This game pits two NFC North rivals against one another. The Chicago Bears are off to a great start under new head coach Marc Trestman and come into the game undefeated and in first place in the division. The Detroit Lions aren’t off to as great of a start, but they have to be pleased with there they sit, second place with a 2-1 record.
If the Lions win they’ll grab a share of the division lead, but home field advantage isn’t something they can count on in this game.
“The urgency is there for everybody to improve and to get the next win,” Lions coach Jim Schwartz said. “I’m certainly not downplaying the importance of any game, but we treat them all with respect and we want to win every single one.
“NFC North games mean an awful lot because No. 1, it’s a chance for you to win the game, but No. 2, it’s a chance to put a loss on one of your opponents without having somebody else have to help you do it. They’re certainly important. I’m not up here to tell you it’s not.”
