Here are some pregame links to get you ready for Monday
For the second week in a row, the Chicago Bears find themselves playing under the lights in prime time, and this time around it's against a divisional foe. The Detroit Lions travel to Soldier Field for a Monday night game that has them six point underdogs, but the way the Bears defense has been playing, this could end up being a double-digit ballgame.
Our friend Evan Silva over at Rotoworld has a Fantasy breakdown from tonight's match-up, and it is top-notch work as always. He's got the Bears coming out on top 24-17.
NFL.com has a video on tonight's game, with an intro of a certain feisty Bears defensive back taking on a certain Detroit Lions quarterback.
Weather forecast: Game time temperature expected to be around 65 degrees, with a 65% chance of thunderstorms around 8pm CT. Those thunderstorms should pass over pretty quickly though.
