Flawed Lions bring their season down to the wire
Bob Wojnowski – The Detroit News

"There was no confetti, no celebration, no giddiness. The Lions are a playoff team for the second time in 15 years, and that’s truly notable. So is this: If they want more, they’ll have to show more, and do it quickly."

    Brandon Alisoglu — Bleacher Report

    "The Detroit Lions weren’t supposed to have trouble with the Chicago Bears. That wasn’t the case, as Detroit eked out a crucial 20-14 win only by scoring 10 points in the fourth quarter.The first half was possibly the worst of the season. The Lions made a few plays that should have allowed for a nice lead. Instead, Detroit entered the locker room tied at seven."

    NOTEBOOK: Better play needed moving forward
    Tim Twentyman — DetroitLions.com

    "Matthew Stafford has to play better than he did Sunday if the Lions are going to win in Lambeau Field next week, or in the playoffs in the coming weeks.Stafford said as much after Sunday’s 20-14 win in Chicago."

    Lions must overcome history, ugly play for title
    Drew Sharp – Detroit Free Press

    "They earned their 11th victory this afternoon — 20-14 over the Bears — for only the fourth time in franchise history. They still hold the divisional tiebreaker over Green Bay — as well as the No. 2 playoff seed in the NFC.But simply displaying a lack of quit against a pouty Chicago team that quit on its season weeks ago doesn’t exactly project confidence as the Lions approach their biggest regular-season game in more than 20 years."

    Bears’ defense unhappy in loss
    Joe Aguilar — Daily Herald

    "In the end, though, the Bears missed multiple tackles on Joique Bell’s go-ahead rushing touchdown from 17 yards out in the fourth quarter. And they lost their fourth game in a row."
