Two NFC North rivals are squaring of on Sunday: the Detroit Lions and the Chicago Bears. Currently there is a three-way tied atop the division with three teams with 5-3 records. The Lions and Bears are two of those teams and the winner of this game will stay on top of the table, possibly alone.
The Lions, and quarterback Matthew Stafford know it will be tough to walk away from Solider Field with a win. Stafford is 0-4 in Chicago. Stafford has thrown three touchdowns and six interceptions while completing 60 percent of his passes in Chicago.
“It’s tough,” Stafford said, via ESPN. “They play pretty well at home like everybody in our division does. It’s a big challenge.”
The Lions are starting to get excited about the chances they win the division title, but head coach Jim Schwartz is remaining cautious.
“We are only halfway through the season and the tale of this season is not going to be written in the first half, it is going to be written in the second half and that is what we have to concentrate on,” Schwartz said.
