This 2017 season's first edition of Saturday football features two teams from the NFC North. One is fighting for its playoff life, and the other is looking to spoil its division rival's hopes. 

The Detroit Lions are 7-6 entering their Week 15 matchup with the Chicago Bears, which puts them a game back of the Falcons for the No. 6 seed in the NFC. The Seattle Seahawks are also ahead of Detroit, however, so the Lions will likely need to not only win out through the rest of the regular season, but get some help along the way, if they want to get into the playoffs. 

Chicago, with its 4-9 record, has already been eliminated from contention, but has emerged as a surprisingly frisky squad over the last few weeks. The Bears lost five games in a row before finally getting a win over the Bengals last week, but only one of those losses was by more than one possession.

Can they manage to make it two wins in a row and ruin the Lions' playoff hopes at the same time? We'll find out Saturday afternoon.
