A few years ago, or even a few weeks ago, you probably wouldn’t care much about a Monday Night Football match up between the Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears. Things are different in recent times as the Lions have established themselves as a contender with significant upgrades on both sides of the ball through improved drafting. See for yourself and watch the Monday Night Football game via free online streaming tonight.
Detroit was off to a rocky 1-3 start but appeared to have an awakening in the middle of the fourth quarter of their week 6 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Lions scored 10 unanswered 4th quarter points to tie the game, then not only held the Eagles to limited yardage, but pushed them back for a total -21 yards in overtime before winning on a 45-yard Jason Hanson Field Goal.
On the other side tonight, the Chicago Bears have a contender for some time now. This year appears to be no different as they head into this week 7 contest with a 4-1 record with their only loss coming at the hand of the Green Bay Packers. The Bears have the Vikings and Packers right on their heels within the division and if the Lions manage to win this game, no team in the NFC North will have a losing record. And to put that statistic into perspective, there are only three teams in the ENTIRE AFC with winning records right now.
