The (3-12) Chicago Bears are in the Motor City today for an NFC North showdown against the (7-8) Detroit Lions. Detroit is still clinging on to hope for a playoff spot, while the Bears are looking to play spoiler. Earlier this season, the Lions outlasted the Bears 31 to 30, but these two teams are in much different places. Detroit has bounced back after a (1-6) start, while the Bears, who were already talent deficient, have lost even more players to injury.
Even so, Justin Fields should be able to keep the Bears relatively close and, if lucky, rip off a few highlight plays.
Here’s everything you need to know about this week 17 matchup.
Today, the Bears and Lions kickoff at Noon (CT) from the domed Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan.
