There’s a certain kicker in Baltimore whose name Detroit Lions fans won’t want to hear for a long time.
Despite almost upsetting one of the favorites to win the AFC in Week 3, the Lions now sit 0-3 as one of the five winless teams in the NFL.
Will Detroit finally score its first win of the season in Week 4?

Lions vs Bears Prediction Week 4
For all the hype surrounding Justin Fields, the Chicago Bears didn’t even come close to putting him in a position to succeed in his debut.
Fields was sacked 9 times against the Cleveland Browns in Week 3, and his 6-of-20 passing performance brings him to 14-of-35 for just 138 yards with 1 interception and no touchdowns on the season.
This Lions pass rush has been quietly impressive to start the season, sacking Aaron Rodgers 3 times in Week 2 and Lamar Jackson 4 times in Week 3. It’s hard to imagine Charles Harris, Romeo Okwara and company not getting home a few times in this one.
The Bears’ defense also isn’t exactly the strength it once was, ranking a lowly 29th in Pro Football Focus’ defensive grade.
Home field advantage or not, the Bears are going to have a tough time holding off the Lions. We’re picking an upset win for Detroit, 24-16.
