However you can get them--Bears Win! Bears at Lions Quick Recap

The "every game is a playoff" mentality continues.

Sloppy football by both sides, but the Bears lasted it out to maintain their one-game lead against the Packers.

Quick stats after the jump.

Some thoughts:  

Try tackling early. It works.

One TD and a first down doesn't make up for letting your quarterback get murdered, Manu. Keep that in mind.

Special Teams: Please come to all the games from now on. I think Dave Toub might murder someone.

Jay Cutler has thrown 1 interception in the last 72 attempts.

The Bears are still one game ahead of the Packers--let's keep it that way.

The Lions should provide for some good matchups in the next few years. Looking forward to some fun times.

The hit by Suh on Cutler was debatable. However, not reviewable. So it happened.
