Billick: Opportunities To Run For Bears Against Lions
Sports Fan Insider
(WSCR) Coming off one of their biggest wins of the season against the Eagles, the Bears will look to keep their hot streak rolling against the Lions this weekend.
FOX analyst Brian Billick, who will call the game Sunday, said the Bears win over the Eagles was a good test coming into this week’s matchup.
“Obviously, it was a big win for the Bears,” Billick said. “As we talked before, Philadelphia has installed this defense that, for lack of a better term, this Wide-9 defense that we see run by the Detroit Lions. It’s a great way to see what the plan was for the Chicago Bears. As they did last year, you gotta be impressed with the way they ran the ball.
“I think we’ll see much of the same way. They’re going to challenge the run defense of the Detroit Lions that has given up some runs. They’ve given up 100 yards virtually in every game. (The Bears) are going to test that.”
