Bears vs. Lion Live Blog: Score, highlights, analysis from NFL Week 10 game

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. 

As always, J.J. Stankevitz will be your eyes and ears from Soldier; give him a follow. Lorin Cox's tweets are also worth your time. 

4th QUARTER

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! 

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. 

3rd QUARTER

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: 

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. 

2nd QUARTER

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! 


1st QUARTER

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.

Matt Nagy says 'earmuffs and blinders' are keys to offensive turnaround

Matt Nagy says 'earmuffs and blinders' are keys to offensive turnaround

Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy was so confident in the growth of his offense and his young quarterback this summer that he declared Mitch Trubisky a graduate of level 101 of his offense and onto level 202. He was a teacher more than a student.

Unfortunately, the first two weeks of the 2019 season haven't produced results that match that confidence. And of course, Nagy is searching for answers. In the meantime, he wants his players -- Trubisky included -- to ignore the outside noise.

"Making sure we have the earmuffs on and the blinders," Nagy said Thursday from Halas Hall. "And I say that. I mean that. It's hard in this world today because it's everywhere. People are talking and saying things, and when you're doing real well, everyone's all about it. When you're not doing well, everyone's all about it. So we have to make sure that we control what we can control and that's today's practice."

Those earmuffs and blinders better fit just right this week. Chicago plays in front of a national audience in Week 3's Monday night matchup against the Redskins; the outside chatter will turn deafening if the offense struggles against one of the NFL's worst defenses.

NFL Picks 2019, Week 3: Who are the experts taking in Bears vs. Redskins?

The Chicago Bears will be back in the national spotlight in Week 3's Monday night matchup against the Washington Redskins, and all eyes will be on QB Mitch Trubisky, who's quickly become the team's biggest question mark now that Eddy Pineiro proved to the Bears in Week 2's miracle finish at Denver that they no longer have a kicker problem.

The good news for Trubisky is that he'll finally face a defense unlikely to finish anywhere near the NFL's best this season. The Redskins rank near the bottom of the league in every significant category, including passing yards per game. By comparison, the Broncos are a top-three defense against the pass entering Week 3.

Chicago's favorable matchup has experts extremely confident in their ability to come away with the win. According to NFL Pick Watch, 81% of experts polled have the Bears coming out on top.

Let's be honest, Week 3 should be Chicago's most convincing victory of the early season. They lost a close game to one of the NFL's best teams in Week 1 against the Packers and Week 2's game against the Broncos was more than just a regular matchup; Denver's Vic Fangio had a greater advantage than any opposing defensive coordinator will have against the Bears this season because of his familiarity with the team.

As long as Khalil Mack, Eddie Goldman, Akiem Hicks, Eddie Jackson and the rest of Chicago's stars on defense remain healthy, the Bears should have little trouble moving to 2-1 Monday night.
