NFL Thanksgiving Football is here and you can watch it live on Sky Sports.

We keep a close eye on all three fights, from each team’s kits to some of the players worth watching …

The Bears come out 3-7 amid a five-game losing streak amid a 16-13 loss to the Baltimore Ravens without Lamar Jackson in week 11, during which freshman Justin Fields was forced out of the field with a rib injury. … Their three wins of the year came against the Cincinnati Bengals (20-17 in week two), the Lions (24-14 in week four) and the Las Vegas Raiders (20-9 in week five), in second place to bottom. in total attacks and 11th in defense, and the clock, as it has been for some time, seems to be ticking off from head coach Matt Nagy.

Dan Campbell’s Lions have no wins this season 0-9-1, losing 13-10 to the Cleveland Browns Sunday after drawing 16-16 with the Pittsburgh Steelers last week. Detroit is ranked 27th in both attack and defense, with the second-worst -0.108 EPA / game (expected points added) in the league. They play hard and are unlucky enough to end up second in two-point games against Baltimore Ravens and Minnesota Vikings, but overall it was terrible.

Darnell Mooney gave an idea of ​​what an expanded role might look like for him pushing ahead on Sunday as he was attacked 16 times in the absence of Chicago star receiver Allen Robinson, finishing with five 121 yard traps and one touchdown. David Montgomery, recently returned from injury and the newbie Khalil Herbert You can also make a useful tandem for the early run, which amassed 794 yards in a year.

Second year ago D’Andre Swift has been one of the few bright spots for the Lions and comes in Thursday with 266 total racing yards in his last two outings, including a 57-yard touchdown against the Browns last time. Georgia product has 555 yards for two landings, as well as 53 hauls for 420 yards and two results this season. The best is yet to come from the 2019 first round tight end T. J. Hawkenson, while the newbie attacks Penay Sewell it is worth keeping an eye on Robert Quinn.

Andy Dalton will start with an injured Fields, and Jared Goff could return after missing Sunday’s defeat to the Browns, in which backup Tim Boyle intercepted twice, marking his first career start. Which defender can play cleaner football? What is the most destructive defense on the battlefield? The Bears Defense, which has conceded 709 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground in the past five games, will also be tasked with rediscovering some resistance to contain a surging Swift.

Lions head coach Dan Campbell: “Winning, period, would be awesome as hell, but getting it on Thanksgiving would make it so much more special.”

Lions Defender Jared Goff: “I feel good (after recovering from injury), better every day, let’s see, I don’t know what he (Campbell’s coach) said, but I will probably take it as a game day decision. I feel good, although I feel really good. I would describe this (oblique injury) like any other stretched muscle, it gets better over time and it can fail if you push it too far or too fast, so this is the delicate dance we control. “
