Chicago Bears 10
Detroit Lions 13
The Chicago Bears are hanging with the NFC North-leading Detroit Lions today, but both teams have hurt themselves with unnecessary penalties along the way. We’ve got a one-score game underway at Ford Field, with 15 minutes left in regulation.
We’re not watching a barn-burner by any means, but a victory over Detroit would be a moral one for the Bears, who also beat Detroit during Week 4 this season. Plus, it would make the divisional race tighter among teams not named the Chicago Bears. The Lions, Packers, and Vikings all have a shot at the North title at this point in the season.
Can Matt Barkley create a spark in the 4th quarter that leads the Bears to victory? Or will Matthew Stafford take control and hand Chicago the loss many were expected today? Stay tuned...
