Bears cornerback Charles Tillman was named NFC defensive player of the week for his performance against Calvin Johnson in the Bears 13-7 win over the Detroit Lions last Monday.
There is something to be said about what your peers say about you. When it comes to Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, its pretty clear how highly his toughness is regarded.
The Bears and Detroit Lions dont like each other very much. No surprise there; nobody much likes the Lions and their sometimes miscreant ways.
With Green Bay and Minnesota winning, the Bears cannot give any ground vs. the Detroit Lions in the division, one of only two with three of four winning records (NFC South).
