Jackson's pick-six lifts Bears over Lions

The Lions did start relatively well, becoming the first team to lead Chicago in a month when Blount ran for his first of two touchdowns early in the second quarter.

Vic Fangio: Stayed the Bears' defensive coordinator, now is the mastermind (or "evil genius", as Khalil Mack called him) behind the league's best defense.

The Detroit Lions will be without two key offensive players when they play the Chicago Bears on Thursday.

Maybe it was the short week and getting their backup QB ready for Thursday's game plan, but if the Bears are going to compete in January we should all hope we don't see it again.

The Bears are coming off their most impressive win of the season, a 25-20 decision over division rival Minnesota. He indicated afterward that the Lions prioritized quick passes to deal with Chicago's pass rush.

Kyle Fuller followed Jackson's interception with another pick in the end zone on third-and-nine from the Bears' 11-yard line to lock up Chicago's first divisional road victory since Thanksgiving Day in 2015.

Matthew Stafford completed 28 of 38 passes for 236 yards for Detroit (4-7) but threw two key fourth-quarter interceptions. The Lions drafted Stafford No. 1 overall in 2009 and gave him a $135 million, five-year extension last year.

"Got to see (Jackson) a little better than I did", Stafford said.

"That was a difference in the game today, winning by that touchdown with Eddie", Bears head coach Matt Nagy said. Now it's what are they going to have to do to win playoff games?

Thursday was another one of those occasions as they Bears beat Lions on a Thanksgiving afternoon in Detroit.

It's becoming a tradition for fans of the team or the media that cover them, and it's the simplest to get knowledge. "I know that. And for us, we got to make sure in these situations that we're doing the right thing". "Put it in where I thought was going to be a good spot, and just wasn't". Think of Tarik Cohen - the other fourth-rounder from 2017 - who scored a touchdown on a pass from Daniel then got help on a game-clinching third-down run by James Daniels (2nd round, 2018). But before that, Daniel did lead multiple scoring drives.
