Series History: The Chicago Bears lead the series 99-74-5 and won both of their meetings last season
Bears are 2.5pt favorites against Detroit
On Trubisky: "Play Mitch Trubisky this season and pray like hell the light goes on — their shortest route to success remains having a functional quarterback on a rookie salary. Next year, the Bears must replace backup Chase Daniel with a quarterback — Marcus Mariota? Cam Newton? — to truly compete with Trubisky for the starting job Free agency seems the likely path for a team with so few draft picks" (Finley, 11/8, Sun-Times)
Lies, Damn Lies and Statistics: "the Bears' defense still ranks favorably through Week 9 when compared to last year’s juggernaut. In 2018, the Bears' defense was fourth in yards per play, third in total opponent QBR, fourth in points per game and fifth in yards per rush. This season, Chicago is once again fourth in yards per play, ninth in total opponent QBR, sixth in points per game and fourth in yards per rush. The big difference is in the takeaway department. The Bears have forced 11 turnovers compared to 21 at this time last year" (Dickerson, 11/8, ESPN)
