Welcome back, gang. Hope you guys are staying warm, though if you're reading this you definitely opted for the couch and frankly I cannot blame you.
In case you skipped literally every article written about the Bears this week, you know that the Bears' divisional run basically begins today. That's exciting! With the 3-5 Lions in town, Mitch Trubisky will get another crack at his first NFC North win, and we'll get a chance to see just how legitimate the Bears' title aspirations are.
255 - Things are going less terrifically! Stafford gets the Lions into the end zone and uh it's kinda close now. BEARS 34, LIONS 22.
235 - things are going terrifically!
Bears have sacked Matthew Stafford 6 times today, and Khalil Mack has two of those. And now Prince Amukamara picks off Stafford on fourth down early in the 4th quarter.— Colleen Kane (@ChiTribKane) November 11, 2018
218- TOUCHDOWN BEARS. Trubisky hits Robinson again for a 26 yard TD. Robinson now has 5 catches for 125 yards and 2 TDs, so, he's done okay today. BEARS 34, LIONS 10.
203 - take your mind of all the boinks with this lil' gem:
156- Uh, that's 4 boinks now. Parkey has a BAD case of the yips.
155- Ooof. Cody Parkey misses a field goal and he's now boinked 3 kicks today. BUT Adrian Amos forces a fumble on the Lions' first play and the BEARS ARE BACK IN BUSINESS AGAIN.
150 - tuck the ball, Anthony!
150- Trubisky connects to Anthony Miller for another big gain (58 yards) and the Bears are in business again. Speaking of Trubisky:
Mitch Trubisky perfect passer rating alert 🚨🚨 🚨— NFL Research (@NFLResearch) November 11, 2018
At halftime, Trubisky is 14/16, 209 yards, 2 TD, 0 INT and a perfect 158.3 passer rating.
In the Super Bowl era, Vince Evans (in 1980) is only Bears QB to finish a game with a perfect passer rating.#DETvsCHI
140 - Some scoring updates for you: Detroit's kicker nails a 52 yard FG and now it's BEARS 26, LIONS 10. We're not going to get nervous *yet* but just know that we're rapidly approaching the edge.
104 - TOUCHDOWN BEARS. Trubisky runs it in from 4, and more importantly, Parkey nails the PAT. BEARS 27, LIONS 0. We might have ourselves a laugher on hand.
1249 - TOUCHDOWN BEARS. This time, Trubisky finds Anthony Miller for a 45 yard TD. Trubisky now is 12-of-13 for 206 yards and 2 TDs. Cody Parkey with another boink on the PAT, though, and boy that's an awkward situation the Bears have now. BEARS 19, LIONS 0.
1242 - not great, guys!
1234 - TOUCHDOWN BEARS. Trubisky is SLINGIN' it right now, and hits Allen Robinson for a 36 yard TD. Robinson already has almost 100 yards. BEARS 13, LIONS 0.

1225 - Right away, the Bears' D is getting to Stafford. Roquan Smith gets the sack on 3rd down, and the Bears already have 2 on the day:
1215 - helicopters!

1209 - TOUCHDOWN BEARS! Well that was fast. Trubisky connects on a big play with Allen Robinson, and then Cohen scoots in from 2 yards out. Cody Parkey boinks the PAT though. BEARS 6, LIONS 0.
