Head coach Matt Nagy unleashed a fire hose on it Tuesday when he strode into the media room and announced that Mitch Trubisky has a sore right (throwing) shoulder and his status for the Bears' "Turkey Bowl" in Detroit is uncertain.

They put their faith in backup quarterback Chase Daniel, a guy who has started very few games since he entered the National Football League in 2009, to get a win at Ford Field in Detroit and help the Bears widen the gap between themselves in the rest of the NFC North. Daniel connected with running back Tarik Cohen and an extra point from PK Cody Parkey brought the Bears to 16 points, a three-point lead over the Lions at Ford Field.

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. They now have a commanding NFC North lead as they await their matchup with the lowly G-Men on December 2. It was part of one of the Bears' weirdest seasons where they had winning streaks of three and four games along with losing streaks of two, three, and four games. To be fair, a healthy amount of input on this decision came from Nagy, who worked with the quarterback during his time as an assistant in Kansas City. For the second time in as many weeks, the safety picked off a Matthew Stafford pass and went 41 yards for the score.

After watching Blount on Thursday I believe he can keep the running game going without a major drop off in production from that aspect of the offense. He even caught a pass from wideout Anthony Miller for eight yards.

Chicago responded less than two minutes into the fourth, sparking a scoring frenzy to finish the game.

If there's one thing Chicago Bears fans can be thankful for on Thanksgiving, it's their defense. "You know, we're really not paying attention to the outside", said Jackson.

"Yeah, no, I'm sure you guys can understand, I'm not going to get into the actual details of everything with his shoulder", he said.

The Lions (4-7) already have as many losses as they had all of last season, when they went 9-7 before firing coach Jim Caldwell and replacing him with Patricia.
