Jordan Howard / Tarik Cohen, Chicago Bears vs. Detroit Lions
Another week gone by and more running backs just keep having success against the Lions. Three straight weeks, the starting tailback has scored against the Lions. And while it’s debatable if Latavius Murray is a starter, both Murray and Dalvin Cook put up flex numbers. It’s a true, two-back system and I think it comes down to which running style is more successful against the Lions. Both backs will see reps if the Lions can make it a game, if not, then I can see Howard having a slight edge. It’s too good a matchup though, with the Lions still giving up a league-high average of 134.0 rushing yards per game.
