The Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions share a 5-3 record atop the NFC North with a chance to grab first place in this week 10 Sunday NFL schedule game. Jay Cutler is back from injury and ready to start for the Bears when we watch Lions vs Bears online free live streaming NFL football game on Fox by following the links found below.
Chicago coach Marc Trestman announced on Thursday after practice that Jay Cutler is clear to start at quarterback for the Bears. Cutler went down in a high-scoring loss to the Redskins but only missed one complete game as the Bears had a bye week before they beat the Packers 27-20 on Monday Night Football six days ago with Josh McCown filling in at quarterback.
Before Cutler went down, he had throw 12 touchdown passes versus seven interceptions and 1,658 yards passing. A much-improved offensive line is partially due for better play from the quarterback position as Cutler and McCown have only been sacked a total of 12 times this year. Last season Cutler was being dropped right and left for an average of more than three sacks per game through the first half of the season.
The Bears running game has been improving on a week-to-week basis with Matt Forte reeling off 125 yards last week against the Packers, a season high. However, their run defense still has much room for improvement as the Packers were able to rack up 199 yards on the ground against them. Strong play from the secondary helped Chicago stay in the game, and we’ll be looking to see how the Bears handle Reggie Bush today when we watch Lions vs Bears online streaming from windy Chicago.
Detroit has played well this year to share a piece of the division lead with Chicago and Green Bay, but historically they struggle playing at Chicago having dropped five in a row. A small consolation is that three of those past five losses have been decided by less than a touchdown, so at least the Lions are playing competitively in the unfriendly road environment.
Detroit starting quarterback Matthew Stafford will be looking to improve upon the three touchdown passes versus six interceptions he has tallied in his past four trips to Soldier Field. With Detroit having their bye week last week, they will be well rested when we watch NFL Sunday Football Bears vs Lions on Fox today, while the Bears are coming off a short week.
All eyes will be on Calvin Johnson who tore up the Cowboys secondary for 329 yards on 14 catches receiving two weeks ago. That was the second-highest receiving total in the history of the NFL and proved what Johnson is capable of doing on any given Sunday. Chicago’s secondary will need to be on its toes as Johnson is hotter than a firecracker right now.
The Detroit Lions vs Chicago Bears NFL week 10 Sunday Football game has a start time of 1pm EST / 10am PST and be televised on Fox in high definition (HD). What Fox channel to watch the game on in your area can be found by checking your local listings.

Chicago is playing well right now and so are the Lions, so I suspect home field advantage will be key today and the Bears will eek out a win a stay atop the NFC North by winning the game on the final play of the game.
