Detroit Lions

The Lions soaked up a disappointing defeat against the Washington Redskins. They stepped off the field with a 19-16 scoreboard. Jeff Driskel was the rudder of the team, with a 20/33 and 207-yard performance. He connected a thrown TD and 3 interceptions. Bo Scarborough was the hero of the rush. He carried the ball 18 times, helping the team gain 98 yards. Kenny Golladay brought up the receiving end with 4 catches pegged at 61 yards.

The Lions lacked the scoring prowess to make ends meet. They gained 364 yards against the opponent’s 230 yards. In the tale of the yard, they should have an advantage due to field domination. Their opponents, while having less field space, were able to compensate by scoring big points.

The Lions rushed for 32 times out of 71 plays. It’s a decent figure, but it also indicated that the Lions’ accuracy was wanting. They had a lot of territories and attempts to own the game, yet they still failed to secure a win. The Lions better increase their accuracy so that their efforts don’t go to waste.

Players to watch:

M. Stafford QB (8 GP, 187 CMP, 291 ATT, 64.3 CMP%, 2499 YDS, 8.6 AVG, 320.6 YDS/G, 66 LNG, 19 TD, 5 INT, 18 SACK, 137 SYL, 73.1 QBR, 106 RTG), K. Johnson RB (6 GP, 92 ATT, 308 YDS, 3.3 AVG, 14 LNG, 0 BIG, 2 TDS, 51.3 YDS/G, 1 FUM, 1 LST, 16 FD), J.D. McKissic RB (11 GP, 34 ATT, 192 YDS, 5.6 AVG, 44 LNG, 2 BIG, 0 TDS, 17.5 YDS/G, 0 FUM, 0 LST, 7 FD), K. Golladay WR (11 GP, 43 REC, 80 TGTS, 792 YDS, 18.4 AVG, 8 TD, 66 LNG, 15 BIG, 72 YDS/G, 1 FUM, 1 LST, 212 YAC, 35 FD), M. Jones Jr. WR (11 GP, 56 REC, 78 TGTS, 701 YDS, 12.5 AVG, 8 TD, 47 LNG, 12 BIG, 63.7 YDS/G, 0 FUM, 0 LST, 114 YAC, 36 FD).

Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears are fresh from a feel-good game against the New York Giants. The Bears came out on top with a 19-14 endgame score. QB Mitchell Trubisky was in charge of the pack, going for 25/41 with 278 air yards. He was able to chuck in 1 thrown touchdown and 2 interceptions. Tarik Cohen held the ball 6 times for 25 yards. Allen Robinson was the reception leader with 6 catches for 131 yards.

The Bears played great defense. They limited their opponent to a 58% throw completion rate. However, they let slip 21 run attempts, which probably explains why their opponent was able to catch up in terms of scoring. 

The tale of the yards signaled a Bear-dominated field. The Bears’ 69 plays helped them gain 335 yards. Their opponent was only able to chalk in 243 yards. The Bears rushed 26 times. Their mixed offense work, but they have to be careful in forcing this strategy against better teams.

Montgomery RB (11 GP, 156 ATT, 519 YDS, 3.3 AVG, 55 LNG, 2 BIG, 5 TDS, 47.2 YDS/G, 1 FUM, 1 LST, 28 FD), T.
