This week adds the new twist of the benching of Jay Cutler, as Jimmy Clausen gets his first start since his rookie year. Regardless of whether it's because a trade is in place, the Bears trust Clausen a little more than Cutler now, or they're trying to protect their multi-million dollar investment, it looks to be the Jimmy Clausen show going forward. As the Lions push towards a division crown, the Bears may well be officially rebuilding.
But there's still a game coming up on Sunday. So how can you follow the action?
Game Time: 1:00 PM ET / 12:00 PM CT
Location: Soldier Field, Chicago, IL (The final home game of the year.)
TV: Somehow, the 5-9 Bears and 10-4 Lions get top-pair billing on FOX, as Joe Buck and Troy Aikman get the call. For all the other games, check the 506.
Radio: The game can also be heard on WBBM 780 AM. Jeff Joniak and Tom Thayer have the call there, and can also be heard streaming on the WBBM web site.
Online Streaming: Nope. We don't condone it. We won't allow it. There are legal methods if you don't have cable, some of which are found here.
Other Online Streaming: After we figured out that the Chicago Bears' Dumpster Fire affected our own stream last week, we've benched our software for a newer, shinier option (not cheaper though, because OBS is free - okay, we're still using OBS). Anyway, we'll be back up and running tomorrow.
Odds: Detroit's a 4.5-point favorite, at open anyway. That's since jumped to nine in some places. For more, here's the SBN odds page.
The Pick: Detroit 30, Bears 10. I don't have anything witty to add.
The Enemy: Go check out Pride of Detroit for all your Lions needs. They're on Twitter at @PrideofDetroit.
What about watching with you guys?: If you want to follow us for whatever insight we offer, there'll be the game threads to socialize with other Bears fans. On the Twitter, we can be found at @WindyCGridiron, @Kev_WCG, @SJS_illini, and @wiltfongjr.
Next Week: The Bears wrap up the season in Minnesota against the Vikings.
