The Chicago Bears will return to Soldier field this Sunday to face a Detroit Lion team who is on their longest winning streak in nearly a season and a half, one game.
But in the last few years, the Bears have pretty much been the only team that Detroit has had a chance against. So don’t expect the Bears to take the struggling Lions lightly.
After a shaky start on both offense and defense, the Bears have come away with two straight wins. The receivers have shown that they are capable of catching passes from Cutler, and the defense has proven itself to be effective, but not perfect.
Kickoff is at high noon on Sunday, but the festivities begin two hours before that. Show up for the Bears Ultimate Tailgate on the southeast lawn just outside the stadium.
It isn’t football without the Bears, and it isn’t Sunday without a tailgate. Get autographs from Bear alumni, eat free food and sign up for contests. Admission is free, so if you don’t have a ticket to the game you can still celebrate a rising Bears team.
