This ugly season will come to an end for the Detroit Lions, but will their losing streak? The Lions play their final game Sunday afternoon at Ford Field against the Chicago Bears, who are still in playoff contention.
Here are five storylines to follow:
1. Have the Bears not heard that youre supposed to let sleeping Lions lie?
Chicago still has a very realistic shot at making the playoffs despite losing five of its last seven games after a 7-1 start.
The Bears need a victory and a Minnesota loss or tie at Green Bay to clinch one of the NFC wild-card berths.
Detroit, on the other hand, appears to be down and out with a 4-11 record, a seven-game losing streak and nothing but the role of spoiler to play.
So why are the Bears talking trash to risk waking up their NFC North division rival?
It makes no sense. Keep your mouth shut and just watch the Lions self-destruct one more time.
But here are the Bears mouthing off. Defensive tackle Henry Melton pulled out the old dirty card on ...
BEST OF MAXIM
As a Detroit Lions fan this is especially painful. I honestly don’t even know what the point of this commercial was, but it was a combination of terrible writing, acting, and execution. It’s so bad that you have to see it to believe it actually happened.Video via: Kensington Church YouTube Channel
And Detroit fans can breathe a collective sigh of relief.
After 17 weeks of underachievement, miscues and disappointment, the 2012 season will be over for the Detroit Lions.
And not a moment too soon.
This game that airs Sunday at 1:05p.m. on Fox is the last one that Lions faithful will be forced to endure until next season rolls around.
At 4-11, the Lions have only pride and draft...
The smile has rarely left Calvin Johnson's face since he broke Jerry Rice's NFL record for receiving yards in a single season against Atlanta on Dec. 22.
Don't let Johnson's smile fool you. Underneath that cheery expression, there's a fierce competitor who wants to make Rice's accomplishments a distant second to his own effort this year.
In advance of the showdown between Chicago and Detroit this weekend, Major Wright took a shot at Matthew Stafford about how the Lions QB handles pressure.
Seemingly half-man, half-machine, Detroit Lions wideout Calvin Johnson — the All-Pro wideout known simply as “Megatron,” a nickname inspired by...
Chicago Bears safety Major Wright told the media that Lions quarterback Mathew Stafford has a hard time dealing with pressure.
“You put a little pressure on him, you close the pocket on him, and he hesitates,” Wright said Wednesday. “He doesn’t make that perfect throw.”
Wright said Stafford “kind of folds” under pressure, and the numbers support his argument. The Lions...
Bears’ safety, Major Wright called out Matt Stafford
Per a report from Josh Katzenstein of DetroitNews.com, Chicago Bears safety Major Wright believes their defense have the key to neutralizing Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford.
“You put a little pressure on him, you close the pocket on him, and he hesitates. He doesn’t make that perfect throw.”
Wednesday afternoon NFL Pro Bowl rosters were announced and unsurprisingly Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson was selected as a starter for the NFC squad. During a year in which he started out slow, Megatron has been simply amazing down the stretch breaking Jerry Rice’s single season yardage record and could eclipse 2,000 receiving yards on the season this coming weekend against...
Lions wideout Calvin Johnson is on the verge of 2,000 receiving yards this season. Even though Detroit is 4-11, the Bears will have their hands full with a motivated Megatron come Sunday.

While a second-half collapse has put their postseason hopes in doubt, the Chicago Bears managed to stay alive with a big win last weekend.
