzled and therefore put more weight on Mitchell Trubisky to pass. They ought to have turned out passing. This week they require a similar course of action they had a week ago.
Since Detroit lost Haloti Ngata to harmed save, they are surrendering 136.8 yards a diversion on the ground. They were permitting just 74.6 on the ground when he played. It’s simpler for resistances to shield against the Bears’ zone blocking plan with Howard running since they know the Bears will do it, however Detroit seems unfit to stop any ground assault.
Protectively, it’s best to stir up inclusions and avoid any risk against Stafford. He has the arm and capacity to move around and consume blitzers. It’s a diversion to give the general pass rushers a chance to work for weight and power Stafford into turnovers. The Lions will attempt to run right on time in the amusement to give the guard a comment about, yet they’ll never be not kidding about it, and the accentuation must be on getting to Stafford with four men while shielding the go with man to man.
