The Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears meet Sunday in week 10 NFL action at Soldier Field.
The Detroit Lions need a win after losing four of their last five games. The Detroit Lions have lost their last two road games. Matthew Stafford is completing 64.3 percent of his passes for 2,499 yards, 19 touchdowns and five interceptions. Stafford has two or more touchdown passes in eight of his last 16 games. Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones Jr. have combined for 1,175 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns while Danny Amendola has 31 receptions. The Detroit Lions ground game is averaging 96 yards per contest, and Kerryon Johnson leads the way with 308 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Detroit is allowing 27.1 points and 424.1 yards per game. Tracy Walker leads the Detroit Lions with 56 tackles, Trey Flowers has four sacks and Darius Slay has one interception.
The Chicago Bears need a win here to snap a four-game losing streak. The Chicago Bears have lost three of their last four home games. Mitch Trubisky is completing 63 percent of his passes for 1,217 yards, five touchdowns and three interceptions. Chase Daniel and Trubisky have combined for eight touchdown passes and five interceptions. Allen Robinson and Taylor Gabriel have combined for 770 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Anthony Miller has 16 receptions. The Chicago Bears ground game is averaging 80.5 yards per contest, and David Montgomery leads the way with 406 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively, Chicago is allowing 18 points and 323.6 yards per game. Danny Trevathan leads the Chicago Bears with 67 tackles, Khalil Mack has 5.5 sacks and Kyle Fuller has three interceptions.
The Lions are 10-3-1 ATS vs. a team with a losing record, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. NFC North. The Bears are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 vs. NFC North, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Lions are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Chicago and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings. The under is 10-3 in Bears last 13 games overall. The over is 5-1 in Lions last 6 games overall.
The Detroit Lions are 6-3 ATS in their last nine games as a road underdog. The Chicago Bears are 1-4 ATS in their last five games as a home favorite. The Lions defense is heading in the wrong direction and it's to the point where Stafford and his impressive numbers isn't enough to save them. The Chicago Bears have a major offensive issue with Trubisky not doing much at the quarterback position, and it puts that defense in constant bad spots. I don't want to back the Bears in the favorite role as much as the next guy, but they're at home and that Lions defense isn't good. If the Bears can't have offensive success and win this game, we may see some rolling heads.
