Fresh off the firing of Matt Patricia and Bob Quinn, the Detroit Lions look to rebound in Chicago. Teams generally perform better the week after a coach is fired, but when the entire organization decides to clean house, does the move have the same effect?

The Lions will also face a Chicago Bears team that has their own problems, with an offense that has been equally poor under both Nick Foles and Mitchell Trubisky. With Matt Nagy also on the hot seat, let's see who the experts are taking in this NFC North showdown.
