Chicago Bears vs Detroit Lions: 1st Quarter Open Thread

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

The battle for first place in the NFC North starts at noon in Chicago. Join us for live discussion and instant analysis.

We've been talking about it all week, and now it's here.

The Lions come to Soldier Field (where Matthew Stafford has never won a game) to take on the Bears. The winner of this game will be in sole possession of the NFC North.

Jay Cutler returns ahead of the original prognosis for his groin injury, but some may prefer McCown play.

Both teams are starting two rookies on the offensive line. Both teams score a lot of points this year.
