The Chicago Bears will try to get a win against the Detroit Lions on Sunday at Soldier Fields, and while the Lions may be winless, they’ve shown more life than the 1-2 Bears so far on the young season. The Detroit offense has been middle of the pack so far this year, but teams have been able to move the ball against them. On paper the hapless Bears’ O should be able to do a few things against Detroit’s defense (regardless of who’ll be QB1), and Chicago’s D should be able to give the Lions’ offense fits.

But games aren’t played on paper, they're played on the gridiron, and this one is lining up to be a close game.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Bears vs Lions week 4 matchup.
