The Bears aren’t ‘‘Monday Night Football’’ rookies.

But the Detroit Lions, who were hosting their first ‘‘MNF’’ game since 2001,

reveled in the prime-time spotlight, calling on renowned ring announcer Michael Buffer to introduce them.

Everything about the Lions’ first Monday Night Football appearance in a decade was special. The record-setting crowd. The head-splitting noise. And especially the outcome.

Make no mistake: The Detroit Lions gave their city a first-in-a-generation scene Monday night.

If the Chicago Bears’ 2011 season effectively ended with the first Monday Night Football game for the Detroit Lions in a decade, they have no one to blame but themselves.

On the second Tuesday of October, the Detroit Lions are undefeated.

If you have said that before in your lifetime, you are getting old.
