Detroit Lions: 5 keys to beating the Chicago Bears in week 16

The day has finally come. How fitting that the Detroit Lions (10-4) season has come down to the game against their biggest rival, the Chicago Bears (5-9). It could be argued, however, that the Bears have fallen from all NFL graces after their game against the Saints and might not prove to be as much of a challenge as we would have thought at the beginning of the season. Nonetheless...

Is the Detroit Lions Week 16 tilt one of the top-5 NFL games to watch?

Detroit Lions at Chicago Bears: 2014 Week 16 NFL Pick

Detroit Lions (10-4) at Chicago Bears (5-9) This line was 4.5 last week, but it’s since moved to 7 in favor of the Lions, a line movement of 2.5 points that crossed both significant numbers of 6 and 7. It’s easy to understand why the line moved after the Bears were embarrassed on national television by the Saints. However, I love fading a significant line movement whenever it...

ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell is the king of the analogy. Here's the one he used Monday during his weekly news conference to emphasize the importance of his team being focused on the next game against Chicago and not start looking ahead in any way toward a possible playoff bid: "It's like texting and driving," Caldwell said. "That's a real-world example...
