Death, taxes, and Lions at Bears in the dead of winter. These are things that you can count on in life. Who knows what this game will be. You’re looking at two teams that won’t be making the playoffs this season and may turn to preserving their star players by benching them.

I can’t imagine either team starting their star quarterbacks in a meaningless game. Count on Calvin Johnson and Matt Forte to sit as well. But that indeed could make this game fun to watch. An ugly dog fight by two teams full of players that want to make one last impression going into the offseason that could decide their future.

Look for the Lions to get one last win and see Jim Caldwell walk off the field with the Lions for the last time. Sweeping changes begin the next day.


Final Record: 7-9
