Bears Vs Lions
October 10, 2011 by staff
Bears Vs Lions, The 2-2 Bears will face the 4-0 Detroit Lions in Detroit on Monday Night Football. Detroit is playing red hot and is arguably the hottest team in the NFL right now, along with the Buffalo Bills (5-0), who would have thought?
Despite coming from a victory against the Carolina Panthers, which some felt like a loss, the Bears have a good chance of winning this game. The Chicago Bears have won six consecutive games against the Detroit Lions and have not lost in three seasons. The Lions have an impressive streak going well. Excluding the post-season, have the best run of regular season games, sitting at 8 last season.
His last two victories, lost 20 at halftime of the Vikings, and 24 for the Cowboys at halftime. The Lions returned to win both of those games. If the Bears to jump on the Lions, do not expect the Bears to squander the lead, like other teams did. It’s a strange formula of the Lions have, their defense ranks high in the statistics of most of the team still played horrible in the 1st.
Detroit has a solid pass and run defense, so if the bears can not have a balanced attack this week could get ugly. Last week, Jay Cutler had only nine completions and * Bearly Bears threw the ball. Matt Forte amassed 205 yards on 25 carries. If the Bears enter this game and play one-dimensional, the Lions are going to break. Cutler and Martz will have to open the field until the lions do not stack 8 in the box and just stop playing Matt Forte. Last week, Forte joined the ranks of Walter Payton and Gale Sayers Chicago Bears as the only runners to rush for 200 yards in a game +. You’re in good company now.
The Bears ‘defense has a huge task at hand, stopping the Lions’ offense red hot. They rank second in NFL with 33.8 points a game and averaged 301.2 yards per game. The advantage is that at the last second rank with 74.5 rushing yards per game. If the Bears do not have to focus on getting Jahvid Best leads too, can put the focus more on Megatron, Calvin Johnson.
Through four games, Calvin Johnson has 24 receptions for 321 yards and 8. Johnson is the only one in NFL history to have 2 TD WR a week, every week, through four games. Going against a defense that allowed 524 yards to the Carolina Panthers last week, if the Bears do not make a bit of pressure up front, could be a long day. Julius Peppers This is where it becomes critical to the success of the Bears. Peppers had a sack in each career meeting against the Lions, including last season in Week 1, Matt Stafford on the sidelines all season.
Why I think the Bears defense step up and stop Calvin Johnson? Chris Harris.
Chris Harris is likely to return from a hamstring injury and Harris is critical to not give up the big play. Without Harris in the line-up of the Bears’ defense has been reduced to the second to last in the NFL in yards given up. This is due to lack of experience in the safety position. The Bears have been rotating Brandon Meriweather (new system), the largest Wright (no experience), and Craig Steltz (blah). If Chris Harris not play in the game, Calvin Johnson expected to go for 200 yards receiving. Last week, Steve Smith had 181 yards and could have been 200 if not overthrow Newton Cam in a couple of passes. The game is 11 hours, Crouch CHICAGO!
