The Detroit Lions will look to stay in control of the NFC North when they host the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

Kickoff for the Week 14 game is scheduled for 1 p.m. Eastern from Ford Field and it will be televised by CBS. In the booth will be play-by-play announcer Spero Dedes and analyst Solomon Wilcots.

The Lions (8-4) fell the Bears (3-9) in Week 4, but have since won 7 of 8 games, including 4 straight. Quarterback Matthew Stafford has thrown just one interception over the 8 games to go with 14 touchdowns. Detroit has never won the NFC North but now holds a two-game lead over the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers with four games left on the schedule.

Chicago will miss the playoffs for the sixth consecutive season.

This game would normally be aired on FOX because the visiting team (in this case the Bears) is from the NFC. But the NFL moved the Packers-Seahawks game to 4:25 p.m. ET which put three late games airing on FOX. So the league plucked the Lions-Bears game from FOX to CBS.

Here are the details for the Lions-Bears game:
