The Bears defense has not been at its best

in the fourth quarter this season Jordan Howard Color Rush Jersey , but they saved their best for last on Thanksgiving.Safety Eddie Jackson returned an interception 41 yards for a touchdown with six minutes left in the fourth quarter and cornerback Kyle Fuller picked off Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford in the end zone with just over a minute to play. Tarik Cohen would run for a first down with the help of guard James Daniels on third-and-nine to ice the 23-16 win in Detroit.Jackson’s touchdown was the sixth of the year for the Bears defense, his third of the year and the fifth of his NFL career. Jackson was a rookie in 2017, so he’s been very busy on that front.It was a snoozy first half for both teams offensively, but things picked up after the break. Chase Daniel was 27-of-37 for 230 yards and two touchdowns in his first start since 2014 and also caught a pass from wide receiver Anthony Miller on a double pass. The Lions didn’t allow Chicago much on the ground, so Daniel’s performance was all the more vital on Thursday.LeGarrette Blount had his biggest day of the year for the Lions, who came into the game without the services of Kerryon Johnson due to a knee injury. Blount ran 19 times for 88 yards, caught a pass for 15 yards and scored a pair of touchdowns.Blount getting some traction on the ground led to some success in play action for the Lions and their passing game perked up as the afternoon unfolded. They almost hit on a game-tying touchdown on their final offensive possession, but Kenny Golladay couldn’t hold onto a Stafford throw and Fuller picked off the next pass to seal the win.The Lions could have used more of that dynamism early in the game as they limited Stafford to short stuff with Marvin Jones out of the lineup. Stafford would hit Golladay with one deep shot Eddie Jackson Jersey , but the attempts to stretch the field need to come more often if a quarterback with Stafford’s arm at your disposal.The Bears will visit the Giants in Week 13 and hope to have Mitchell Trubisky back from his shoulder injury for that contest. The Lions will be hosting the Rams and it feels like that will officially kick off the playing out the string portion of the Detroit season.Chicago Bears: Week 7 game balls after the first home loss of the year For the first time in the 2018 season, the Bears have lost in back-to-back weeks. Sunday’s loss against the New England Patriots drops the team’s overall record to 3-3. For a second straight week, there were plenty of ups and downs but once again, the Bears hung tough and lost by one score. Despite going down 14 points midway through the fourth quarter, they fought back and were one yard away from either tying the game or winning it (pending head coach Matt Nagy’s decision on the PAT). Regardless, this marks the third time in as many loses that the Bears have lost by seven points or less.At some point the Bears will have to figure out how to win the close games but for now, this is a young team with a lot of talent learning how to play together and ultimately win.For more on who earned Sunday’s game balls, let’s dive in.TE Trey BurtonMike DiNovo-USA TODAY SportsBurton’s performance on Sunday showed exactly why the team gave him a four-year https://www.thebearsfanshop.com/Allen-Robinson-Jersey , $32 million deal in the off-season.The former Eagle lead all Bears pass catchers with nine catches for 126 yards and a touchdown. Not only did he pile up more than 100 yards through the air but he was second in targets and caught every ball thrown his way in a game where there were plenty of catch-able passes that hit the ground.Currently, Burton is on pace for 64 catches, 867 yards and 11 touchdowns. That would obviously be a career high on every category for the soon to be 27-year-old.Outside of Week 6, Burton’s targets, receptions, and yards have all trended upwards and fans can expect that to continue. It’s amazing how many times quarterback Mitchell Trubisky is able to find Burton wide open over the middle of the field, which is a testament to Burton’s route running ability.On a day where there was plenty of bad, Burton stuck out as one of the only consistent players on the offensive side of the ball.DL Bilal NicholsPhoto by Jonathan Daniel/Getty ImagesDon’t look now but it appears that general manager Ryan Pace has found himself yet another mid-round gem. This time in the form of the fifth-round rookie from Delaware. Nichols’ numbers on paper aren’t eye-popping (four tackles Chase Daniel Color Rush Jersey , a forced fumbled, tackle-for-loss and a quarterback hit) but his impact on the game was more than noticeable. Especially in a game where the defense struggled to get to Tom Brady or play consistently enough to win the game.The rookie’s 34 snaps (53%), led the three-player rotation of Jonathan Bullard (21 snaps) and Roy Robertson-Harris (17 snaps). Nichols’ first step has been quite noticeable, dating back to the preseason. But as he has become more comfortable in his first NFL defense, his production and overall impact has continued to grow as well. His forced fumble of Sony Michel in the first half way a big moment and allowed the Bears to take a 17-7 lead. He was also one of the few players to actually get a hand on Brady.Overall, this was a big performance for the rookie and one that should give the Bears more hope that once Khalil Mack returns to health, this front seven can get back to the dominant force it was in the first four games of the season.Honorable Mention: CB Kyle FullerQuinn Harris-USA TODAY SportsIn a game where not much went right on either side of the ball, Fuller’s performance was enough to get him this week’s honorable mention.Fuller had a rough start to the season and has still yet to consistently play up to the standard he set last season. Even so Bennie Fowler III Jersey , he notched his third interception of year in a big spot and finished the game with a pair of batted down passes.With Prince Amukamara working his way back to full health due to a groin issue, and Bryce Callahan’s ankle injury popping up late last week, Fuller has been asked to step up and face team’s number one receivers the past few weeks and has done a pretty nice job in doing so.Sunday’s performance was just another step in the right direction for the former first round pick.
