They broke me. Week 10 was a disaster for the Lions. They got destroyed in the division again and the Lions have major problems on defense and offense. The Bears (6-3) are leading the division and the Packers (4-4-1) beat up on the Dolphins.
The Vikings (5-3-1) enjoyed a bye to rest up and get healthy for a big matchup with the Bears at Solider Field on Sunday Night. The Packers have a short week to face travel to Seattle (4-5). The Lions host Carolina (6-3) to start a 3 game home stand followed by the Thanksgiving tilt hosting the Bears for round 2 of misery. Carolina is pissed off after getting embarrassed by the Steelers and will take it out on the Lions.
Bears 34 Lions 22
The Lions had some nice garbage time TDs and neither interception was Stafford’s fault at least. Kerryon Johnson and Golladay played hard and Marvin Jones made a few plays. Johnson had a bad fumble though fighting for extra yards. The Bears had 6 sacks and shut down the Lions offense when they needed in the 1st and 3rd Quarters.
The Bears offense looked like a juggernaut against Detroit without Darius Slay. Allen Robinson returned with a huge day and rookie Anthony Miller was wide open most of the day as well with over 100 yards and a TD. Trubisky had time to throw and made the Lions pay. The Lions run defense was the only saving grace in this game but it didn’t matter. Nevin Lawson, DeShawn Shead and Teez Tabor are all awful. Glover Quin regressed big time to the slowest man alive. He runs like a mattress now.
Doink. Cody Parkey just hit the uprights for a fifth time.
The Lions will not run the table at 3-6 despite 3 home games and at Arizona and at Buffalo on tap.
Green Bay 31 Dolphins 12
Green Bay ended the losing streak and beat up on the Dolphins in Lambeau. Aaron Jones had a huge day as everyone is able to run all over Miami (in the heat or not). Rodgers tossed two TDs to Davante Adams who has 9 TDs and is on pace for his first 1,000 yard season. The Packers have some tough games but they always have a chance with Aaron Rodgers. The Packers defense held strong holding Miami to four field goals.
Fuck the Lions. End melt
