The Chicago Bears extended their winning streak to four games, and simultaneously showed the NFL that they are for real via their 37-13 romping of the Detroit Lions on Sunday.
This Chicago Bears team is quite similar to last year's team that went to the NFC championship game. They both had quiet starts, and hit their stride during mid-season, riding the coattails of the defense and special teams.
The difference this year is that the offense is actually good, they are not a great unit, but they are definetly better than last season.
With each win we continue to learn more about this 2011 team, and this win over the Lions was a great example of how much they have grown.
