Once again the Lions will have to bear the cold of Soldier Field when they head to Chicago for their final regular season game.

The Bears will likely be trying to play spoiler by this time of the season. Not only do they play the Lions near the end of the season, they also take on the Vikings in week 15 and the Packers in week 12. The Bears are likely to put up one heck of fight in this game just as they did their final meeting with the Lions in 2014. Although I’m sure the Bears won’t be starting Jimmy Clausen this time.

The Bears try with all their might but aren’t able to overcome the Lions as they lose their sixth straight game to Detroit. My early 2016 proclamation is that the Bears end this streak. Win (11-5)

There you have it Lions fans. I predict the Lions finish 11-5 and return back to the playoffs. What do you think? Leave your comments below.
