Lions host Bears in rare Saturday game

Bears rookie tight end Adam Shaheen is inactive for Saturday's game against the Lions at Ford Field. However, the Bears are feisty and the Lions are still alive for the postseason.

The Lions (7-6) held on for a 24-21 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 14, and now find themselves two games behind the Atlanta Falcons for the final wild card spot.

Matthew Stafford connected with TJ Jones to help Detroit establish a 13-0 lead.
