ANOTHER BIG NFC NORTH DIVISIONAL MATCH UP HEADING OUR WAY!
This past weekend we watched the struggling for a W Detroit Lions battle the not fully healthy Chicago Bears. The Lions were looking for their first win and the Bears were hoping for a 3 game win streak.
This turned into an OT battle no one expected.
The Lions scored first and refused to let up against Cutler and his boys.
Meanwhile the Bears fans were sure this would be an easy victory considering the Lions were sitting 0-5 and the Bears had been on the rise since Cutler returned from injury. Unfortunately, the Lions had a little more faith and refused to lose this given Sunday despite the boos from thousands of Bears fans that made the trip for support. The Bears fell to the Lions giving them their not only their first season W, but divisional W. Shockingly the Lions are 1-1 in the division and the Bears are 0-2.
Up next the Vikings travel to Ford Field for a 2nd division match up this season.
The first meeting was extremely physical even causing a bit of concern from a few players. Lions Golden Tate even complained publicly of the many dirty hits after a okay was called dead.
We do know the Vikings are sitting (but not pretty) 3-2 in the NFC North at the number 2 spot. While we are still waiting for that dominant break out game from Adrian Peterson we’ve seen in the past, he has proved to be a hard o to stop for the Lions. The Vikings defense is also in full effect and honesty what’s been keeping this men of the Purple & Gold in the W column. So are the Lions, coming of a great win, capable of snagging back to back W’s in their division?
Hey fans share your thoughts on who takes the win in the on NFC North Match Up this weekend.
