Larry Brown Sports:
Jalen Rose was so upset with the lack of support for his Detroit Lions prior to “Monday Night Football,” he made an outrageous wager. The ESPN NBA analyst said he’d shave his head, goatee, and eyebrows if the Lions lost to the Bears.
What bugged Rose was seeing ESPN’s entire “Monday Night Countdown” staff pick the Bears to win the game.
Sooooo my entire @espn MNF family is picking the Bears. Lions will win this game. #NFL

Naturally, the Lions did little against the tough Chicago defense, and didn’t even score until the final minute. They lost 13-7, and Rose lost his bet.
When reminded after the game that he needed to pay up, Rose said “I got this. #salty”
The lost bet on “Monday Night Football” didn’t stop the Michigan native from continuing to place wagers on sports events:

BEST OF MAXIM
ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- The spotlight is going to be on the Detroit Lions special teams for the near future.
Every mistake will be magnified because of the two punt returns and two kick returns allowed for touchdowns in a recent two-game stretch.
This weeks goat is return specialist Stefan Logan, who muffed a punt on a fair catch at the Detroit 27-yard line early in the second half...
Lions second-round selection Ryan Broyles made his first contributions of the season for Detroit, catching three balls for 51 yards and a score. They were his first catches of the season after rehabing from an ACL injury he suffered last November at Oklahoma.Fantasy Spin:Titus Young and Broyles will both see plenty of opportunities with Burleson gone for the season due to a broken...
SOCIAL MEDIA SMACK TALK
Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall took to Twitter following the game Monday night to call out Lions defensive lineman Ndomukong Suh for his sack of Jay Cutler.
When a guy nicknamed Megatron is wide open and drops a pass for a big play on your opening drive, youre probably in for a long night.
It was indeed a very long night for the Detroit Lions.
Despite a valiant effort by their improving defense, the Lions failed to win a game they desperately needed for their playoff hopes Monday night.
The Chicago Bears shut down the Lions once-powerful...
Hey, at least Ndamukong Suh didn’t stomp on Jay Cutler after sacking him during Monday Night Football between the Bears and Lions. Cutler returned to the game, but had to go to the locker room early during halftime for rib evaluation.
Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford has struggled this season and is not a great play this week against Seattle.
We are nearly at the mid-point of the fantasy football season, which means that bye weeks are now in full swing and some fantasy owners are simply trying to hang on for dear life as their season potentially hangs in the balance.
This week, the quarterback position is...

Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall isn't happy with Ndamukong Suh and his violent play on Monday night. Although the Lions defensive tackle was not flagged and will not be fined for the controversial play on quarterback Jay Cutler, Marshall took his rage to Twitter after the game.
"A Suh. What u did to Jay wasn't cool. Great players don't have to do that,"...
Coming off a season-saving, confidence-building overtime victory at Philadelphia, the Detroit Lions head to Chicago to take on the Bears in a Monday Night match-up between bitter rivals.
Here are five storylines to watch:
1. Perceptions change so rapidly in the NFL. After a shaky Week 2 loss to Green Bay, the Bears were getting ripped and downgraded. Now theyre back up to No. 4...
Coming into the season, Calvin Johnson was the consensus first wide receiver off the board. Most pundits – including myself though I don’t like calling myself a pundit…feels like I’m calling myself a dirty word – had Calvin in their top 5 overall and coming into tonight, there was still good reason for that type of stature despite the missing touchdowns. And even after...
Bears and Lions. Doesn’t exactly have the same aura as Bears and Packers but in this day the rivalry is just as big, if not bigger. Although the Bears players have taken the high road when asked about their hatred toward the Lions it no secret there is no love lost here.This Lions bunch has been labeled dirty -- no matter how much fourth-year quarterback Matthew Stafford wants...
