Week 4 NFL preview: Bears vs. Lions

Chicago and Detroit meet in a battle for control of the NFC North. The Lions get Reggie Bush back from a knee injury, and the Bears have lost defensive lynchpin Henry Melton for the season. Matt Ufford previews the game, reflects on pizza-related injuries, and makes his pick.

Matt Ufford breaks down the huge divisional showdown between the Chicago Bears and the Detroit Lions, who will be battling for first place in the NFC North. With the Packers currently bogged down at 1-2, this could be a huge opportunity for one of these clubs to distance its lead. The Lions will be without Nate Burleson, who broke his arm while reenacting the car wreck scene from The Blind Side earlier this week -- though in this case, he was protecting a pizza.
