Detroit Lions vs. Chicago Bears picks: Playoff hopes will keep alive

Detroit Lions vs. Chicago Bears picks: Playoff hopes will keep alive

Have thoughts on how the Bears and Lions are performing?

The Lions have a lot to be dancing about in the early going of Saturday's game against the Bears. Jordan Howard ran for 147 yards and became Chicago's first player to begin a career with 1,000-plus yards rushing in each of his first two seasons.

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

How can you tune in to the NFL Network Special on Saturday featuring Chicago and Detroit?

Tarik Cohen nearly had another huge play to add to his highlight reel. The Lions' defense ranks 27th overall but it has proved it can be opportunistic against bad teams.

As you can see, the Lions will be without Travis Swanson in the middle, as well as Zach Zenner and Dwayne Washington, meaning Theo Riddick will most likely carry the load with the downgrading of Ameer Abdullah.

The Bears will also be without safety Adrian Amos, who will miss his third straight game due to a hamstring injury. Guard T.J. Lang, who had been listed as questionable with a foot injury, is active and will start against the Chicago Bears.
