The Chicago Bears need to be more stout up the middle.
On Sunday afternoon, the Chicago Bears snuck out of Detroit with an improbable victory against the Lions. For most of the game, things did not go well for the Bears. This is particularly true in the run game, which must improve dramatically before this weekend’s game against Saquon Barkley and the New York Giants.
The team seemed to do a decent job against the run in the first half, but the Lions really wore them down as the game went on. Detroit finished the game with a total of 138 yards on 29 carries. They seemed to struggle the most trying to stop veteran Adrian Peterson who signed with the Lions just before the start of the season.
