Lions and Bears Face Off for First Place this Afternoon, Red Wings Lose, Blackhawks Win

Detroit Lions
Detroit Lions

UNDATED (WHTC) -- At least a portion of first place in the NFC North will on the line Sunday in the Second City when the Detroit Lions visit the Chicago Bears.   Each team is 5-3 and in a three-way tie with Green Bay for the top spot in the division entering Week 10.  Detroit had the extra week to prepare this time and is built around its high- powered offense featuring strong-armed quarterback Matthew Stafford, shifty running back Reggie Bush and dynamic receiver Calvin Johnson. Stafford passed for 488 yards in a Week 8 31-30 last-second win over Dallas and has reached 15,000 career passing yards (15,424) in his 53rd game, fastest in NFL history.  Game coverage on 1450 WHTC begins at noon.
