The Chicago Bears have been competitive despite their losses, but their well below average defense against this Lions offense is a terrible matchup. The Detroit Lions are back in their dome here they're comfy and cozy, and they're fourth in total offense and fifth in scoring offense. A Bears defense that's 24th in total defense, 30th in rush defense and 31st in scoring defense will be given fits. I'll take the Lions by a touchdown or two.
