The undefeated Bears take the city of Detroit to face the Lions, this Sunday at 1 PM ET at Ford Field, for the NFL Week 4.
The Bears are 3-0 after beating the Steelers in Pittsburgh last week. Chicago has a 13-1 record when their defense scores a touchdown.
“That’s what we do, we take the ball away,” defensive end Julius Peppers said. “We stress it in practice every day, and it carries over to the game … we have to continue to do that on a weekly basis to continue to win, and I believe we’ll be able to do that.”
Detroit is 2-1 but has lost nine of the last 10 games against the Bears. They know their division, the NFC north, is one of the best in the NFL.
“The urgency is there for everybody to improve and to get the next win,” coach Jim Schwartz said. “I’m certainly not downplaying the importance of any game, but we treat them all with respect and we want to win every single one.
“NFC North games mean an awful lot because No. 1, it’s a chance for you to win the game, but No. 2, it’s a chance to put a loss on one of your opponents without having somebody else have to help you do it. They’re certainly important. I’m not up here to tell you it’s not.”
The Lions will have back running back Reggie Bush after he missed last week contest against the Redskins; however coach Schwartz hasn’t said what his role in the game will be.
Detroit is a 3 point favorite for Sunday, with the game total set at 47.5 points.
