>>Lions Head To Windy City For Crucial NFC North Tilt With Bears

(Chicago, IL)  --  The Detroit Lions head to Soldier Field on Sunday for a crucial NFC North tilt against the Chicago Bears.  The Bears have won three straight to sit just one game back of the Lions at 5-and-3.  Chicago went into the City of Brotherly Love for "Monday Night Football" in Week Nine and came away with an important 30-24 win over the Philadelphia Eagles.  The Bears now hold a tiebreaker over the Falcons, Buccaneers and Eagles in the NFC playoff picture.  The Lions are coming off their bye.  In Week Eight, Detroit snapped a two-game slide with a dominant 45-10 victory over the Denver Broncos to improve to 6-and-2.  Detroit beat Chicago 24-13 in Week Five at Ford Field.

>>Rams Look for Win Number Two

(Cleveland, OH)  --  The St. Louis Rams head to the shores of Lake Erie to go up against the Cleveland Browns Sunday at Cleveland Browns Stadium.  The Rams saw the return of quarterback Sam Bradford last week after he missed the previous two games with a high-ankle sprain.  Coming off the first win of the season the week before against New Orleans, St. Louis lost 19-13 in overtime at Arizona when rookie Patrick Peterson returned a punt 99 yards for the winning score.  That dropped the Rams to an NFC-worst 1-and-7.  The Browns have dropped back-to-back road games to fall to 3-and-5.
