Greetings for NFL Gameday at the Windy City, Lions fans! A battle of 3 win teams in the NFC North play this afternoon, as the 3-4-1 Detroit Lions come to Chicago to play the Bears, in both teams 179th all-time series meeting.

Our Lions team are also ranked #3 in passing yards, also #31 in passing yards allowed by opponents. Lions are also ranked #21 in rushing yards, but are 27th in rushing yards allowed by opponents.
A win by Chicago over Detroit would be their 100th win, as they currently lead the all-time series entering today at 99-74-5.

Cloudy skies at 31 degrees, feels like 34 degrees, is the local gamecast inside Soldier Field, for the 1:05 PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, alone with 15% precipitation, 73% humidity, and northern winds at 12 miles per hour.
