The Bears are coming off a bye week, and the Lions are feeling good after a comeback win over the Eagles in Philadelphia. That Eagles game was more important than people realize. The Eagles just fired their Defensive Coordinator, Juan Castillo. The Lions know they were the tipping point for that action to take place. This will boost the confidence of the Lions defensive unit as well as the team as a whole. The Lions tend to fall behind early and comeback late, but the Bears don’t have a quick-strike offense, so the Lions should be able to stay even for the majority of the game before going on their weekly 4th quarter explosion. Take the points an a close Monday night clash.
Oddsmakers has Chicago as 6½-point favorite, with the total at 47½.
