DThe Tigers will be flying to San Francisco at noon today to get ready for tomorrow night’s World Series Game One against the Giants, who won the NLCS last night by blanking the Cardinals 9-to-0. The Lions will be kicking themselves for giving this one away, with two fumbles and an interception in the red zone and they also muffed a punt which led to a Bear’s field goal.
The loss is a big blow for Detroit’s chances to compete in the NFC North as their record is now 2-and-4 while first place Chicago improved to 5-and-1 with their fourth straight win following their bye week. The Lions also lost veteran receiver Nate Burleson for the season after he suffered a broken leg in the third quarter.
Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford says the whole team needs to be accountable for their actions. The Lions are back in action Sunday at home against the Seattle Seahawks. One other note from the NFC North. Green Bay Packers safety Charles Woodson suffered a broken collarbone during Sunday's victory over the St. Louis Rams and the former University of Michigan Heisman Trophy winner will be out
