What will the NFL do with Dominic Raiola?

After stomping on a Chicago Bears player on Sunday, is a suspension coming Dominic Raiola's way? It's entirely possible that the Detroit Lions will be playing for the NFC North title next week without their starting center. That's because Dominic Raiola stomped on Chicago Bears defensive tackle Ego Ferguson during Sunday's game: Here's another look at Riola stepping on Ego Ferguson. #Bears #NFL @adamhoge (totally intentional) https://t.co/4q7FsgK8s4 — Bear Heiser (@BearHeiser) December 21, 2014 After the game, Raiola claimed that the stomp was inadvertent, and he also apparently...

New Quarterback, Same Result as Lions Top Bears 20-14

The Bears switch at quarterback looked good for awhile, but in the end it was the same old story, as Chicago fell to the Lions 20-14 at home Sunday. Thanks to a late touchdown run by Joique Bell, the Lions managed to get past Jimmy Clausen and the chaotic Chicago Bears 20-14 Sunday Chicago benched […]

Jay Glazer: Chicago Bears in play for Jim Harbaugh

Reports surfaced a couple weeks ago that Marc Trestman will likely be fired after the season, and on Sunday, Jay Glazer indicates the Chicago Bears may be front-runners for Jim Harbaugh. The 2014 season has been wild and wacky for a handful of NFL teams, and the Chicago Bears and San Francisco 49ers are among the wildest. Reports surfaced a few weeks ago that Jim Harbaugh's tenure in San Francisco would likely come to an end after the 2014 season, and soon after came reports that the same was likely in Chicago for Marc Trestman. Chicago Bears fans immediately began swarming, calling for a...

Lions-Bears final score: Detroit improves to 11-4 with 20-14 win

The Detroit Lions came awfully close to letting Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears slip away, but they ultimately won to improve to 11-4 on the season. The Detroit Lions have seemingly mastered the art of winning ugly. There have been several games this season where past Lions teams likely wouldn't have been able to overcome their sloppiness, but this year's team has been different in that regard. The latest example was Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears. The Lions made mistakes throughout the game and allowed the Bears to hang around, but that didn't matter since Detroit won in...

Bears vs Lions Final Score: Clausen Starts, but Bears Still Lose, 20-14

The Bears reached double-digit losses as they fell on Sunday to the playoff-bound Lions. Jimmy Clausen's first NFL start in three years was an interesting one. Getting the start in place of a benched Jay Cutler, Clausen played pretty well, though plagued by seven drops (that's the FOX count) and aided on a penalty in the second quarter as well as three takeaways by the Bears' defense. It wasn't enough as Clausen's final throw was picked off by Glover Quin, and the Lions took the game, 20-14. The Lions started with a long touchdown drive, and you thought maybe it was going to be another one...

Chicago Bears vs Detroit Lions 4th Quarter Open Thread

Join us below for live updates and instant analysis of today's Bears game! **SCORE UPDATE** Chicago Bears  14 Detroit Lions  10 ----------------------------- The Chicago Bears showed some life in the 3rd quarter, particularly in taking advantage of a Detroit Lions roughing the kicker penalty that extended the Bears offensive drive.  The Bears went up 14-10 on the Jimmy Clausen to Alshon Jaffery 20 yard touchdown pass with just under 3 minutes left in the quarter. Soldier Field has been largely unhappy most of the day, but for most of the third quarter, they had calmed down to just being...

Chicago Bears vs Detroit Lions 3rd Quarter Open Thread

Join us below for live updates and instant analysis of today's Chicago Bears game! **SCORE UPDATE** Chicago Bears 7 Detroit Lions 7 ----------------------------- Entering today's game versus the Bears, quarterback Matthew Stafford held the NFL's longest streak of passes without an interception. In the first half versus Chicago, however, that came to an end. Stafford threw two interceptions to the Bears defense, but Chicago was unable to convert either of them into points. There's been little offensive production so far for the Bears, which is on par with how the majority of the season has...

Chicago Bears vs Dteroit Lions 2nd Quarter Open Thread

Join us below for live discussion and instant analysis of today's Chicago Bears game! **SCORE UPDATE** Chicago Bears 0 Detroit Lions 7 ----------------------------- Today is the final game of the season at Soldier Field, and the Bears fans that decided to attend have come out for the second week in a row voicing their rather strong opinions of the current state of affairs. On the Bears first possession of the game, they were faced with 3rd and 8, and decided to run a delayed handoff. It didn't work, and they of course punted. The Lions took their second possession of the game straight to...

Chicago Bears vs Detroit Lions 1st Quarter Open Thread

As the season winds down, join us below for live updates and instant analysis of today's Bears game! Two more games... Win or lose, let's just get this thing over with. The Chicago Bears return to Soldier Field this afternoon for what can only be assumed will be a day full of boos, with a lot of empty seats around the stadium. The Lions are obviously still fighting for post-season position, and there is little reason to believe that Chicago will be able to put up much of a fight. That is, of course, unless now-starting quarterback Jimmy Clausen can come in and provide a similar type of...

NFL week 16 Saturday Night Football open thread: Philadelphia-Washington and San Diego-San Francisco

Hey, games on a Saturday. Talk about them here. A couple of week 16 games for your viewing pleasure tonight that have one thing in common: one of the teams is chasing a playoff spot, and the other is playing spoiler. First up, the NFC East.  The 9-5 Philadelphia Eagles are coming off back-to-back losses to the Seattle Seahawks and the 10-4 Dallas Cowboys, and travel to play a Washington team that's 3-11 and propping up the bottom of the division. The Mark Sanchez-led Eagles need to win both tonight and their final game against the New York Giants, and hope that the Seahawks, Green Bay...

Bears Vs Lions: Six-Pack Keys to Victory

We're offering our six keys for a Bears victory as they take on the Lions for the second time. 1) The Right Side Looking at the stats and play groupings over on PFR, one thing is pretty apparent, especially if you look from the middle on over to the right and in the shorter plays and throws. Joique Bell on plays from the middle through the right tackle spot  had 13 carries for 75 yards. On completions thrown short and to the right Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate combined for 12 receptions for 114 yards. There was a lot of damage done over there on Thanksgiving day, and the Bears will have...

Mocking the Mocks: Whom does SI's Chris Burke think the Bears will take?

Mock draft season has begun in Chicago. Who do the Bears take in this edition of Mocking the Mocks? Now that Lester's officially opened WCG Mock Draft Season by sharing Todd McShay's mock draft with us, we've got a second one already, as Sports Illustrated's Chris Burke released his mock draft. Using the same number nine overall pick that McShay used for the Bears, keeping in mind this still has time to change by the end of the season, the Chicago Bears select... Shane Ray, the defensive end from Missouri. And here's what Burke said about this spot: The Bears would be ecstatic under these...

Chicago Bears vs Detroit Lions: Game Time, TV Schedule, Radio, Odds, Streaming and More

The Bears play against the Lions on Sunday afternoon. How can you follow the game? This week adds the new twist of the benching of Jay Cutler, as Jimmy Clausen gets his first start since his rookie year. Regardless of whether it's because a trade is in place, the Bears trust Clausen a little more than Cutler now, or they're trying to protect their multi-million dollar investment, it looks to be the Jimmy Clausen show going forward. As the Lions push towards a division crown, the Bears may well be officially rebuilding. But there's still a game coming up on Sunday. So how can you follow the...

Bears player to watch against Lions: Matt Forte

This week, the opposing player to watch against the Detroit Lions is Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte. I would have loved to take this opportunity to rip on Jay Cutler once again after his demotion. Not just a demotion. A demotion in favor of Jimmy Clausen. Fantastic. You cannot make this stuff up. Instead, let's talk about someone who is actually going to play this week: running back Matt Forte. Midway through the season, Forte looked unstoppable. The Chicago Bears were shoveling him 25 to 30 touches per week, and he was putting in huge yardage numbers regularly. In six games this...

Lions at Bears: Game time, TV schedule, online streaming, odds, announcers and more

The Detroit Lions do battle with the Chicago Bears on Sunday afternoon. Here's everything you need to know. The Detroit Lions are one win away from clinching a spot in the playoffs. On Sunday, they will have an opportunity to get that win with a road game against the Chicago Bears. The Lions just beat the Bears on Thanksgiving, and another win this week will send them back to the postseason for the first time since the 2011 season. Here's a look at the details for Sunday's game between the Lions and Bears: Game time: 1 p.m. ET on Sunday, Dec. 21, 2014 Location: Soldier Field • Chicago,...

Chicago Bears Injury Report: Chris Conte and Robbie Gould are out

The Detroit Lions will travel to Soldier Field to take on the Chicago Bears in a game with playoff implications. If Detroit wins they will guarantee a postseason appearance. Here's the full injury report for both teams. Two Chicago Bears have already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions. Safety Chris Conte (back) and kicker Robbie Gould (quad) will both sit out again. This means more playing time for Brock Vereen at safety and more kicking work for Jay Feely. The Bears list 4 players as questionable, meaning there is a 50% chance they play, Corner Tim Jennings (ankle),...

Lions-Bears injury report: Nearly everybody is probable

Aside from Nick Fairley and Mohammed Seisay, everybody on the Detroit Lions' injury report is probable for Sunday's game. There's really nothing too notable about this week's injury report for the Detroit Lions. Defensive tackle Nick Fairley is out, which isn't a surprise considering he still hasn't returned to practice, and cornerback Mohammed Seisay is questionable thanks to a hamstring injury. Everybody else on the injury report is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears. This means that guys like offensive guard Rob Sims and defensive end George Johnson, who...

Where did it all go wrong?

It wasn't so long ago that there was plenty of hope and optimism for the 2014 Chicago Bears. Then the season started and it all went to hell in a hand basket. Back in August most fans looked at the Bears roster, coaching staff and the schedule and predicted 10 or 11 wins in most cases. Everything seemed to be pointing up. Looking at the roster additions, the upswing in offensive output and the shiny new contract that Jay Cutler signed, it seemed like everything was lining up for a return to the postseason. But it all went bad rather quickly. And now we just can't wait for it all to be...
