The Detroit Lions haven't lost a game on Monday Night Football in over a decade. Don't get too excited, though. They've only appeared once during that time. They might not have the most experience playing on MNF, but that doesn't mean they can't achieve victory on the NFL's biggest prime-time stage.
In fact, their defeat of the Chicago Bears on MNF last October was arguably the highlight of the season.
It wasn't their best game, though. They were saved by a home-field crowd that rattled the Bears' offensive line to the tune of nine false-start penalties.
The Lions defense provided consistent pressure on Jay Cutler, and Jahvid Best sprung an 88-yard run to finish the Bears off.
Heading into the rematch, both teams find their roles reversed. The Bears are the ones riding the hot streak, and they'll have the home-field advantage.
The Lions are riding a mini-hot streak themselves. Their win at Philadelphia was their best game of the year—at least from a defensive perspective. They'll look to ride that wave of positivity to victory on Monday.
Here's what the Lions need to do to make it two in a row against the Bears on Monday Night Football.
