Lions host Bears in rare Saturday game

Prediction Can the Bears carry over what they did in Cincinnati to Detroit

In the first of two games, NFC North rivals Chicago and Detroit go head-to-head at Ford Field with the Lions looking to keep their playoff hopes alive in front of their home fans.

The Lions are banged up on the offensive line entering the game.

Behind some impressive running by rookie running Tion Green, the Lions worked their way into the red zone, but quarterback Matthew Stafford missed high on a throw to tight end Eric Ebron in the end zone, leading to Prater's make.

Jones' 58-yard catch led to a Lions touchdown three plays later when Stafford hit T.J. Jones with a three-yard touchdown pass. Jones out-jumped Bears rookie safety Eddie Jackson for the reception.

The Lions have been turning heads in the celebration department all season long, and they brought their A game on Saturday.

The Bears' only real highlights of the first half were a Tarik Cohen kickoff return that got called back on a holding penalty, and recovering a fumble by Detroit's Theo Riddick just before halftime to set up a field goal.
