Left for dead two weeks ago at 0-3, the Chicago Bears have kept their season alive with two stunning last-30-second victories and now have a chance to get back to .500 when they visit the 0-5 Detroit Lions at Ford Field on Sunday.
Bears quarterback Jay Cutler threw a touchdown pass to Matt Forte very late against the Chiefs last week to cap a comeback from 17-6 down with less than five minutes to play.
The Lions have had no such luck in close games, and were blown out a week ago at home against the Cardinals. Making matters worse, starting quarterback Matthew Stafford was benched as the team committed five turnovers.
Detroit has won the last four meetings between the two teams.
