With the Lions and Bears tied for the best record in the NFL, ESPN will broadcast the game live on its digital platforms starting at 7 p.m.


Detroit’s defense will get the most time, and there’s a lot of potential for big plays.

Lions running back Reggie Bush is the only running back to reach double digits in rushing yards and touchdown catches in each of his first four seasons.

If the defense can shut down Chicago’s offense, the Lions might be able to get back on track and put a scare into the Bears’ playoff hopes.

Detroit and Chicago have split their two meetings, with Detroit leading the series 10-8-1.

The Bears and Lions are tied for first place in the NFC North with six games remaining.
