    As Cairo Santos sent a 28-yard field goal through the uprights while the seconds wound down Thursday afternoon, he saved the Chicago Bears from a bad week turning into an even bigger embarrassment. The Bears didn’t need to give the Detroit Lions their first win of the season on Thanksgiving at Ford Field. Not after Bears rookie Justin Fields injured his ribs and was forced to sit out. Not after a report emerged that Bears ownership told coach Matt Nagy it was going to fire him after the Thanksgiving game. Not after Nagy’s bosses left him to refute the report to the media himself. Santos’ field goal in the final seconds lifted the Bears to a 16-14 victory over the Lions that snapped a five-game losing streak and ended a nightmare of a week. Bears quarterback Andy Dalton, filling in for the injured Fields, completed 24 of 39 passes for 317 yards with a touchdown and an interception to lead the Bears to the victory. The winning drive included a nice play on third-and-5 in...
    The Bears leaked Matt Nagy’s potential firing just to ‘galvanize’ the locker room ahead of a Thanksgiving matchup with the winless Lions. If you need to put your head coach through what can only be described as a week of complete hell just to beat the Detroit Lions, then you’re managing your football team wrong. Yes, I’m talking directly to you, Ryan Pace and the Chicago Bears front office. Per Ian Rapoport, “amid a report about a potential firing, #Bears coach Matt Nagy gets a Thanksgiving W with a last-second FG. The hope was the report would galvanize the locker room. For this week, it all results in a win.” Yay? Either the Bears are trying to spin Nagy’s perseverance in an attempt to keep him on board far longer than most fans would like, or they actually used the media to scare their head coach into winning football games. Either way it’s weird. Bears need to fire Matt Nagy soon despite winBeating the Lions is not an example of a team turning things around. If anything, the Bears won...
    Inside Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barkers Cabo Family Trip: Photos Use this checklist to get your finances in order before 2022 Much has been said and written over the past several days about whether or not Baker Mayfield can be the franchise quarterback the Cleveland Browns have been searching for since 1999. Two things nobody can deny are Mayfield's toughness and the fact the 26-year-old is hurting ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday. © Brian Fluharty-USA TODAY Sports Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield Mayfield was already battling through a serious setback that includes a torn labrum and fractured bone at the top of the humerus of his non-throwing shoulder before he encountered recent foot and knee issues. Per Jake Trotter of ESPN, though, Mayfield told reporters Wednesday he's planning to start for the 5-5 Browns for Sunday's home game versus the 0-8-1 Detroit Lions even though he admitted he's "probably the most beat up" he's been during his entire career.  "The outside of my knee is sore and tender, but that numbness where you can't feel your leg is pretty...
    Getty Josh Reynolds catches a pass in the 2021 playoffs against the Packers. The Detroit Lions have waiver priority thanks to their 0-8 record, and that proved to be a major advantage that helped them land wide receiver Josh Reynolds. Reynolds hit waivers after his release from the Tennessee Titans on Tuesday, November 9, and it didn’t take him long to find a new home. The Lions snapped Reynolds up on Wednesday afternoon, utilizing their first waiver claim to add a major option for their down field passing attack. The latest Lions news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Lions newsletter here! Join Heavy on Lions! Reynolds very nearly went to another destination, and he would not have passed through waivers if the Lions hadn’t made the claim. As ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported, the Los Angeles Rams also put a claim in on Reynolds, but he did not make it down the pecking order to the team because the Lions made the claim and had priority.

    Rookie Justin Fields brushed off a nightmarish first start, and the Chicago Bears bounced back from one of the worst offensive performances the NFL has seen to beat the winless Detroit Lions 24-14 on Sunday. Fields and the Bears (2-2) were in much better form coming off a brutal loss at Cleveland last week. They rang up 373 yards after being held by the Browns to 47, the ninth-lowest total in league history. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Fields looked more comfortable, completing 11 of 17 passes for 209 yards and an interception in his second consecutive start with Andy Dalton sidelined because of a bone bruise in his left knee. The No. 11 overall draft pick was sacked just once, after being taken down nine times for 67 yards while throwing for just 68 the previous week.

    GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Aaron Jones caught three of Aaron Rodgers’ four touchdown passes and rushed for a fourth score, and the Green Bay Packers had a welcome return to normal after an embarrassing opening-week loss, beating the Detroit Lions 35-17 on Monday night. Green Bay (1-1) won its ninth straight home opener. The Packers, who got thumped 38-3 by the New Orleans Saints in Week 1, looked more like the team that went 13-3 in each of coach Matt LaFleur’s first two seasons. Rodgers went 22 of 27 for 255 yards and surpassed John Elway for 10th all-time in passing yards with 51,633. Rodgers has followed up each of the Packers’ last five regular-season losses by throwing four touchdown passes and no interceptions in his next game. Jones became the first Packers running back to catch three touchdown passes in a game since Andy Uram against the Chicago Cardinals in 1942. He had 17 carries for 67 yards and six catches for 48 yards. Detroit’s Jared Goff completed 13 of his first 14 passes but struggled the rest...
    The Indianapolis Colts' depth chart at quarterback took another hit. Rookie Sam Ehlinger was knocked out of the preseason finale with a knee injury in a 27-17 win over the Detroit Lions on Friday night. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "It didn’t look good," Colts coach Frank Reich said. "We need to wait for the doctors' final say." With Carson Wentz recovering from foot surgery, Ehlinger is competing with second-year quarterback Jacob Eason to possibly take the team's first snap in two weeks when the season opens. Ehlinger was hurt in the first half after he was 3 for 3 for 63 yards, including a 60-yard pass after escaping a sack, and had a 14-yard run. Eason was 10 of 14 for 74 yards. To keep Eason healthy for Week 1, the Colts let 28-year-old Brett Hundley finish the game under center and he took full advantage. Hundley threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Deon Jackson and the rookie running back rushed for a tying, 2-point conversion. A few snaps later, linebacker Curtis Bolton intercepted David Blough's...

    ENGLAND are in the final of a major tournament for the first time since 1966 after edging out Denmark in a nail-biting semi-final. The Three Lions fell behind through Mikkel Damsgaard's brilliant free-kick after 30 minutes. 7Harry Kane's winner sends England wildCredit: The Sun 7Raheem Sterling forced an own goal to bring England levelCredit: Getty But they were level before half-time when Simon Kjaer put through his own net under the pressure of Raheem Sterling. The Manchester City star then played a key role in the winner with nothing to separate the two sides after 90 minutes. In the first period of extra-time, Sterling was bundled to the ground in the box and the referee controversially pointed to the spot.

    THIBODAUX, La. (AP) — Cole Kelley passed for 391 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions on Saturday and Southeastern Louisiana rallied for a 52-45 win over Nicholls State in the River Bell Classic. With the win, Southeastern Louisiana (4-2, 4-2 Southland Conference), ranked 23rd in the FCS Top 25, kept its hope alive for an at-large selection in the FCS playoffs. The Lions will face Southern Illinois on Saturday to close their season. Nicholls State (4-3, 3-3), ranked 18th, finished its season on Saturday and was effectively knocked out of playoff consideration with the loss. The Lions returned two interceptions for touchdowns in the third quarter and scored three touchdowns by their offense in the second half to turn a 10-point deficit from late in the first half into a 52-38 lead. Ferlando Jordan’s interception and 35-yard TD return tied it at 24 for the Lions in the first minute of the third quarter, and Jack Henderson’s interception and 23-yard TD return gave the Lions a 38-30 lead late in the third. Nicholls State’s Kevin Moore III sacked Kelley...
    ENGLAND icon John Barnes believes James Maddison should be Gareth Southgate’s No10 at the Euros instead of Jack Grealish or Phil Foden.

Indeed, the England boss has a number of talented midfield game changers at his disposal. But Southgate’s insistence at playing five defenders plus two holding midfielders means there’s just THREE places left in the starting XI. Two of those are expected to go to Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling, with the final one up for grabs. Aston Villa captain Grealish, 25, appears to be in pole position, having been capped five times last year. Meanwhile,...

    The Detroit Lions will play their first game Sunday since the firing of former head coach Matt Patricia. The Lions will take the field against the Bears, and it feels like there’s a new energy in the organization. Patricia was fired last week after multiple years of disappointing results.

    The Houston Texans are slated to take on the Detroit Lions in a Thanksgiving Day game. JJ Watt has become a subject of discussion after his performance against the New England Patriots. In a rare win for the Texans, Watt played a fantastic game. He had 2 important solo tackles that helped the Texans secure the W. NFL analyst Peter Schrager spoke on Good Morning Football. Schrager was very complimentary towards Watt’s performance against the Patriots. “You know who played well last week?… Watt showed up last week.

    Getty T.J. Hockenson celebrates his score in Atlanta. The Detroit Lions had arguably the craziest finish in the NFL the season against the Atlanta Falcons, and perhaps shockingly, they came out on the winning end of a close game. With time running down and a 16-14 deficit, the Falcons made the critical error of scoring when they could have run out the clock and simply kicked a field goal to win. The play ended up costing them dearly, as the Lions moved down the field surgically, hitting a few big plays to Kenny Golladay. With 2 seconds left, Matthew Stafford scrambled and hit T.J.

    Did Indiana quarterback Michael Penix Jr. reach the pylon before the ball hit out of bounds? It was almost too close to call, and sure to be the source of frame-by-frame breakdowns on Penn State blogs over the next week. The Hoosiers got the benefit of the doubt on the game-winning 2-point conversion in a 36-35 thriller with the eighth-ranked Nittany Lions on Saturday at Memorial Stadium. It’s the first controversial play of the Big Ten season, but Penn State put itself in that position with a mistake-filled debut unbecoming of a top-10 team.
