The Bears were considered one of the best teams in the NFL when they were 7-1. Jay Cutler missed some time and suddenly the Bears are trying to find a way to make the playoffs. The biggest problem for the Bears offense is their offensive line. It has not helped that the Bears have one quality receiver in Brandon Marshall.

Detroit wide out Calvin Johnson recently broke Jerry Rice’s single season mark for receiving yards in a season. The Lions have been in free fall since last season. The Lions have lost their last seven games their longest slide since going 0-16 during 2008.
