American Football: NFL: Lions lose to Bears – Exciting playoff race

Four weeks before the end of the main round, the NFL is still completely open in many divisions. The Detroit Lions, on the other hand, have been almost certain of first place so far, but are putting themselves in trouble.

The Detroit Lions around Amon-Ra St. Brown suffered a defeat in the NFL for the second time in three games and may still have to worry about participation in the playoffs after losing 13:28 against the Chicago Bears.

With four defeats, first place in the NFC North and secure qualification are in danger with four games remaining – especially since there are two more games against division rivals Minnesota Vikings.

St. Brown had a poor game by its standards, catching only 3 of the 11 passes its way for a total of 21 yards. He hasn’t gained so much space all season. A brother duel with Equanimeous St. Brown did not take place because the Chicago Bears pass receiver was unable to play with a torn muscle fiber in his chest. The Lions hurt themselves with three turnovers. Quarterback Jared Goff had two interceptions, plus a fumble after a failed snap. For the Bears around playmaker Justin Fields, it was the fifth win and the third from the last four games.

Bengals keep playoff chances alive

In the highly competitive AFC North, the Baltimore Ravens defended their lead at the top by beating the Los Angeles Rams 37:31 after overtime. With 10 wins in 14 games, the team around quarterback Lamar Jackson is still two wins ahead of the Cleveland Browns, who won their home game against the Jacksonville Jaguars 31:27. The Cincinnati Bengals kept their playoff chances alive with a 34:14 win against the Indianapolis Colts and at the same time ensured that the Jaguars defended their lead over the Colts despite their own defeat.

In the NFC South, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won 29:25 against the Atlanta Falcons and now have six wins and seven defeats. Because the New Orleans Saints won their duel with the Carolina Panthers 28:6, the Bucs, the Falcons and the Saints have the same record four weeks before the end of the main round.
