Bears look to tame Lions in key NFC North matchup

Why to watch
The Lionstook the first end of this home-and-home, and the Bears' Cover-2 had no answer for Megatron back on that Monday night (six targets, five catches, 130 yards and a 73-yard TD). Chicago will need more than one sack in this one to slow down the Lions. And Detroit's woeful rush defense should get a heavy dose of Matt Forte.

Inside story
The Lions are come in off a bye, while the Bears play on a short week having done the Monday Night Football thing in Philly coming off their bye and a trip to London. Football players are creatures of habit, remember. Matthew Stafford's ankle got extra time to heal up. The Lions want to be a more physical running team, but this will be a tough task. Oh, and former Bears team leader Chris Harris plays his first game as a Lion, against his old team.
