The Chicago Bears will be trying to snap their five-game losing streak when they play the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day. The Bears are coming off a 16-13 loss to Baltimore as one-point underdogs. The Lions are coming off a 13-10 loss to Cleveland as 13.5-point underdogs.

Chicago is 6-4 in its last 10 games against Detroit.

 

Bears Trying To Snap Two-Game Road Losing Streak

The Bears aren’t playing well at the moment and they’ve lost their last five games. They will try to put an end to their losing streak with a win over the Lions, which will give them their second road win of the season.

 

Chicago is averaging 16.3 points per game. They are averaging 155.8 passing yards and 132.1 rushing yards per game.

Andy Dalton completed 11 of 23 passes for 201 yards and two touchdowns in the loss to Baltimore. He is expected to start in place of an injured Justin Fields. David Montgomery had 14 carries for 58 yards, while Darnell Mooney had five catches for 121 receiving yards and one touchdown.

Chicago has struggled defensively, giving up 24 points per game. They gave up 16 points in their last game and will need a similar effort if they want to win this game. The Bears won't have DT Akiem Hicks (ankle) and OLB Khalil Mack (foot) was placed on the IR.

 

Lions Looking For First Win

The Lions have struggled this season and haven’t won a game yet. They will try to put an end to their winless streak with a win over the Bears, which will give them their first win of the year.

 

Detroit is averaging 16 points per game. They are averaging 197.8 passing yards and 114.2 rushing yards per game.

Tim Boyle completed 15 of 23 passes for 77 yards and two interceptions in the loss to Cleveland. With Jared Goff still listed as questionable for this game, Boyle will likely get the start if Goff is unable to play.

D'Andre Swift had 14 carries for 136 yards and one touchdown, while T.J. Hockenson had six catches for 51 yards.

Detroit has struggled defensively, giving up 27.3 points per game. They gave up 13 points in their last game and will need another solid defensive effort if they want to get the win.
