Aaron Rodgers took every hit the Detroit Lions could dish out. He just kept throwing — and winning.
It’s been brewing since the Monday night game last month. In fact, the kindling for this fire was sparked with Calvin Johnson’s non-catch in the opener last year. The Bears and Lions don’t like each other and Sunday it boiled over.
Heading into Sunday’s game against Detroit, the Bears will face arguably one of the most powerful defensive lines in the league looking to break up their newly-found continuity on offensive in Cliff Avril, Ndamukong Suh, Corey Williams and Kyle Vanden Bosch.
With the Packers moving to 5-0, it’s imperative that the Bears get a win tonight in Detroit. A loss would leave two undefeated teams at the top of the division. Plus, both of those teams at this point would have tie-breakers against the Bears. Even if you think that winning the division is a fantasy, there’s still the issue of the wildcard. If the Bears want to be in that conversation, a win is essential. Here’s what I’m watching in this pivotal matchup:
Leading the charge for the physical battle will be Lions defensive tackle, Ndamukong Suh, who is notorious for his dirty play. Chicago Bears radio analyst Tom Thayer said the Bears should go shot for shot with Suh.
t will be a showdown in Motown on Monday night, when the Chicago Bears take on the undefeated Detroit Lions in the “2nd place in the NFC North” bowl.
He’s the best defensive tackle in the NFL in just his second season in the league. He’s as intimidating of force as you’ll find.
It never felt right that a shaky offensive line seemed so desperate to retain a mediocre center.
During the fourth quarter as the Bears faced the Lions, Detroit’s Ndamukong Suh sent Jay Cutler to the ground with what appeared to be a hard shove.
The Bears are finally giving Jay Cutler some protection after changing up the rotation several times due to player performance and injuries. They finally have the right mix.
Obviously the Bears are better than most thought they would be entering the 2010 season but are they good enough to win the Super Bowl?
