Lions blow it again, fall apart in Thanksgiving loss against Bears

You didn’t fall for it, did you?

You didn’t think the Detroit Lions could hold a lead, did you?

You didn’t begin to have hope after the Lions built a 17-10 halftime lead over the Chicago Bears on Thanksgiving Day?

You didn’t think the Lions could stop the same bad quarterback they faced three weeks ago, did you?

Even when David Blough, the Lions’ rookie quarterback, was playing so inspired?

The Lions, if nothing else, are consistent. They will rip your heart out and crush your hope and blow a lead every time they get a chance, which is what they did Thursday, losing to the Bears, 24-20.

The Lions (3-8-1) have lost eight of their past nine, including five in a row, despite being one of three teams in the NFL to hold a lead in every game this season. (The other two are Super Bowl contenders San Francisco and Kansas City.)
