RUSHING OFFENSE: D -- Anthony Thomas got just five carries in the first half for 16 yards. He got the ball more frequently after halftime, but his productivity never increased.
PASS DEFENSE: D -- Seven different Lions receivers had catches for more than 10 yards. QB Joey Harrington was sacked just once and was not intercepted.
RUSH DEFENSE: A -- After three weeks the Bears had the NFL's worst run defense, but Sunday they allowed just 17 rushing yards on 20 carries. WR Reggie Swinton had a nine-yard run, but the Lions' 19 other rushing attempts netted just 8 yards.
SPECIAL TEAMS: D -- Other than Jerry Azumah's kickoff returns, there was nothing positive. Even reliable PK Paul Edinger suffered a meltdown - for him -- getting a 48-yarder blocked and missing wide left from 41.
COACHING: D -- The passing game didn't take advantage of a soft cover-2 shell in its hurry for Chris Chandler to get rid of the ball before he was touched. Go-to receiver Marty Booker returned but had just four catches for 36 yards. There was no effort made to establish what had been a red-hot ground game in a lackluster first half.
