In Week 15, the Detroit Lions' future opponents combined to go 0-2. Here's a look at how each team performed:

Week 16 - at Bears (5-9) - lost to Saints, 31-15

The Bears fell behind 24-0 in this one before making the score look a bit more respectable with a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns. How did they manage to fall into such a big hole? Look no further than Jay Cutler, who threw three interceptions and completed only 17 of his 31 passes. The offensive line also deserves some blame, as Cutler was sacked seven times on Monday night.

Week 17 - at Packers (10-4) - lost to Bills, 21-13

Jim Schwartz's defense absolutely dominated Aaron Rodgers. He finished 17 of 42 with 185 yards and two interceptions, and he fumbled the ball into the end zone for a safety at the very end of the game. That fumble and safety basically ended any hope of a Packers comeback and clinched Green Bay's first loss since October.
