This Monday, the Detroit Lions will have the chance to improve to 5-0 and make their case to the nation why they are the NFL's best. To do this, the Lions need to get through last season's NFC North champion, the Chicago Bears. The Lions and the Bears have met just four times on Monday night. The Detroit Lions have dominated these games, outscoring the Chicago Bears 116-54 and leads the series 3-1. Their most recent matchup was a 27-7 Detroit Lions victory back in 1995.
Sixteen years later, the Chicago Bears and the Detroit Lions get the opportunity to meet again on Monday Night Football.
This year, the Detroit Lions are coming in as the hottest team in the league, currently on an eight-game regular season win streak, the longest active in the NFL. These wins have not come easily though, as the Lions have been outscored by opponents 40-3 in the first half the past two weeks. The Detroit Lions will need to play four quarters of football against a very tough NFC North division rival.
Here is a look at six players who will need to have big nights for their team to come away with the victory.
