New Lions QB Chase Daniel remembers: 'I really like playing at Ford Field'
Chase Daniel is a big-game winner.
At least, at Ford Field, he is.
The journeyman backup quarterback's next stop is Detroit, after he agreed to a reported three-year, $13.05 million contract with the Detroit Lions on Tuesday.
Daniel, 33, went 1-2 as a starter with the Chicago Bears the past two seasons, beating the Lions on Thanksgiving Day in 2018 for his only victory. He threw for 230 yards and two touchdowns, completing 73% of his passes in that game.

And he remembers. Here's his tweet:
"Words can’t describe how incredibly grateful my family is for our time in Chicago. We loved the city with all our hearts but it’s time for a new adventure in Detroit!!! We can’t wait to get to work!! #OnePride P.S. I really like playing at Ford Field!!!"
Here are his highlights from the 2018 Thanksgiving game, when Matthew Stafford threw the go-ahead pick-six and then the game-ending, end-zone interception. Daniel, filling in for an injured Mitchell Trubisky, was 27-for-37 for 230 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions as Chicago won, 23-16, en route to the NFC North division title.
