Under the big lights of Monday Night Football, it was the Detroit Lions who succumbed to the pressure while the Chicago Bears held strong.As the 13-7 score dictates, both defenses played well, but it was Chicago’s defense that won the game.The Bears came up with one big play after another, forcing four Lions turnovers, none bigger than a Joique Bell fumble at the Bears’ goal line.The Bell fumble wasn’t the Lions only fumble of the game. In fact, four different Lions coughed it up a total of six times on Monday night. Mikel Leshoure lost a critical fumble as the Lions were driving in the second quarter, Brandon Pettigrew dropped the football on back-to-back touches, and punt returner Stepfan Logan muffed two punts, losing one.The Lions simply couldn’t hang onto the football in this game, and gave momentum back to Chicago time and time again. In addition to Bell giving it away in close, Leshoure’s fumble also came in the red zone, killing a Detroit drive that likely would have ende...

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.
Wideout Brian Robiskie was signed by the Detroit Lions to replace Nate Burleson.Fantasy Spin:Robiskie will take his roster spot, but Burleson's targets will go to Titus Young and Ryan Broyles. Robiskie has no fantasy value at this time.
Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford has struggled this season and is not a great play this week against Seattle.

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...
