Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell and quarterback Matthew Stafford address the media after a Week 16 loss against the Cincinnati Bengals.
"It's kind of Catch-22 when you get in that situation," Fox said. From an experience standpoint, I can see what Dowell's basically relating that to. Fox has argued that Trubisky has played his best game in each of the last three weeks, following games against San Francisco, Cincinnati and Detroit.
