Lions vs. Bears: SB Nation video preview

Joe Robbins

The Lions can get back to .500 with a win in Chicago on Monday.

The Lions are in Chicago to take on the Bears on Monday night, and Detroit will be going for its second win in a row. Detroit finds itself last in the NFC North after its 2-3 start, but a win in Chicago could help it build some momentum for the rest of the season. The Bears come in at 4-1 and sit atop the division; a loss would drop them into second place.

In the video below, Jerry Mallory of SB Nation's Pride Of Detroit analyzes the matchup and offers up seven keys to a Detroit victory. The play of Detroit's front seven will be crucial, according to Mallory, as the Lions will need to limit Chicago's ground game and also put some pressure on quarterback Jay Cutler, who has thrown seven interceptions this season. Mallory would also like to see the Lions clean up some of the penalty issues they've had up to this point.
