Long before Matthew Stafford's two interceptions in the fourth quarter Authentic Jordan Howard Jersey , the Detroit Lions looked limited offensively.Playing without running back Kerryon Johnson and wide receiver Marvin Jones, the Lions kept it close against Chicago on Thursday but ultimately fell 23-16 . Stafford's late interceptions turned the game in the Bears' favor, but even when Detroit was keeping better care of the ball, the Lions weren't exactly picking up huge chunks of yardage. Detroit has some extra time to rest now, and perhaps the Lions will be healthier for their next game 鈥?but that Dec. 2 matchup is against a formidable opponent in the Los Angeles Rams."There's not a lot of time to sit around and feel sorry for ourselves," Detroit coach Matt Patricia said. "We have one of the best teams in the NFL coming in here next week."The Lions (4-7) already have as many losses as they had all of last season, when they went 9-7 before firing coach Jim Caldwell and replacing him with Patricia. It has been a struggle in 2018: The team started 0-2, battled back to 3-3, then lost three straight. Detroit was 3-4 when it traded receiver Golden Tate to the Eagles. Now Jones has been dealing with a knee injury, further hampering the passing game.Receiver Kenny Golladay looks like he could be developing into a star, but against the Bears he seemed like Detroit's only big-play threat.Stafford finished 28 of 38 for 236 yards in the Thanksgiving loss to Chicago. It was the third time in four games he averaged under 10 yards per completion. He indicated afterward that the Lions prioritized quick passes to deal with Chicago's pass rush."I think it's just influenced by what you see on tape when you see them play. Teams that hold the ball against those guys don't get the ball off quite a bit," Stafford said. "I don't make those two turnovers, I don't make those poor plays, we're right where we want to be."With the score tied at 16 , Stafford threw an interception that was run back for a touchdown. Then he had a pass picked off in the end zone with just over a minute to play.Both Jones and Johnson were out with knee injuries. Johnson, a rookie, has given Detroit's running game a boost, but even with him out, the Lions were able to move the ball decently on the ground. LeGarrette Blount ran for a season-high 88 yards with two touchdowns."He's a great player. He's tough, he's competitive, he works hard and tries to do everything the right way," Patricia said. "He has a great knack for continually going after it and eventually, at some point, he (was) able to break a couple, which was good. But look, it doesn't really matter. We have to go win. We have to figure it out. We have to all perform better, and coach it better, and just go do a better job than what we did."NOTES: The Lions announced Friday that they have been assigned CB Marcus Cooper via waivers from the Bears. Detroit waived S Don Carey. ... Although injuries made the going tougher on offense Womens Eric Kush Jersey , the Lions had reason to be encouraged by DE Ziggy Ansah's performance. Ansah has dealt with injury problems of his own this year, but he was a factor Thursday with a sack and two hurries. Derek Carr has seen two coaches get fired, fellow stars get traded and the roster get overhauled numerous times in five seasons as Oakland Raiders quarterback.The latest change for Carr came this week when the Raiders fired general manager Reggie McKenzie, the man who drafted him in 2014 and negotiated the $125 million contract that made Carr the face of the franchise."There has been a lot of turnover," Carr said Wednesday. "Not only in the last five years, but in the last 12 months. There has been a lot of turnover. A lot of different things; systems, players, obviously the GM, coaches. It just teaches you that you can't control anything outside of what you can control. The best thing that you can do is show up every day and give it everything that you have because anything outside of that is out of your control."In a span of less than a year, Carr has watched the departures of coach Jack Del Rio, coordinator Todd Downing, 2014 draft mate Khalil Mack and No. 1 receiver Amari Cooper.Amid that turnover and more losing than he'd care to endure, Carr somehow is playing some of the best football of his career in recent weeks, topping a 120 rating in consecutive games for just the second time in his career."I feel more confident in our system ," Carr said. "I feel like my reads are quicker. I feel like I can get through things and eliminate things faster. That feels better. So, that is a different feeling. But, I didn't feel like when you play basketball you can shoot it however you want and they're going in no matter what. I didn't have a feeling like that."Carr has taken time to find his groove in coach Jon Gruden's offense. He began the year overly aggressive, throwing eight interceptions in the first five games, including two on first-down plays in the red zone.He then got overly cautious, failing to complete a single pass that traveled more than 10 yards downfield twice in a span of three games.But he finally has struck the proper balance in recent weeks. He has gone a franchise-record eight straight games without an interception and has regained his deep touch. Carr has completed nine passes that traveled at least 15 yards downfield the past two games 鈥?against Kansas City and Pittsburgh, equaling his total from his previous six games combined.His passer rating is 16 points higher in seven games without Cooper than it was in six games before his top receiver was traded to Dallas."He can make all the throws," Gruden said. "I mean, he can make passes that very few guys on the planet can make, and he can make them confidently. He doesn't even think about it. When he's off six inches, he's mad. He can really throw the ball, he's feeling it right now."Carr credits much of the improvement to a new attitude after a sit-down with Gruden in which he was told not to worry about his statistics and just to trust his instincts to do what's right.Much was made leading up to the start of the season about the relationship between the two. Gruden is notoriously hard on his quarterbacks and has almost never had a quarterback as young and talented as Carr.Carr had had predominantly defensive-minded head coaches in his career and had to adjust to the more hands-on approach from Gruden. Carr said he has a tendency to try to please and knows he must trust his own gut more often. That's why Gruden's words of encouragement were so helpful."It was around the early, middle of the season where he just kind of sat me down and said, 'Let's not take your right arm out of things. Let's just take it back to the simple things ,'" Carr said. "We didn't cut anything out. I just think that the way he was starting to word things was different. Instead of every little detail, because if you give me 100 details I'm going to try to do 100 all correct, now he's said, 'Well let me give you 50 details and let's just let your talent take over the rest.' We've been doing that and correcting as we go and adding here and there. It just helped me play freer for our team and for him. It's been nice."NOTES: LG Kelechi Osemele (toe), RG Gabe Jackson (elbow, ankle) and LB Kyle Wilber (hamstring) all missed practice. ... C Rodney Hudson (ankle/knee), WR Dwayne Harris (foot), DT Maurice Hurst (ankle), FB Keith Smith (calf) and CB Daryl Worley (shoulder) were limited.
