We’re just one day away from Chicago Bears vs Detroit Lions part deux.

The Bears lost to the Lions in their earlier match-up on November 19th, by a score of 27 to 24. Detroit (7-6) is still playing for a playoff spot, while the Bears are looking to play spoiler. The Lions are currently in the 8th spot in the NFC and trying to catch the 6th seeded Atlanta Falcons (8-5). A win by the Bears wouldn’t eliminate Detroit, but it would be a severe blow to their postseason aspirations.

Here’s some of our recent Bears vs Lions stuff to get you ready for the game.

History Lesson

In their last 20 meetings, the Bears and Lions have split 10-10. The hashtag #WeOwnTheBears is an actual thing that Lions’ fans do.

I get it, lately the Lions do have the edge, as they are 9-1 in their last ten games. So getting a bit puffy chested is understandable after a lifetime of beat-downs.
