Sunday NFL Football Analysis: The Bears will get starting QB Jay Cutler back when they try to beat their second straight NFC North front runner this week.  Looking to build on a win at Lambeau against the Packers the Bears will try to sweep the Lions for the first time since 2007.  The Lions, Bears and Packers are in a three way tie atop the NFC North heading into Sunday’s important game.  The Bears broke Aaron Rodgers collar bone and won 27-20 on Monday Night Football, so they’re heading into this game on short rest.  Under new head coach Mark Trestman the Bears are the second ranked offense in the NFL averaging 30 points per game with the most improved offensive line in the NFL.  Despite being very thin at defensive tackle and starting a pair of rookie linebackers, the Chicago defense has been strong since facing the Lions earlier this season.  They are 29th in the league against the run and gave up 140 to Reggie Bush in the earlier meeting.  Combine that with three Jay Cutler turnovers and the Lions scored 40 against them in September.  The Lions are coming off their bye week and are looking to build on a dramatic win against Dallas two weeks ago.  They have lost six straight road divisional games and have a very hard time winning at Chicago.  Calvin Johnson has thrived against the Bears in his last two games against them, after struggling with them earlier in his career.  With the questionable health of Cutler and the big difference in preparation time, Detroit should be able to force a few turnovers in this contest.  Reggie Bush plays much better indoors than outside in the cold, but he will get plenty of carries and keep the Chicago offense off the field.  Detroit’s strong defensive front and running game have them in a position to win the division for the first time in 20 years and they will be the frontrunner after a win in Chicago.

Detroit Lions at Chicago Bears Game Prediction: 27-20 Lions
What to expect in this NFL Football match up: 
The Bears will start quick with momentum and the crowd behind them early in the game to build a lead.  Detroit will wear down Chicago over the course of the game with fast tempo, quick strikes and a heavy dose of Reggie Bush.  In the second half the difference in preparation time will be a factor as Chicago’s six days to get ready will leave them hurt and tired while Detroit scores in the fourth quarter to seal the game.
