Carolina Panthers

Three Takeaways from the Detroit Lions loss to the Chicago Bears, keeping them last in the NFC North at 3-6.

1. The defense didn’t help the offense and the offense didn’t help the defense

Right from the start of this game, the Lions defense could not stop the Bears offense. The Bears scored on every possession in the 1st half of the game while the Lions offense was only able to put up seven points in the 1st half. But, when the defense made adjustments and were able to get a few stops in the 2nd half, the offense wasn’t able to return the favor as they would either turn the ball over or struggle to get 1st downs. This is why the lead was so large for the Bears that the Lions couldn’t try and comeback from it. 

2. Darius Slay was clearly missed this game

The Bears receivers had a field day against the Lions secondary in this game. Allen Robinson was one of them as he had his best game of the season with two touchdowns and 133 yards. Darius Slay missed this game with a knee injury and he would’ve probably been the one to guard Robinson this game. But, none of the secondary was really able to get a stop so Slay would’ve been able to only do so much for the defense.

 

3. Nobody really stuck out this game

There really wasn’t anybody or anything that really impressed this game. The defense looked bad from the start, the offense was bad too, and special teams were average.

This game was bad for the Lions as soon as the opening kickoff happened. This loss keeps Detroit at the bottom of the NFC North and there was truly nothing positive to come out of this game. Things are only looking worse for the team as they lost both big divisional games that were going to determine where their season was headed. The Lions host the Panthers next week and Carolina is looking for revenge after their embarrassment against the Steelers. With how bad the Lions have played recently and a playoff team coming into Ford Field next week, the rest of this season may be dark for Lions fans.

Searcy missed 8 games of the 2018 season due to a pair of concussions he suffered back in September, which proved to effectively end his season.
