Bottom Line: Bounce Back Game
Yes, the Detroit Lions got the job done in Week 10 against the Los Angeles Chargers, but the defense did not look pretty at all as they have up 38 points. Yes, the Lions offense is good enough to win a shootout against an average team like the Chargers, but I am not sure sure that will happen against the top teams in the NFL. With that being said, the Lions' defense has an opportunity to bounce back today against the last-place Chicago Bears, and I think they will do exactly that.
