Bears Vs. Lions LIVE UPDATES: Monday Night Football Features Matthew Stafford, Calvin Johnson

With the Detroit Lions hosting the NFC North rival Bears in a Monday Night Football matchup and the Tigers playing the second game of the American League Championship Series down in Texas, it's the biggest sporting night in the Motor City in years.

Lions And Tigers And Bears. Oh, my.

The Lions enter tonight's matchup as the league's surprise undefeated squad. Needing stunning comebacks week after week, the Lions may not have been dominant until this point. But they have certainly been captivating. Looking for their first 5-0 start since they went 6-0 in 1956, the Lions are looking to get where the Bears have recently been. Chicago posted an 11-5 record last season and hosted the NFC Championship Game. If Detroit can manage to slow down Bears running back Matt Forte then they'll be on their way toward bringing another high-profile came to Detroit.

Stay tuned here for live updates throughout the game and tweet to @HuffPostSports to join in the conversation.

Cutler gets snap off with one second remaining, he decides to drop to pass as everyone sort of hesitates as game it's really over. But Cutler hits Hurd a few yards from endzone. WR turns up toward goal line and Suh consumes him. That had to hurt.
