Welcome to Week 12 in the NFL, which gets started on the American holiday of Thanksgiving. The day features a slate of three games from the late morning into the evening, including the Detroit Lions (0-9-1) as they host the Chicago Bears (3-7) at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan.
The juiciest part of the matchup between the Bears and the Lions is that it is a division game in the NFC North. Outside of that, the story lines around these teams are bigger off the field than on it.
Rumor has it that Chicago head coach Matt Nagy may be coaching his last game for the team. He has denied these rumors, but only time will tell. Will a victory on Thursday make any difference? The Bears will be without rookie quarterback Justin Fields, and Andy Dalton will start in his place. Chicago is coming off of a close loss on the road in which they almost upset the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium. Can that performance spark some positive momentum?
The Lions are attempting to look for positivity wherever they can find it as well as they search for their first win of the season. It was merely enough to end the losing two weeks ago when they forced a tie with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Coming off of a close loss against the Cleveland Browns while playing their backup quarterback should stir up some confidence. Starting quarterback Jared Goff has been cleared for return from his oblique injury and will be the one under center as the team returns home from their road trip.
