And for the other fans who love defense and a little fun in the National Football League, they can be thankful for what happened at the end of Thursday's game against the Detroit Lions.
Long before Matthew Stafford's two interceptions in the fourth quarter, the Detroit Lions looked limited offensively.
Going downfield: A lot of times backup quarterbacks will take the field with conservative game plans but Chase Daniel's experience in the system and coach Matt Nagy's comfort with him created a situation in which the Bears were able to be aggressive throwing the ball.
Stafford was sacked twice, though one came on the aborted Hail Mary at the end of the first half. Kyle Fuller's pick in the end zone on the Lions' final drive sealed the Bears' fifth straight win.
"Jackson made a really good play on the first one".
"Everyone in this locker room knew what he was going to do, and he didn't let us down", Mizzell said.More news: Justin & Hailey Bieber Celebrate First Thanksgiving Together!

Cohen went down to his side just beyond the end zone, putting his hands under his head as if he was taking a nap like many Americans do on Thanksgiving.
The defense was pretty good again, but it wore down in the second half when it allowed 223 of the 333 yards it gave up on the day.
A week earlier, all four of Parkey's misses hit one of the uprights at Soldier Field, a unique twist in the Bears' 34-22 victory over the Lions. Not bad for a career backup.
No matter how that game shakes out, Chicago is still going to be in excellent shape.
"Got to see (Jackson) a little better than I did", Stafford said.
"We were ready for a bullfight and that's what we got", Daniel said. Just didn't get it to him quick enough. "Wednesday night was a totally different wind, so we had some good recall about where to play it and those type of things". Decker blocked Irving and nickel cornerback Bryce Callahan couldn't bring Blount down by the jersey as the running back got loose to the second level. "Offensively, I thought that what I felt in the game was what I ended up seeing on tape. Was going to try and give him a high ball to go up and jump and get".
