For the Lions, a victory is going to be hard to come by, and would be considered an upset. If Detroit does come out on top, then it would be huge. The Lions really need something like this to get momentum as the season goes on. And a win over a rival from the NFC North doesn't hurt.
The Bears were considered the favorites to win the NFC North in most of the preseason picks, but Detroit will look to show that it isn't 100% to happen. It'll be a good one to watch today, and in the end, hopefully we'll be celebrating a Lions victory.
