Lions Plan To Win Against Chicago

(DETROIT, MI) – The Detroit Lions return home this weekend when they host the Chicago Bears in the first of two meetings this season between the two NFC North rivals. Kick-off is set for Sunday, September 29 at 1:00 p.m. ET at Ford Field.

The Lions will look to build momentum after a 27-20 road victory at Washington in Week 3, while the Bears will look to remain undefeated after a 40-23 victory at Pittsburgh.

When asked if the match-up against the Bears was important, Lions’ head coach Jim Schwartz said, “They all are. They are all games that we are trying to win. Getting a win is our only objective. We are not trying to measure ourselves against anybody else. We are trying to go do whatever we can to win that game.”

Sunday’s Lions-Bears matchup will mark the 167th meeting all-time between the two teams, with Chicago holding a 96-65-5 edge in the series. The last regular-season meeting was both teams’ 2012 season finale on December 30, 2012, when the Bears defeated the Lions 26-24 at Ford Field.

“We’ll sort of put a game plan together over the next couple days,” Schwartz said, “and we’ll get a good look at the Bears. But we know a lot of their personnel real well. They’re some big-time players.”

The Bears enter Sunday’s game having won the last three regular-season meetings in the series and nine of the past 10 matchups. Detroit’s series with the Bears is the second-oldest in the history of the Lions’ franchise, with the first game taking place on October 22, 1930.

  1. The Lion’s are dreaming if they think they have a chance in beating the Chicago Bears just not going to happen. Unfortunately Washington had some bad luck and it worked to the Lion’s benefit. GO CHICAGO BEARS
