Playing without Matthew Stafford, the Lions aren’t rolling over in the second half against Chicago.
The team’s rebuilt defensive line stuffed the Bears on four straight plays from the one-yard line early in the quarter while playing with a 14-13 lead.
Matt Forte was stuffed three times out of four, and Jay Cutler threw an incomplete pass. The Bears struggled earlier in the game on the goal line too.
Many folks will question Lovie Smith’s decision to go for it on fourth down. We’d rather question the team’s inability to develop any offensive linemen that can run block.
The Bears have about four minutes left to stop the Lions and save Smith from hitting the hot seat rather early.
