Detroit Lions vs. Chicago Bears Recap DEC 6TH 2020

Mitch Trubisky threw for 173 yards and three touchdowns to help the host Chicago Bears snap a four-game losing streak with a 20-13 victory against the Detroit Lions on Sunday afternoon.

Chicago (4-5) won for the first time since Week 4 to take sole possession of third place in the NFC North. The Lions (3-5-1) lost for the fifth time in six games.

Detroit quarterback Jeff Driskel's fourth-down pass toward the end zone from the Bears' 25-yard line as time expired was incomplete.

The Lions cut the Bears' lead to 20-13 on a 47-yard touchdown pass from Driskel to Kenny Golladay with 6:00 left in the fourth quarter. The Lions got the ball back after a Bears' punt and advanced into Chicago territory, but they could not score. An apparent Detroit conversion on a fourth-and-1 from the Bears' 36-yard line was negated on an offensive pass interference call before the Lions turned the ball over on downs.

Chicago failed to cross its own 30-yard line on its first four possessions, but finally broke through on the final drive before halftime. Trubisky completed 6 of 7 passes and capped an 80-yard drive with an 18-yard touchdown pass to Ben Braunecker with 32 seconds left in the second quarter.

Eddy Pineiro's point-after gave the Bears a 7-6 lead at intermission. Despite outgaining the Bears 150-101 in the first 30 minutes, the Lions only managed field goals of 22 and 54 yards from Matt Prater.

The Bears extended their lead on the opening possession of the third quarter, as Trubisky punctuated a 76-yard drive with a 9-yard scoring pass to Tarik Cohen. Trubisky hooked up with Taylor Gabriel for a 24-yard touchdown pass with 9:44 to go, as the Bears capitalized on a Detroit turnover. Trubisky entered the game with just five touchdowns this season, and zero in his past two contests.

Driskel, starting in place of an injured Matthew Stafford, completed 4 of 5 passes on a 13-play, 72-yard opening drive, misfiring only a third-and-goal from the Chicago 4. Prater converted from 22 yards.

Stafford missed the game with what ESPN reported as multiple fractures in his back, snapping a streak of 136 consecutive starts. The run of successive starts was the sixth longest by a quarterback in NFL history. Stafford on Wednesday told reporters he was "good to go" and "not really worried about it" after reportedly sustaining the injury late in the Lions' Week 9 road loss to the Oakland Raiders.

Bears inside linebacker Danny Trevathan left the game after suffering a grisly injury to his left arm while attempting to tackle Driskel on Detroit's second drive of the game. As Trevathan fell toward the ground, his arm bent back awkwardly near the elbow.

Lions offensive tackle Rick Wagner and running back Ty Johnson later left the game and were ruled out with concussions.

Driskel finished 27-for-46 passing for 269 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

David Montgomery rushed 17 times for 60 yards to lead Chicago.

--Field Level Media

Longtime NFL assistant Darrell Bevell will make his debut as interim head coach for Detroit when the Lions visit the Chicago Bears on Sunday afternoon.

Bevell, who has spent 18 years in the NFL and most recently served as the Lions' offensive coordinator, was promoted to the interim head coaching role last weekend after Detroit fired head coach Matt Patricia along with general manager Bob Quinn.

The offer was bittersweet for Bevell, who now will try to show what he can do in charge of the Lions (4-7).

"I hate the circumstances with which it happened, but it's an opportunity," Bevell said. "And you got to take full advantage of the opportunities that you're given, however they come your way. So like I told the players, I'm jacked. I mean, I'm excited. I get a five-game audition to show what I'm capable of."


Winning NFL Picks for Week 13


The first game of that audition will come against the Bears (5-6), who have lost five games in a row since surging to a 5-1 start. Chicago is coming off a 41-25 defeat against the Green Bay Packers that head coach Matt Nagy -- whose job security also is drawing scrutiny along with that of general manager Ryan Pace -- termed as "flat-out embarrassing."

The Bears have been outscored 134-88 during their skid. Their last victory came Oct. 18 at Carolina.

Nagy challenged his players to put in extra work this week to end the drought.

"When you lose five in a row like this, you've got to come up with different solutions, and then you've got to have that pride," he said. "So, put all that other stuff aside, I have to worry about every day being the leader for these guys and this team and understand, 'OK, where's our warts?' And then clean them up. And then, 'What's our strengths?' and let's do more of that.

"For me, there's that pride that you have to have. Our guys do care. I know they care."


Live NFL Week 13 Point Spread Odds


Nagy said Wednesday that the team will stick with Mitchell Trubisky at quarterback for a second consecutive week after he completed 26 of 46 passes for 242 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions against Green Bay. Trubisky reclaimed his starting job after veteran Nick Foles injured his hip two weeks earlier.

Allen Robinson should be the Bears' top target in the passing game. Robinson leads the team with 71 catches for 829 yards and five touchdowns on the season.

On the ground, Bears running back David Montgomery leads the way with 575 yards and one score.

Both RBs should garner looks in the NFL rushing props this week.

Bevell takes over a Lions team that has lost two in a row and four of five. The Lions also have lost five games in a row against the Bears, including a season-opening 27-23 loss on Sept. 13 that saw the Bears score 21 unanswered points in the fourth quarter.

Detroit is led by quarterback Matthew Stafford, who has a 92.7 passer rating to go along with 2,876 passing yards, 18 touchdowns and eight interceptions. His preferred options include tight end T.J. Hockenson (45 catches, 530 yards, 5 TDs) and wideout Marvin Jones (43 catches, 503 yards, 5 TDs).

Stafford was limited in practice Wednesday with an ongoing thumb issue on his throwing hand.

Veteran running back Adrian Peterson leads Detroit with 444 rushing yards and four touchdowns. He is No. 5 all time in rushing yards (14,660) and No. 4 in touchdowns (115).

Chicago is 2-3 at home this season. Detroit is 3-3 on the road.

Bears starting LT Charles Leno Jr. (toe) missed practice Wednesday and starting RT Germain Ifedi (leg) was limited. Linebacker Khalil Mack (back) and defensive tackle Akiem Hicks (hamstring) also missed practice.

For the Lions, star WR Kenny Golladay (hip) joined DL Da'Shawn Hand (groin), LB Christian Jones (knee) and CB Jeff Okudah (shoulder) on the sidelines for Wednesday's practice. Running back De'Andre Swift (concussion) was limited, as was WR Danny Amendola (hip) and DE Austin Bryant (thigh).

This game will be close, but we like the Lions getting a FG on the road (Learn how to bet NFL point spreads).
