Chicago Bears vs Detroit Lions 1st Quarter Open Thread

Join us below for live updates and instant analysis for today's Bears vs Lions game! The stage is all set for the Chicago Bears to get their season turned around-- all they have to do is go out and beat the Detroit Lions. Sounds simple, right?
