Monday Night Football this week featured the Detroit Lions as they hosted the Chicago Bears at Ford Field in Detroit. This was the first time in a decade that the Lions have been showcased on Monday night.

Detroit's young stars were in full form as Matthew Stafford, Jahvid Best and Calvin Johnson all performed well in a winning effort.

Chicago's QB was no slouch either. Jay Cutler silenced a lot of detractors as he fought through poor protection and plenty of dropped passes to turn in a solid effort.

Updated Score: Detroit Lions win, 24-13.
