Chicago and Detroit are sports rivals, regardless of the league or teams involved. Anytime a team from Detroit and Chicago play, the environment is hostile and the game itself is intense. Sunday was no exception, especially the hostile environment.â†µ
Following the Bears game, you can bet the Lions wanted to get out of Chicago as quickly as possible. As if it wasn't bad enough that Detroit lost the game after it originally seemed they had scored the go-ahead touchdown, they also lost their starting quarterback to another injury. All in all it was a pretty bad day in that regard, and some Bears fans decided to rub it in with a one-fingered salute as the Lions left Soldier Field, per Zack Follett.â†µ
Leaving the stadium as I look out the window Chicago fans flipping us the bird.. I don't think they realize what we WILL do to them later this seasonâ†µ
Every fan base has a few people that can't win or lose without being a dbag about it, so this obviously isn't a very big deal. I do like Follett's attitude, though. The Lions wanted to beat the Bears for more than just a 1-0 record, and Follett believes they will in fact get it done in the second game of the season against Chicago. Game No. 2 isn't until Dec. 5, so barring another injury you would think Matthew Stafford will be back in time for a chance at redemption against the Bears.
