Bears Search for Offensive Touch in Home Clash with Rival Lions

The Chicago Bears will try to halt a two-game SU losing streak when they host the Detroit Lions in a Week 11 clash of NFC North rivals at Soldier Field. The Bears offence has sputtered during the team’s slide, capped by last week’s 23-16 loss to Green Bay as 4.5-point home chalk. The Lions ride a two-game SU win streak after dominating Cleveland in last week’s 38-24 win as 10.5-point home chalk.
