NFL Week 15 Saturday Open Discussion Thread

NFL Week 15 Saturday Open Discussion Thread

The 7-6 Lions host the 4-9 Chicago Bears at Ford Field in a 4:30 p.m. contest. It really shows commitment that they have it perfectly in sync. which means at some point before all of this, the Lions players involved must have practiced. Rookie Tarik Cohen added a season-high 80 yards rushing. Stafford rolled to his right and found Jones right by the pylon.

NO KICK: The Bears have made a league-worst 70 percent of their field goals, and are using a third kicker, Mike Nugent, this season.

More winter weather on the way
Around 1 to 2 inches of snow is forecast , with the highest amounts across the NY city metro, Long Island, and southern CT . Saturday's high near 61 degrees includes sunny skies and southerly winds gusting as high as 20 miles per hour .

Bears running back Tarik Cohen almost scored on a huge kick return, however, it was later called back due to a holding penalty. The 92-yard drive gave the Lions a 13-0 second-quarter lead over the Bears, and it was thanks in large part to the kind of play Marvin Jones is proving he can make that few other receivers can. Abdullah missed two weeks with a neck injury, although there were reports he was out last week more for performance-related reasons than his health. Guard T.J. Lang, who had been listed as questionable with a foot injury, is active and will start against the Chicago Bears. But safety Adrian Amos, who has been out since Week 12 against the Eagles with a hamstring injury, will not play.
