It’s positive when a team gets the production of a backup quarterback as Bears came from Chase Daniel (27/37, 230 meters, 2 TD, 0 INT, 106.8 fits grades). But consider the circumstances under which Daniel wrote these numbers: In a short week where Bears’s offense was not full-time work during walkthrough practice, and almost four years ago he last started a regular season game.
Daniel not only took care of the football – Bears only turnover came when Trey Burton lost a fumble – but he made a number of important rolls. After the bells dropped behind 7-0 after Burton fumbled, Daniel Allen Robinson scored for a 29-yard win on the third and 1
3th, and a small disturbance of Tarik Cohen was removed from getting a touchdown on that device. Then, with the ball a little before the two minute warning, Daniel Bears marched 65 meters on five gigs for a forward-looking touchdown just before half-time.
And immediately after Detroit took the lead late in the third quarter, Daniel again scored a scoreboard, this time the lion struck 82 yards on eight plays (Daniel also took a pass from Anthony Miller on it). His 14-yard throw to Cohen put the bear forward.
Danien’s 106.8 pass is fourth best of a Beer’s quarterback this year. For a frugal useful backup on short rest, what Daniel did was no less than impressive.
RUNNING BACKS: B
Cohen and Mizzell both caught touchdowns, and Cohen should have had two had Daniel been able to join him in the late zone late in the first half. But Jordan Howard could not do much (seven berries, 13 meters) while half of this unit’s 34 rushing yards (on 11 tries) came on a 10-yard bear of Cohen and a seven farm one of Mizzell. Cohens 10-farm continues third-sealed Bears’ win. Four of Taylor Gabriel’s seven receptions went for the first time, including a critical eight farms in the third and third close midfield early in the fourth quarter (Bears turned to conversion, later to a touchdown) . Robinson’s 29-yard grip, which he did well to beat cornerback Darius Slay, was another critical third downturn. And Anthony Muller’s 26-yard reception came two gigs before Daniel beat Mizzell for a touchdown. Full credit goes to this group to be largely on time with Daniel and make things easy for a backup quarterback.
TIGHT ENDS: D
Burton lost a fumble, dropped a passport and committed a punishment penalty, with the fumble becoming a Lions touchdown and the other two mistakes resulted in Bears having to dunk. Burton caught four of seven goals for 28 yards, while Ben Braunecker and Daniel Brown played a little but did not impact.
OFFENSIVE LINE: B +
This group did not generate much in terms of a consistent run, but was outstanding in protecting Daniel. While being detained four times, Daniel took charge of them after the match, and Charles Leno Jr. and Bobby Massie’s work was particularly impressive (and it should be said – has been throughout the year). James Daniels also had a strong game and almost literally carried Bears over the finish line with his attempt to get Cohen a first down that allowed the bears to kneel to finish the game.
CAUTION LINE: B
Eddie Goldman and Akiem Hicks played well, but LeGarrete Blount had one of the better games a back has had against Bears defense this year (19 berries, 88 meters, two touchdowns) . Goldman and Roy Robertson-Harris were the only two defensive line men to record a print also, with one per Pro Football Focus.
WITHOUT LINEBACKERS: B
Leonard Floyd played well against the race and had four presses, while Khalil Mack did well in the running game but had a quiet pass vote this afternoon. This group probably missed Aaron Lynch, who was out of concussion because Kylie Fitts and Isaiah Irving were only combined to play 10 snaps, which requires Mack and Floyd to be on the field quite.
INSIDE LINEBACKERS: A
Roquan Smith had a spectacular game, a total of 11 high tacks and crushed a bag and a push that forced a throwaway and led to a point. His continued ascension has been an important aspect of building the bears to the best defense in NFL. Danny Trevathan also had a strong game – his unlucky deflection of a Matthew Stafford pass led to a fourth down-conversion and a Lions score, but there was not much else he could have done on the game. He blew a screen for a loss of six that forced a point in the third quarter as well.
DEFENSIVE BACKS: A
Eddie Jackson’s pick-six and Kyle Fuller’s final son-whisper were two knockouts, the kind of playing a fatigue Bears defense needed to end a victory in their second game of 88 hours. This group had some early mistakes – Jackson showed up on a screening card for Theo Riddick in the first quarter and Adrian Amos could not take Blount down on his first touchdown. But Prince Amukamara played well throughout the match and Deon Bush hit home on a bag when Vic Fangio caught him on a flash of Detroit’s Hail Mary attempts to finish the first half.
SPECIAL TEAMS: B
Pat O & # 39; Donnell started with a number of good points, which combined with good tackles by Joel Iyiegbuniwe and Sherrick McManis helped the bear to keep the top edge in the field position battle in the first half. O & # 39; Donnell’s second half was not as strong-he reached a tip inside 20, but only 22 yards went to the 18 yard line, and he boomed a tip in the end zone after that. Cody Parkey scored his only field goal attempt, good from 40 yards, making both his extra points as well. In the return game, Cohen had a nice 17-yards scamper at one point, while Mizzell only managed 17 meters on a high-kickback in the fourth quarter.
COACHING: A +
Capture Matt Nagy’s call to go for two or his reluctance to commit to the race. But winning this game was a tremendous achievement for Nagy and his coaching staff – and it should also be said to Bears training staff. No team had ever played two matches in as short as Bears did from Sunday evening to Thursday afternoon. And Nagy had to win the back of that stretch with a backup quarterback who barely had time to prepare for the game. This was a total team effort to win on Thursday, but it started with Nagy and the tone he sat in the immediate aftermath of Sunday’s victory over Minnesota Vikings.
“I think it only really shows how strong we are mental and it starts with the coach,” said Amukamara. That a defensive player said it is also remarkable.
