Following a huge Sunday night win against the Minnesota Vikings, the Bears were tasked with reloading for a big Thanksgiving day game in Detroit.
Yet Pace brought him to Chicago, and on Thursday that decision paid off. Daniel limited the mistakes, made a healthy amount of plays, and threw the ball 37 times despite not starting a game since before the general manager was even signed with the Bears.

Maybe it was the short week and getting their backup QB ready for Thursday's game plan, but if the Bears are going to compete in January we should all hope we don't see it again.
The victory gave the Bears their fourth straight win and moved them to 8-3, giving them a firm grasp on the NFC North. In nearly four years since, he has thrown only three passes in the regular season.
The Bears have intercepted 20 passes - and allowed 19 passing touchdowns.

Now it's what are they going to have to do to win playoff games? Given how Daniel performed, there isn't any rush for Trubisky to get back on the field as the team can rely on the play of their defense another week if necessary on the road against the New York Giants.
With points and more from your defense, you can squeak one out against the Lions that way, but if that's how you want to take on the Rams or the Saints at best it's a really bad idea. "Put it in where I thought was going to be a good spot, and just wasn't".
"Got to see (Jackson) a little better than I did", Stafford said.
Daniel got off to an expected slow start but he warmed up in the second quarter, one he capped off with a touchdown pass to RB Taquaon Mizzell.

I hope so, because that would be epic if Red Bull could start to mingle with us a little more weekend in, weekend out. Hulkenberg's auto landed upside down against the barriers after attempting to make a move on Romain Grosjean.
