Tonight for the final game of week 7, we see a potential game of the week in an NFC North rivalry match-up as the Detroit Lions travel to play the Chicago Bears. Detroit’s been having an extremely lackluster year thus far losing 3 straight before upsetting the Philadelphia Eagles in OT on a last second FG.
Tonight the Lions have a chance to jump back to .500 with upcoming favorable games against the Jaguars and Seahawks; but it’s not going to be easy playing against the best defensive team in the league AT (yes capitalized) Solider Field.
The Bears have gone under the radar since their week 2 embarrassing loss against the Packers where Jay Cutler was beat to a pulp against the Packers defense in a 23-10 loss but have since won 3 in a row against the Rams, Cowboys and Jaguars. The Bears have favorable upcoming games against Carolina and Tennessee before their week 10 Sunday night showdown against the Houston Texans for inter-conference play.
The top stories of the game will be Brandon Marshall battling Chris Houston and Calvin Johnson duking it out with Charles Tillman. Matthew Stafford should have his hands full tonight with the Bears pass rush which is currently the best in the league as I expect the Bears to win this one at home by convincing fashion.
