Longtime division rivals clash in the Windy City as the offensively-challenged Chicago Bears host the winless Detroit Lions.
Last season in Week 13 at Soldier Field, the Detroit Lions handed the Chicago Bears a 34-30 loss – ending a five-game losing streak in the series. It also mark the last time the team from the Motor City won a game. There have been seven straight setbacks since as Dan Campbell’s team is off to a 0-3 start.
But the Bears haven’t been much better and were humbled at Cleveland last week. As these teams clash for the 183rd time dating back to 1930, what can we unexpectedly expect from Matt Nagy’s club?
5. Matt Nagy will use 2 quarterbacks on Sunday
Veteran Andy Dalton opened at the helm the first two games and rookie Justin Fields got the nod last week at Cleveland. So who will be the Chicago Bears’ starting quarterback on Sunday?
“All three are under consideration right now in regards to where they’re at, so we’ll just kind of have to see in the next couple days where they’re all at,” explained head coach Matt Nagy (via Jeff Dickerson of ESPN). “We know where Nick’s at, health-wise, but we just want to keep an eye on Justin and Andy. Then, for us to stay on that and make sure that we have a plan for any of those.”
That’s Nick as in Foles. And regardless of who begins the game vs. the Lions, don’t be shocked if the team utilizes more than one signal-caller vs. the Lions.
