Bears' Tarik Cohen Disrespects Lions Despite Loss: 'Y'all Suck Always'

Read more on the comments made by Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen about the Detroit Lions

Tarik Cohen did not suit up and play Sunday for the Chicago Bears against the Detroit Lions

Cohen suffered a torn right ACL back in September, following Chicago's 30-26 victory over the Atlanta Falcons.

Despite the season-ending injury, Cohen took to the popular streaming app Twitch during the Week 13 tilt to reveal what he felt about Detroit. 

“The Lions suck, bro, we’re not going to lose the game,” Cohen said during the second quarter. “If we lose today, bro, I don’t know what I’m going to do.”

Detroit's defense struggled to stop the Bears in the first half, but clamped down in the second half. 

With Detroit trailing by three late in the fourth quarter, defensive end Romeo Okwara knocked the ball loose from Chicago quarterback Mitchell Trubisky on third down, and the ball was subsequently recovered by rookie defensive tackle John Penisini.

Adrian Peterson was then able to scamper five yards for the go-ahead touchdown with 1:37 remaining.

Detroit's defense was able to secure the win when Bears running back David Montgomery was stopped by Kevin Strong on a fourth-and-1 play. 

The team Cohen disrespected earned the 34-30 road victory. 

"F**k it. We’ve all been wrong here. They still suck lol," Cohen tweeted postgame.

After a barrage of replies from jilted Lions fans, Cohen took to Twitter once more to address angry fans. 

He tweeted, "Lions fans, we split 1-1. Y’all suck (always), and we suck (just for rn), too. Shut up about it."

After the events that transpired on the field, Cohen may want to refrain from offering such "pearls of wisdom" online for the foreseeable future.
