Ep: 310 – Chicago Bears Post Game – Detroit Lions Podcast

In this live episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris and Sandman kick off ‘Victory Sunday’ after the Lions win over the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field. It was a classic Lions comeback led by Matthew Stafford and with an unexpected game-changing play by the Lions defense. Lions interim coach Darrell Bevell manages to achieve in a single game what Matt Patricia never could in his tenure with Detroit, beat the Chicago Bears – something worth celebrating. Heads up, this is a celebratory podcast. Lions fans deserve to have some fun and enjoy the victory, to savor it, and we’re here to help.

Chicago Bears Kept Lions In The Game

The Chicago Bears just couldn’t put the Lions away today, they took the leads with an early field goal, but the Lions hung around within striking distance for the entire game. Then, it happened. The defense came up with a crucial turnover and Matthew Stafford led the Lions to another comeback victory. This one was sweeter. After having lost to the Chicago Bears in the last 4 meetings, getting a victory on Bevell’s first game at the helm meant a lot. The game was more fun to watch, and the team reacted well to Bevell.

Detroit Lions Podcast Sees Changes

Cory Undlin instituted a number of defensive changes, and they made a significant difference in the Lions results. So much so that the Lions only allowed 7 points in the second half. Previously the Lions have averaged more points allowed in the third quarter alone. We saw Matthew Stafford in the shotgun more than we used to, and to good effect. He was turned loose a bit more, and was able to do those Matthew Stafford things we’ve all grown to love. As a fan, the game was a heck of a lot more fun to watch. Overall a good game, with an excellent result and one worth celebrating. The Lions have a long road to recovery ahead, but this was the first step.
