But the Chicago Bears look to feast on the winless Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day. It’s the second meeting of the season between two franchises that have met at least once every year since 1930. Back in Week 4 at Soldier Field, the Chicago Bears held on to defeat the Detroit Lions, 24-14. Rookie quarterback Justin Fields made his second NFL start, throwing for 209 yards and an interception. This time around, Andy Dalton will get the start for Matt Nagy’s team this week as Fields is dealing with injured ribs. It should be noted that the Lions are winless in their last 14 games dating back to Week 14 of 2020. After a 3-2 start this year, the Bears are in the midst of five-game losing streak. 5. Bears...
    PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger doesn’t want to hear it. Sure, the Pittsburgh Steelers have won four straight to recover from a 1-3 start and find themselves in the mix in the unpredictable AFC North. But that doesn’t mean their longtime quarterback thinks his team is any good. Or at least good enough to meet the standard he has played a pivotal part in helping set during his 18 years on the job. So no, Roethlisberger and the Steelers (5-3) aren’t taking anything for granted when winless Detroit (0-8) visits Heinz Field on Sunday. “We’ve got a winning record, but if you ask most of the guys, I think, in this building would tell you we’ve got a long way to go,” Roethlisberger said. He’s not lying. The Steelers hardly looked dominant during last week’s 29-27 escape against Chicago, a game in which a 10-point lead with 12 minutes to go evaporated, forcing Roethlisberger to orchestrate the 38th fourth-quarter comeback of his career. The ease with which Pittsburgh went 52 yards in 76 seconds to set up Chris Boswell’s...
    Long story short, here are my NFL picks for Week 6 action that marks the start of byes, including the 49ers’: Buccaneers 28, Eagles 14: Tom Brady’s fingerprints – bad thumb and all – are all over this win, which comes against the last franchise to beat him in a Super Bowl, four seasons ago. Line: Bucs -7 Jaguars 26, Dolphins 24: The Jaguars return to London as Trevor Lawrence’s first win comes abroad (no Urban Meyer pun, intended). Line: Jaguars +3 1/2 Ravens 25, Chargers 24: Just when the Chargers were looking like everyone’s Super Bowl pick, Baltimore wins its fifth straight. Line: Chargers +3 Panthers 21, Vikings 20: The last time Minnesota won away from home – not counting Detroit, everyone’s home away from home – was last November 16 (at Chicago). Line: Panthers +1 Packers 31, Bears 17: Chicago’s defense allowed 34 points in an opening loss to the Rams, whose offense has some similarities as the Packers’. Line: Packers -4 1/2 Bengals 29, Lions 28: The Lions haven’t won …...
    STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Penn State has already won big games in marquee environments, using big plays and a stingy defense to do so. None of the No. 4 Nittany Lions’ victories has left the team’s biggest players satisfied, however. The 300-pounders up front are eager to get another shot when Indiana (2-2, 0-1 Big Ten) visits Beaver Stadium on Saturday night. “We focused on our mission for this week, which is physicality,” right tackle Caedan Wallace said. “It’s collective, the front seven and the running backs. We’re going to improve this week. We’re going to run the ball.” The Nittany Lions (4-0, 1-0) know a run to their first College Football Playoff appearance won’t be possible unless they can. Even with a 48-carry, 240-yard effort against Ball State, the Nittany Lions are ranked 111th in rushing offense so far. While they’ve settled in with a strong starting five — tackles Wallace and Rasheed Walker, guards Juice Scruggs and Eric Wilson centered by Mike Miranda — the group hasn’t yet played with the mindset that position coach Phil Trautwein...
    GREEN BAY, WISCONSIN – SEPTEMBER 20: Aaron Jones #33 of the Green Bay Packers wears a sombrero after scoring a touchdown against the Detroit Lions during the second half at Lambeau Field on September 20, 2021 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. (Photo by Quinn Harris/Getty Images) The Packers bounced back from a horrific Week 1 loss to the Saints by knocking off the Lions in Week 2. Can they win again this week against the 49ers? Packers fans have every right to be confused about just how good or bad their favorite team is after two weeks of NFL action. Green Bay managed to erase many of the bad memories from Week 1’s debacle against the Saints by cruising past the Lions in Week 2. This Sunday they face a serious step up in competition in the form of the 49ers. San Francisco will arrive at Lambeau Field sporting a 2-0 record that might overstate their accomplishments on the young season. Kyle Shanahan’s team held off a late comeback by Detroit to defeat the Lions 41-33 in Week 1. They followed...
    JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA – SEPTEMBER 12: Aaron Rodgers #12 of the Green Bay Packers looks on prior to the the game against the New Orleans Saints at TIAA Bank Field on September 12, 2021 in Jacksonville, Florida. (Photo by Sam Greenwood/Getty Images) Week 1 was a complete disaster for the Packers. Here are five bold predictions about how Green Bay is going to bounce back against the Lions.  The Packers entered the 2021 regular season as legitimate Super Bowl contenders, but Aaron Rodgers and his teammates are reeling after a one-sided Week 1 loss to the Saints. That puts immense pressure on Green Bay to right the ship at home against the Lions in their Week 2 matchup. A loss to Detroit could send the Packers’ season spiraling out of control. The narrative that Aaron Rodgers’ unhappiness with the front office have already torpedoed the team’s chances of being a title contender this season is already starting to makes its rounds. The good news for Green Bay’s passionate fan base is that beating the Lions shouldn’t be all that difficult of...

    (CBS Minnesota) — The Green Bay Packers, behind NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers, dominated the NFC North last season. Rodgers returns under center for the Packers, despite some offseason drama that brought into question whether he would remain with the team. His presence solidifies Green Bay as the division favorite going into the season. The Minnesota Vikings, Detroit Lions, and Chicago Bears all have some questions at the quarterback position. Kirk Cousins has won one playoff game with the Vikings in his three seasons, despite what many considered playoff-caliber squads. Being unvaccinated, he could miss time this season due to illness and NFL protocols. The Lions traded away longtime leader Matthew Stafford for fellow former first-overall pick Jared Goff. The ex-Ram will look to overcome recent turnover issues in leading the subpar Lions. The Bears have their quarterback of the future in rookie Justin Fields. But he will be watching Andy Dalton from the sidelines until his chance arrives.

    Rep. Ayanna Pressley: What do you do when your very existence is resistance? Ex-Congressman Max Rose says he won’t run for NYC mayor It sure looked like the Rams got away with an offsides penalty on pick-6 against the Cardinals Sunday’s Week 17 matchup between the Los Angeles Rams and Arizona Cardinals had major playoff implications as the winner would lock up a postseason berth. And just for good measure: Both teams had to rely on backup quarterbacks to get them there. © Provided by For The Win An injured Jared Goff was ruled out ahead of Sunday’s game with John Wolford getting the start. Kyler Murray, who had been battling ankle issues, exited the game in the first half. He was replaced by backup Chris Streveler — a former CFL quarterback who is, uh, a downgrade from Murray. But man, Streveler didn’t get much help from the officiating crew on a crucial pick-six interception before halftime. Troy Hill takes it back 84 yards. @RamsNFL take the lead! #RamsHouse ????: #AZvsLAR on CBS ????: NFL app // Yahoo...
    (CBS Local)- Not to alarm you fantasy owners out there but it’s now crunch time of the 2020 season. Time is running out to lock down your spot in the playoffs. But, don’t fret, as always the Fantasy Football Today crew from CBS Sports is here to break down the matchups and give you advice on who to start and sit this week to best optimize your lineup and get the win you need. The start of the week this week is Carolina Panthers running back Mike Davis. Though he hasn’t done much is recent weeks, he has a favorable matchup on hand this weekend against a porous Detroit Lions defense. “We are very excited about Mike Davis for the first time in awhile. He hasn’t been great replacing Christian McCaffrey in of late but no McCaffrey this week against the Lions and boy, what a dream matchup it is,” said Jamey Eisenberg. “The Lions allow the most fantasy points to opposing running backs. They allow the most touchdowns to opposing running backs, 18 on the season, Mike Davis should...
    (CBSLOCAL)- The fantasy football playoffs are here for most leagues and lineup decisions are more crucial than ever. That title belt is within your reach and finding the right matchups to take advantage of or to avoid will be key in earning that championship. That is why, as always, we have brought in the experts from Fantasy Football Today to break down three matchups they like and three they don’t at each position heading into the weekend. The start of the week is Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery as the Bears take on the Detroit Lions and their porous run defense. “In a great spot this week taking on the Detroit Lions. They allow the most fantasy points to opposing running backs, 21 touchdowns to opposing running backs on the season. And, Montgomery coming off his best game to date, 100 yards rushing against the Packers,” said Jamey Eisenberg. San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert and New England Patriots running back James White join Montgomery in Jamey’s starts this week. For Heath Cummings, Seattle Seahawks running back Chris...
