Detroit showed both offensive prowess and defensive resilience during their latest victory, amassing 347 yards total offense while holding off the Saints to 362 total yards of total offense.

Amon-Ra St. Brown stands out as a shining light among Lions receivers, amassing 1,042 yards and six touchdown catches for unpredictability to their offensive strategy that stands out. Meanwhile, their formidable defense has produced 25 quarterback sacks and nine interceptions, showing their ability to disrupt opposing offenses and create turnovers.
On the other side of the field, the Chicago Bears — currently at the bottom of the NFC North with a 4-8 record — hope to thwart the Lions’ upward momentum. Despite an up-and-down campaign so far, in Week 12 they saw some success when they scored an important 12-10 victory against Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night Football; their defense played an instrumental part by holding them to 242 total yards while forcing four turnovers and saving four field goals from being missed by Minnesota.

Fields is also capable of using his dual-threat skills with 400 rushing yards and one touchdown as D’Onta Foreman chipped in with 381 rushing yards and four scores while DJ Moore led Chicago’s receiving corps with 1,003 receiving yards and six touchdown receptions – giving their defense plenty of tools to disrupt Detroit Lions offensive rhythm.
