e to do is look at your record,” Caldwell said. ”We’re just a little bit above average, and a little bit above average is not go Antworten

It’s no secret the Bears offense is run (no pun intended) by a two-headed monster in the backfield. The Bears have done a great job of funneling their offense through Tarik Cohen and Jordan Howard.They currently rank seventh in the NFL in rush yards per game (128.4) and 21st in pass yards per game. Their formula for winning is simple. Rush the ball effectivelyThrow enough to keep teams honestPlay outstanding defenseThe Bears are second in the NFL in takeaways (24) and in turnover differential (+10). For the Lions to pull this one off one the road they are going to need to stop the run Womens Kerry Hyder Jersey , and limit turnovers. The Lions have been better against the run overall since acquiring Damon Harrison, but they still have given up far too many big plays in the run game. It won’t take much daylight for a guy like Tarik Cohen to make you pay.Turnovers have haunted the Lions in recent weeks. In the last two game they had key opportunities to narrow the score and Matthew Stafford ended up coughing up the ball. Add Khalil Mack back into the mix for this game and it could be a long day for Stafford and Co. Opponent snapshotThe Bears have to be feeling good. Not only are they coming off of a two-game winning streak, but they are in sole possession of first place in the NFC North. And they just won a game by 32 points in which their quarterback completed only 12 passes. The Bears are 3-1 at home this season and should feel good about notching a fourth win this week.Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY SportsBears’ biggest threat Khalil MackBefore his ankle injury, Mack was the sole contender for Defensive Player of the Year. And even though he’s missed the last two games, his stats still stand out.Look at his stats in just his first four games:Five sacksFour forced fumblesOne fumble recoveryOne interception One touchdownMack is one of the few defensive players in the NFL who can take over a game by himself. That’s not a good sign for a Lions team that allowed Matthew Stafford to get sacked 10 times against Minnesota last week. Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY SportsBears’ weak linkMitchell TrubiskyTrubisky might be the complete opposite of Mack. He’s the one guy on the Bears that can completely wreck a game (and not in a good way) for the Bears. Trubisky is a fantastic athlete, but he relies on his legs far too much to bail him out. His erratic play has shades of Blake Bortles to it. Right now, he’s playing like a bottom-half-of-the-NFL quarterback on the division-leading team. Simply looking at the numbers, Trubisky is closer to the middle of the pack:Completion Percentage: 64.2 (21st)Total Yards: 1,949 (20th)Yards Per Attempt: 7.5 (17th)Passer rating 96.2 (17th)For a quarterback, sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good. For Trubisky, that certainly has been the case this season. Despite being middle of the pack with even interceptions (tied for 13th) he ranks third with 18 interceptable passes.Can the Matt Patricia dial up enough on defense to cause Trubisky to stumble? The answer to that question may determine the outcome of the game.Bottom lineIt’s hard to believe the last Lions victory was only a few weeks ago. A lot can change in just two weeks. Entering this week, the Lions are coming off a rough two-game losing streak while the Bears are enjoying back-to-back wins. The harsh reality for the Lions is that this is game could make or break them. A win puts them in the thick of the NFC North race despite a rough previous two weeks.Division games are always close and I don’t see this one being any different. The Bears will be able to do enough on offense to keep the Lions guessing and a healthy Khalil Mack may be too much for a struggling offensive line.PredictionBears 24 Lions 17 ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP)Beginning what could be his last week as head coach of the Detroit Lions Womens Ricky Jean Francois Jersey , Jim Caldwell was his usual deflective self. He shrugged off questions about his future, but at the same time, admitted that his team too often wasn’t good enough to get the job done. The Lions (8-7) lost 26-17 Sunday at the Cincinnati Bengals, eliminating them from playoff contention, and raising questions about Caldwell’s future with the team. As he began preparations for Sunday’s season finale against the Green Bay Packers, Caldwell insisted Monday that he’d had no talks about his future with GM Bob Quinn since the loss to the Bengals. ”In regards to that, nothing has changed,” Caldwell said, adding, ”I wouldn’t tell you if I did, but we don’t discuss what we disclose.” He at least seemed to recognize the reasoning for the questions. ”It is what it is,” Caldwell said. ”But everybody gets evaluated every year – players, coaches Anthony Zettel Jersey White , schemes, everything. That’s part of the process.” Caldwell agreed to a multiyear contract extension in the fall that was guaranteed through 2018, so if the Lions opt to fire him, they would only be required to pay him for next season. Hired in 2014, Caldwell’s first Lions team went 11-5, earning a wild-card berth but losing in the playoffs to the New Orleans Saints. His teams have been mediocre at best ever since. In 2015, they were 7-9, and last season, went 9-7 to earn another wild-card berth, but lost the last three games of the season to squander the NFC North title and then were beaten by the Seattle Seahawks in a wild-card playoff game. A loss to the Packers on Sunday and the Lions would be at .500 (24-24) the past three seasons under Caldwell. Caldwell wasn’t about to dispute the reality of the team’s record while he’s been head coach. ”If you want to get an indication of where you are, the great thing about the National Football League is all you have to do is look at your record,” Caldwell said. ”We’re just a little bit above average, and a little bit above average is not good enough. There are no bowl games in this league. ”We’ve got to get better in every area. There’s not anything that we just absolutely excelled at across the board.” Caldwell’s players are standing behind their coach Danny Amendola Jersey White , willing to shoulder the blame for their failures. ”I think he did a great job,” Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford said. ”We have to go out there, make plays, score points and win games.” ”It’s our job to get it fixed and we aren’t fixing it,” added safety Glover Quin. ”We have to look at ourselves first.” At the same time, they know that a coach is measured by wins and losses, and lately, the Lions haven’t been measuring up in the standings. ”We understand that’s the nature of this business,” Stafford said. ”We also understand what he does behind closed doors. ”I have a lot of respect for him.” As much as he won’t be able to avoid it, Caldwell would prefer the focus this week not be on his future. ”I’m not concerned about how I feel,” Caldwell said. ”It doesn’t matter. The fact is we’ve got a game left to play. It’s an opportunity for our guys to get better. ”We have 16 opportunities and you can’t take them for granted.” —
