How To Watch
In week 10’s Thursday night game, the Bears beat the Panthers 16-19. It’s possible that rookie QB Tyson Bagent had his final start of the season as Justin Fields was able to practice in full on Wednesday, having recovered from the thumb injury that kept him out of action for four weeks. Running back Khalil Herbert may also return to the field, having logged a limited practice on Wednesday. It remains to be seen how the backfield will operate if Herbert plays, given how well D’Onta Foreman has performed in his absence.
In week 10, the Lions emerged victorious in a high-scoring game against the Chargers with a score of 41-38. All of their star players delivered impressive performances, with RB Jahmyr Gibbs and WR Amon-Ra St. Brown standing out. Gibbs carried the ball 14 times and racked up 77 yards and two touchdowns, while St. Brown caught 8 out of 9 targets for 156 yards and one score.
The Bears offer more threat with Justin Fields back under center but they may still struggle against Detroit. The Lions have one of the most potent offenses in the NFL and I can see them winning in style here.
