Lions vs. Bears NFL Week 10: TV Schedule, Betting Lines, Prediction
TV Schedule: Sunday, Nov. 10, 1 p.m. ET, FOX
Stadium: Soldier Field
Weather: High 46, Low 32
Line: Detroit (-2.5)
Coming off quite possibly their best win of the season against the Green Bay Packers on the road, the Chicago Bears have opened up the NFC North with a clutch road win. Chicago might be leaning toward starting Jay Cutler this week if he’s healthy, but Josh McCown has been solid in his two starts, passing for a combined 476 yards and three touchdowns while completing nearly 60 percent of his passes. The 34-year-old quarterback has looked solid in the two games without Cutler, leading the Bears to a 1-1 record. Cutler’s 1,658 yards and 12 touchdowns are missed especially by top wide out Brandon Marshall, however — he has caught 53 passes for 647 yards and six touchdowns. Matt Forte has been Mr. Reliable in both the run and pass game, rushing for 658 yards and seven scores while catching 40 passes for 316 yards.
The Detroit Lions are one of the NFL‘s surprising teams on the season. Winning five games already, the Lions have surpassed their win total from all of 2012. Matthew Stafford is on pace, once again, to pass for over 5,000 yards — it would be his third time in as many years. Stafford has 2,617 yards and 16 touchdowns this season for the second-ranked Lions’ passing offense. Calvin Johnson has been his normal self this season, catching 47 passes for 821 yards and seven touchdowns — including 329 yards receiving two weeks ago. The Lions might be getting Nate Burleson back for this game as well which could significantly help the pass game. Reggie Bush has been everything the Lions had hoped for when they picked him up, rushing for 518 yards and two touchdowns while catching 31 passes for 335 yards and two touchdowns.
Defensively, the Bears have been far below average this season. It looks like they have lost sight of the defense they once used to possess and rank near the bottom of the league in every major category — 29th in points allowed and 26th in points allowed per game. The Lions aren’t much better, ranking 18th in points allowed and 25th in total yards allowed. However, the front seven has been solid, ranking 14th in rushing yards allowed.
