Andy Dalton will kick off as Chicago Bears quarterback against Detroit Lions’ losing streak on Thanksgiving Day, and Justin Fields is out with a rib injury – The Bears hope to end the five-game losing streak that put pressure on Matt Nagy

Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy denied reports that he was told he would be fired this weekend following a Thanksgiving clash with Detroit.

The Bears have lost their last five games after a fairly positive start to the season and are heading to Detroit amid disastrous defeats to Pittsburgh and Baltimore.

They’re set to make it without their pick in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft, when quarterback Justin Fields suffered a rib injury in last year’s 16-13 defeat to the Ravens.

Nagy confirmed Tuesday that veteran Andy Dalton will start at Ford Field as the Bears try to provoke the fourth-highest points attack (163) in the league this season.

Sentiment towards Nagy has grown even more negative over the past few weeks when the “Fire Nagy” scandals erupted at the big high school playoffs in Cary Grove and in the city’s United Center during the NBA clash between the Bulls and the Indiana Pacers. Monday.

But on Tuesday morning, there was a report of Nagy’s imminent dismissal, which prompted a reaction from the head coach as he simply said, “This is not entirely true.”

“I’m focused on these players and Detroit, that’s all. It is my job as a head coach and leader to do this. These players were amazing.

“They were great. You have such a quick result after such a loss as [Sunday’s to the Ravens]and now that’s all. The only thing we can do is focus on the present moment and do our best. Thursday is coming soon. “

Added to this were earlier comments from a local podcast featuring Jordan Schultz, who previously partnered with Bears receiver Allen Robinson, detailing how most players opposed their coach.
