Top Storyline
After a four-game stretch against the AFC East, the Bears now enter a three-game schedule of divisional games starting with the Lions this week. Chicago kicked off the season in a competitive primetime divisional matchup with the Packers but ultimately fell. Chicago is looking to capture its first win against a divisional opponent since October of 2016 and retain first place in the division.

All better now
The Bears have been shorthanded on both sides of the ball in their last two games. Defensively, linebacker Khalil Mack has missed the last two games with an ankle injury and defensive tackle Bilal Nichols was inactive last week versus the Bills. On the offensive side of the ball, tight end Ben Braunecker was out against the Bills and receiver Allen Robinson II missed the last two weeks with a groin injury. All of them returned to practice Wednesday and should be ready to go on Sunday.  

History Lesson
The Bears are 97-74-5 all-time against the Lions. Ten of the last 12 meetings between the two have been decided by single digits. The Lions won both matchups last year.
