The Detroit Lions hold a six-game winning streak over the Chicago Bears. The last time the Bears beat the Lions, Joique Bell was a Lion, Calvin Johnson was known for football not dancing, and Mikel Leshoure was the Lions’ leading rusher.
This hasn’t exactly been the greatest start to the 2016 season for either team. The Bears are 0-3 for the second straight year, while the Lions are coming off of two disheartening losses.
The Lions probably can’t afford to drop two consecutive division games this early in the season. This will be the Bears’ first NFC North game, but a loss would drop them to 0-4, a record which has resulted in no postseason berths for every team since 1992.
With both teams desperate for another early win, the stakes are actually pretty high for these two teams. Here’s the info you need to know for Sunday.
