“As someone who has been hard on an offensive coach or two in my time, the criticism of Matt Nagy this week has felt a little intense. To put it another way: Justin Fields is not the only rookie quarterback struggling badly this season, and we've been spoiled lately by guys like Justin Herbert, Lamar Jackson and even Kyler Murray, who transcended schemes from Day 1. Andy Dalton's return to practice muddies the waters here, but neither quarterback will need many points the way the Bears' defense is playing, currently ranking ninth in DVOA.”...

“My upset of the week is the Lions, who are playing hard each week for Dan Campbell, beating the Bears, who are struggling mightily with Matt Nagy.”...

“The Lions will get their first victory of the Dan Campbell era. Although last week's loss to Baltimore was stunning, there were also some positives to take away -- notably on the defensive side -- to give them confidence moving forward. Lions tight end T.J. Hockenson said they have "to take a win," and a matchup with the Bears is a good opportunity to avoid their first 0-4 start since 2015.”...

“The Bears are desperate for a victory, but the Lions are a scrappy bunch. Detroit kept it close against the Ravens and for a while against the Packers, whereas the Bears have been blown out in two of their three games. Chicago is under immense pressure to rebound after last week's debacle in Cleveland, where the Bears finished with just 47 net yards and 1 net passing yard. To say the Soldier Field crowd will be on edge is an understatement”...
