Chicago Bears (5-6) at Detroit Lions (3-7-1)

Thursday, November 28, 12:30PM ET

It hasn’t been a pretty past few games for the Chicago Bears, who rode their defense to a win against the hapless New York Giants. Despite a lackluster offense led by a lethargic Mitchell Trubisky, the Bears are doing their best to remain relevant.

It appears their efforts will continue to have effect in Week 13, when they visit their NFC North rivals, the Detroit Lions. Although their offense has been dismal at times this season, a divisional win seems likely considering their suffocating defense will be going up against Jeff Driskel, who’s coming off a three-interception performance.

More than likely, this will be a low-scoring affair, as both clubs have struggled lately to put points on the board. Trubisky can’t consistently move the ball down the field without putting it into the opponents’ hands, and Driskel has been similarly inefficient. Considering the Detroit defense is a mess, the Bears have the clear-cut edge in this one.

Neither of these teams is really worth consideration as we come down the final stretch of the season. With that said, I have to pick someone to come away with the W. In this instance, I’m rolling with the Bears to become the victors in the first Thanksgiving game of 2019.

Prediction: Bears win 16-10
