The Chicago Bears will face the winless Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving, where Chicago is desperate to avoid their sixth straight loss in what is a must-win game for Matt Nagy.

The Bears have lost five straight games for the second consecutive season, where Nagy’s immediate future has been brought into question amid the dysfunction at Halas Hall on Tuesday, which involved an unconfirmed report that Nagy would be fired after Thanksgiving.

In a game where Chicago is facing a winless Detroit team, the Bears are still somehow the bigger disaster right now.

While there’s no confidence with Chicago, 68% of experts are still picking the Bears to beat the Lions on Thanksgiving, according to NFL Pick Watch. Which isn’t really a surprise given the Ravens are one of the top teams in the AFC while the Bears are struggling.

Chicago is currently 2.5-point road favorites, according to Tipico Sportsbook, where a win against Detroit is expected but not guaranteed.

Can the Bears avoid a six-game skid with a win over the Lions? Or will a winless Detroit team send Chicago spiraling with an upset loss?

We’ll see Thursday when the Bears and Lions kick things off at 11:30 a.m. CST on FOX.
