The Bears though they knew what look the Lions defense would give them on fourth-and-one about three minutes into the second quarter. They were wrong.
The Sun-Times’ experts offer their picks for the Bears’ game Sunday in Cleveland:
Fields is going back to the scene of the Bears’ biggest crime as an offense.
Eberflus said the team met with its analytics guru, Harrison Freid, and decided “what’s best for our football team, based on the strength of the opponent in terms of their offense and defense.”
The veteran defensive end is out for the season after breaking his ankle against the Lions on Sunday. DeMarcus Walker is first in line to replace Ngakoue — who had four sacks in 13 games — followed by Rasheem Green and Dominique Robinson.
After struggling to find a groove amid high expectations following his impressive rookie season, the second-year safety from Penn State has been making a bigger impact in recent games — including 17 tackles against the Lions on Sunday.
Moore twisted his ankle Sunday when he was tackled alongside the Bears sideline after a four-yard run on the team’s first play of the second half.
Owners voted Wednesday to add a game in Sao Paulo in 2024, marking the fifth continent in which the league has played. The NFL will play three games in London again next year as well as a game in Munich.

GM Ryan Poles has some big decisions to make, but with an improving defense, a developing offensive line and likely the No. 1 pick in the draft, the Bears will be headed in the right direction in 2024 whether or not Matt Eberflus is the coach, Luke Getsy is the offensive coordinator and Justin Fields is the quarterback.

With four games left, the numbers give the Bears near-certainty that they’ll at least pick in the top three.
Defensive end Myles Garrett and the Browns are No. 1 in yards allowed but tied for 14th in points allowed — giving up 24 points or more vs. the Jaguars, Rams, Broncos and Ravens in the past five games. So it’s a challenge, but also an opportunity for Fields and Getsy.
Fields has room to grow, to be sure, but Sunday he led the Bears to their most impressive win in two years.
Bears coach Matt Eberflus says he is “very active” in voicing concerns to the league office and officials.
The win over the Lions was the Bears’ first victory after a bye in 10 years.
“That’s unheard of,” coach Matt Eberflus said. “That’s amazing. What Brisker brings is the reason we drafted him.”
