The Detroit Lions haven’t won a matchup against the Chicago Bears since Dec. 16 of 2017, but they’ll be looking to end the drought on Sunday. They will face off at 1 p.m. ET Sept. 13 at Ford Field to kick off their 2020 seasons. Returning after a rocky 3-12-1 season, Detroit is aiming to prove that the past does not define them. Likewise, last year was nothing to brag about for Chicago (8-8), so the team is looking forward to a new start.
A couple defensive numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: The Lions ranked second worst with respect to yards allowed per game last year, where the squad gave up 400.4 on average. To make matters even worse for Detroit, Chicago was fourth best in passing touchdowns allowed, finishing the 2019 season giving up only 17. Look for both offensives to try attacking early to give their own defense a break.
The point spread is more or less neutral, so fans should expect a close contest. We’ll see if the game is as close as the oddsmakers expect or if one of these teams has a surprise blowout in them.
