Bears Attempt To Take Control Of NFC North Opposite Lions
9/28/2013 8:32:19 AM
The Bears have a chance to make a statement in the NFC North on the road against the Lions Sunday afternoon. Chicago sits by itself in first place at 3-and-0 followed by Detroit at 2-and-1. Under new head coach Marc Trestman, the Bears have fixed their offensive line problems and have only allowed Jay Cutler to be sacked three times. Cutler is playing efficient football, completing 67-percent of his passes with six touchdowns and three interceptions. They eeked out two wins over the Bengals and Minnesota before smoking the Steelers, 40-23. Detroit returns home after splitting two road games with a loss at Arizona and a victory in Washington D.C. Wide receiver Calvin Johnson has accounted for three touchdowns and 231 yards receiving after a poor opening game. Running back Reggie Bush is expected to be back in the lineup after missing last week.
