Detroit Lions vs. Chicago Bears: Takeaways from Detroit's 21-19 Win

Ladies and gentlemen, the Detroit Lions hold first place in the NFC North all by themselves. Thanks to a 21-19 victory at Soldier Field, the Lions are now 6-3 while the Bears sit at 5-4. The Green Bay Packers lost to the Philadelphia Eagles to also fall to 5-4. 

The Lions completed an exceedingly rare season sweep of Chicago, which gives Detroit the head-to-head tiebreaker in addition to the one-game lead in the standings. 

Detroit next travels to Pittsburgh to take on the 3-6 Steelers, who beat the Buffalo Bills in an early Sunday game. Chicago hosts the Baltimore Ravens in Week 11. 

Here are my initial takeaways from Detroit's important victory.
