In case you missed it, the Chicago Bears beat the Vikings with a final score of 6 – 16. While the Packers defense is getting a lot of press, including on this site, the Chicago Bears defense continues to put up the numbers that actually matter. The Bears also showed how run defense is done by holding Vikings RB Dalvin Cook to a measly 35 yards with 14 carries. Vikings QB Kirk Cousins fumbled twice, one of which was recovered by Chicago. Minnesota’s offense didn’t bother showing up until the 4th quarter. Overall, it was an ugly game for the Vikings.
These need to be shown one more time:
Kansas City Chiefs narrowly beat the Lions 34-30
I gotta say, I am a bit surprised by this one. The Lions are determined to earn respect and this game showed it — despite the loss.
As is now tradition in the NFL, there was a missed defensive pass interference call in the 3rd quarter. You can even see the official in the background staring right at it. The Lions only had one challenge remaining at the time so they had to let it go. To paraphrase Matt LaFleur: If that’s not pass interference, then I don’t even know what it is anymore.
Even as a fan of UGA football, I never expected Matt Stafford to last this long in the league. He performed well against Kansas City, but ultimately, the Chiefs’ high-power offense was too much for Detroit to handle.
With Week 4 behind us, there are no more teams in the NFC North that remain undefeated. With the Packer’s win over the Bears in Week 1, this keeps Green Bay at the top of the NFC North — as god intended.
