Bears vs Lions: Live updates and open thread

Happy New Year, everyone! Hang out with us for the Chicago Bears vs Detroit Lions game right here!

I just hope this Chicago Bears (3-12) and Detroit Lions (7-8) matchup is a fun one because this has been a long season so far. Vegas believes there should be a boatload of points scored in the controlled environment of Ford Field, so that could keep things interesting.

There are two types of fans rooting for the Bears this week; those rooting for Chicago to play spoiler and those rooting for a tank loss. I’m sure we’ll get both in the comment section, so while our open threads are all rated WCG-MA, keep in mind we’re all Bears fane and treat each other with some respect. But if a Lion fan wanders in, feel free to rip him a new one!

Update: I’ve seen enough... CAN WE JUST SIM THE REST OF THE SEASON?!?

Update: Teven Jenkins is doubtful to return with a neck injury.

You can check out ESPN’s Gamecast for live statistical updates.

Everyone enjoy the game, and have a safe and happy holiday weekend!
