All losses in the NFL are frustrating, but they're also not all built the same. The Chicago Bears blew a 12-point lead in four minutes of game clock, eventually losing 31-26 to the rival Detroit Lions, falling to a 3-8 record on the season. While there’s no great excuse to give up 17 points in such a short manner, the Bears do have goals that are a bit bigger than this season, and they collected a major datapoint on the short- and long-term future with the return of Justin Fields from a thumb injury on Sunday.
