Week 15 Pre-Gamin’: Bears at Lions – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Bears

Saturday’s alright for football in my book.

For the second straight week, the Chicago Bears – who don’t have much to play for other than pride and the future – will square off against a team hanging on to its playoff livelihood. This week, it’s the Detroit Lions who are at home and hoping to walk over a sub-.500 team en route to a win that puts them a step closer to the postseason.

Of course, the Bears would love nothing more than to thwart their playoff dreams.
