The Chicago Bears are looking to snap their four game losing streak on Sunday as they take on the Matthew Stafford-less Detroit Lions at Soldier Field. 

1:24 p.m. 

The Bears hold their first lead of the day after a stellar 10 play, 80 yard touchdown drive. Mitchell Trubisky finds Ben Braunecker in the end zone for a touchdown with 25 seconds remaining in the first half, and Eddy Piñeiro drills through the extra point to make it a 7-6 Chicago lead. 

1:15 p.m. 

The Bears still trail 6-0 after Matt Prater bombs in a long field goal. The Bears’ offense is continuing to struggle with the two minute warning looming. 

12:52 p.m. 

The Bears say that Danny Trevathan is officially questionable to return with an elbow injury. 

12:48 p.m. 

A week after getting one first down in the first half of their game against the Eagles, the Bears have one first down through three drives in their game against the Lions. The Bears also have 28 total yards of offense so far. 

12:34 p.m. 

The Bears are down 3-0 after the first quarter. Chicago has 19 total yards of offense on eight total plays in the game so far. 

12:26 p.m. 

The Bears and Lions trade unsuccessful drives, but the bigger news for Chicago is the health of Danny Trevathan, as the linebacker ran off the field after tackling Jeff Driskel. 

Trevathan removed himself from the game and is being looked at by Bears trainers. 

12:13 p.m. 

The Lions get the ball first and march down the field on a 13-play, 72 yard drive. After a Jeff Driskel pass falls incomplete, the Lions are forced to settle for a Matt Prater field goal, giving them a 3-0 lead six minutes into the game. 

Driskel hit 5-of-6 passes for 56 yards on the opening drive. 

11:30 a.m. 

The Chicago Bears will be mostly healthy when they take on the Detroit Lions on Sunday at Soldier Field, but their opponent can’t say the same as quarterback Matthew Stafford will miss the game due to a back injury.

Stafford, who had started 136 consecutive games for the Lions, is dealing with broken bones in his back and a hip injury, and doctors would not clear him to play against the Bears on Sunday.

Jeff Driskel will take Stafford’s place in the Lions’ lineup. Driskel, drafted by the 49ers in the 206 NFL Draft, has appeared in nine career games, throwing six touchdown passes and two interceptions. He started five games for the Cincinnati Bengals during the 2018 season before signing with the Lions.

The Lions will also be without safeties Miles Killebrew and Tracy Walker, cornerback Michael Jackson, defensive linemen Da’Shawn Hand and Romeo Okwara, and offensive lineman Beau Benzschawel.

The Bears officially ruled out linebacker Isaiah Irving as he continues to deal with a quad issue, but their inactives list mostly looks the same from previous weeks. Tight end Adam Shaheen is a new addition, as he won’t be on the field Sunday, but Alex Bars, Abdullah Anderson, Riley Ridley, Josh Woods, and Duke Shelley will also be out for the team in the divisional contest.

The Bears are currently 1-1 against the NFC North this season, winning their game against the Minnesota Vikings and falling to the Green Bay Packers in the first week of the regular season.
