DETROIT – Another week, another “playoff” game for a Bears team that won “elimination” games the past two weekends.
Detroit's cruising to the NFC North title a year ago after their 6-3 start left Jim Schwartz thrown overboard after an all-too-familiar 1-6 finish.
The Bears will face the Lions with only a handful of the defensive starters who lost twice to Detroit last season (Chris Conte, Tim Jennings, Stephen Paea).
The playoffs are on the horizon. You can see them less than a month away. The race to the end of the regular season is well underway.
When there are only 13 regular-season weeks in Fantasy Football, it's hard not to read too much into one game.
