All teams involved today bowed last week: reactions expected
Kick-off this Thursday at 6.30 p.m.
Detroit Lions (0-9-1) – Chicago Bears (3-7)
The evening begins with a duel in NFC North. Two of the weakest teams in the league face each other. For the Lions, we won’t draw a picture for you. Detroit is the only team in NFL Not having won a game yet. But next Chicago, it’s not much better. Despite three wins, the season is very disappointing for this team that made it into the playoffs last year. So much so that it could be the last game Matt nagy at the top of the franchise. Definitely the opportunity to see if the locker room has let go of the trainer. On this Thursday he definitely has to compose without it Justin Fields (1361 yards, 4 TDs and 8 INTs + 311 yards on the ground and 2 TDs). The quarterback rookie is still injured and Andy Dalton (471 yards, 3 TDs and 1 INT) should be the holder. The strength of Bears in attack, however, the ground game remains (132.1 yards / running game, 6th in the league).
Good news for her because over against that Lions got a lot of trouble in this area (cashed 140.5 yards per game, 31 inches) NFL). Conversely, the ground play gradually becomes a force in the offensive Michigan. It’s easy By André Swift (137 runs, 555 yards and 4 TDs + 53 receptions, 420 yards and 2 TDs) simply becomes the best player on this team. In two weeks he recorded 266 yards and a touchdown. A great way to take the pressure off your shoulders Jared Goff (2109 yards, 8 TDs and 6 INTs) who should be back from an injury. Especially since the thrower could be under pressure during this game. Chicago is quite simply the team that fires the opposing quarterbacks the most (31, tied with Minnesota). the Bears stay out of 10 in the last two games. the Wear so go hunting Lions.
Kick-off this Thursday at 10.30 p.m.
Dallas Cowboys (7-3) – Las Vegas Raiders (5-5)
The rest of the evening takes place in the Texas with two teams who want / need to find some momentum. If that Cowboys had lost to Broncos, they had responded immediately by sending the Hawks the following week. We can therefore imagine that they have bounced back from this setback in the face of Chiefs. But the good news for Dallas becomes the combined return of Tyron blacksmith, missing for three games, and CeeDee lamb (740 yards and 6 TDs) came out last Sunday with a concussion. Amari Cooper (583 yards and 5 TDs) he should always be absent, to the chagrin of his team and Dak Prescott (2557 yards, 20 TDs and 7 INTs). For the first time since his job in 2018, he will not find his former team again. Different Rich Bissacia who will face him in a franchise whose special teams he coached between 2013 and 2017.
He is now at the head of Raider and after a good start (2 wins) it has been more complicated for several weeks (3 losses in a row). To change the situation, the technician identified two clear advances. The first is to reduce errors, Las Vegas is one of the teams that sees the most yellow fabric penalties in the league, including 14 false start penalties in 10 games. Then the visitors have to concentrate on the third attempts. For three weeks, the teammates from Derek carr (3,041 yards, 16 TDs and 9 INTs) are simply the last in this sector on either side of the field, with 21.4% of third attempts converted to attack and 53.5% allowed to defense. It’s difficult to be consistently offensive or defensive in these conditions.
Kick-off Thursday evening to Friday at 02:20 a.m.
New Orleans Saints (5-5) – Buffalo Bills (6-4)
Finally, this day of celebration ends with a bonus game in Louisiana. A meeting between bills and Saints who experienced the same phenomenon last weekend: They were humiliated in a field that they usually do so well. Before the 11th New Orleans and buffalo had some of the best ground defenses in the league. But each faced with Eagle and to Colt, the two franchises in this sector have completely exploded. Jalen hurts and Jonathan Taylor feasted, mainly responsible for the two defeats. These franchises must therefore react.
buffalo saw New England walk past him in theAFC East and before you twice the Patriots at the end of the season, bills must absolutely avoid another misstep. page New Orleans, Victory in NFC South Seems a bit far off now, but given the uncertainty in this conference, the playoffs are not out of reach. The problem is that there is the lack of James Winston (1170 yards, 14 TDs and 3 INTs) and the term of office of Trevor Siemian (920 yards, 8 TDs and 2 INTs), the Saints Have difficulty moving forward in attack. Especially as her best player Alvin Kamara (146 races, 530 yards and 3 TDs + 32 receptions, 310 yards and 4 TDs), accumulated absences. He will miss his third game in a row on Thursday.
