(SportsNetwork.com) - The Detroit Lions are still in the mix to be the No. 1 seed in the NFC heading into the postseason. They have already clinched a playoff spot. Detroit takes another step toward its first-ever NFC North crown, as it goes after a fourth straight win in a road test against the hapless Chicago Bears at Soldier Field. The Lions secured their second playoff spot in four years when Philadelphia lost to Washington on Saturday. The Lions could also clinch their first division crown in 21 years with a win coupled with a Green Bay loss to Tampa Bay. Its right there in front of us, defensive end Jason Jones said. Everything broke right for the Lions in Week 15. First, the Buffalo Bills pulled off an upset of the Packers, then Matt Praters late field goal helped the Lions pull out a 16-14 victory over the Minnesota Vikings to move them into a tie atop the division with the Packers. Detroit actually holds the tiebreaker over Green Bay at the moment given its win over the Packers earlier in the year. The Lions will visit Lambeau Field in Week 17, likely with a chance at securing their first division title since winning the NFC Central in 1993. Were not taking any game for granted, any play for granted, said Matt Stafford, who threw for a season-low 153 yards in the win over the Vikings. Its not going to be pristine every time, but were going to fight tooth and nail for wins and that showed up again today. Its the first time the Lions reached 10 wins in the first 14 games of the season since the Lions started 10-4 in 1991. Chicago, meanwhile, is no such playoff position after a lifeless, 31-15, shellacking at the hands of the New Orleans Saints on Monday. And now the team is in complete disarray. Shortly after the loss reports started to circulate that head coach Marc Trestman may be out of a job at the end of the season. Then, on Wednesday it leaked that the Bears would bench starting quarterback Jay Cutler in favor of Jimmy Clausen, who hasnt started a game since 2010. The bottom line is that this is a business based on winning and losing, Trestman said. We cant sugarcoat it. We are disappointed that were not playing well enough to win. Cutler turned in another subpar performance against the Saints as he threw for just 194 yards on 17-of-31 passing with two touchdown passes and three interceptions for the Bears, who have dropped their last three games. Overall, I just feel that we need passion to come from certain places and I dont think the passion is always there all the time, Bears tight end Martellus Bennett said. The Lions have won three straight over the Bears including a Thanksgiving Day triumph when Stafford threw for 390 yards and two scores. They havent won consecutive contests in Chicago since a six-game run from 1968-73 WHAT TO WATCH FOR Detroit only managed 233 total yards versus the Vikings, but could be in store for a big bounce back this week considering the Bears have given up 35.3 points and 438.0 yards over their three-game slide. Chicagos defense has given up a league-high 409 points, 19 more than the Tennessee Titans, who have allowed 390. In fact, theyve given up 251 points in the first half alone. To put that into perspective, three teams havent surrendered that many in 14 full games, led by the Lions with 238 and followed by the Seahawks (242) and Cardinals (244). Speaking of the Lions second-ranked defense, they havent allowed more than 17 points in three straight games and five of the last six. That doesnt figure to change against a Bears team that will go with Clausen, who has completed three of his nine pass attempts this season. Before this season, the former Notre Dame star hadnt appeared in an NFL game since playing 13 for the Carolina Panthers as a rookie after he was taken in the second round of the 2010 draft. Cutler, meanwhile, has started all 14 games in his sixth season for the Bears, completing 66.1 percent of his passes for 3,640 yards, 28 touchdowns and an NFL-high 18 interceptions. He has fumbled 12 times, losing six to lead the league in overall turnovers. Our whole football team isnt where it needs to be, Trestman said. Nobodys happy about it. Jays not happy about it. We all can do better. Even without Cutler the Bears still have some offensive firepower with wide receiver Alshon Jeffery, Bennett and running back Matt Forte. You look at a guy like Alshon Jeffery, safety Glover Quin said. He can make tough catches. He can go deep on you. You look at Bennett. He can move the chains. You look at Forte. Hes a Pro Bowl player. Hes a big-time running back. You look at all those things. They can throw it. They can catch it. They can run it. OVERALL ANALYSIS Its all there for the Lions taking, as they can finished anywhere between the No. 1 seed in the NFC to No. 6 in the conference. As for the Bears, well, what can you say. They looked like a team that had packed it in last week. Now, theyll have a quarterback who hasnt started a game in four years. Its getting ugly in Chicago and it figures to be worse after Sunday.

Russian left-hander Ekaterina Makarova, seeded 22nd, leveled the sluggish Polish star Radwanska in 6-3, 6-0 fashion in fourth-round action on the No. 3 Court. Radwanska reached the final here two years ago, but lost to Serena Williams. The sixth-seeded Czech lefty Kvitova blew past Chinese Peng Shuai 6-3, 6-2 to reach the round of eight here for a fifth year in a row. Kvitova was the Wimbledon champ in 2011 and reached the semifinals the year before that. Her quarterfinal opponent will be surprise fellow Czech Barbora Zahlavova Strycova. Former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki exited the draw, losing 6-2, 7-5 to the unseeded Zahlavova Strycova on Day 7. Zahlavova Strycova finished with a lopsided 31-11 advantage in winners and advanced to her first Grand Slam quarterfinal on her sixth match point. She had not taken a set in three previous meetings with her 16th-seeded Danish counterpart. The 43-ranked Zahlavova Strycova has now beaten seeded players in three consecutive matches. Wozniacki has never made it past the fourth round at the All England Club. Lucie Safarova beat Tereza Smitkova 6-0, 6-2 in an all-Czech fourth-round matchup. The 23rd-seeded Safarova will meet Makarova in the quarterfinals. Czech women went 3-1 on Monday, with the only loss coming in the all-Czech Safarova-Smitkova affair, and this marks the first time that three Czech women have reached the quarterfinals at Wimbledon..dddddddddddd In some third-round action on Day 7, 19th-seeded German slugger Sabine Lisicki upset 11th-seeded former world No. 1 Ana Ivanovic 6-4, 3-6, 6-1. Ivanovic captured her first-ever grass-court title a few weeks ago in Birmingham, but has never fared well on the lawns at Wimbledon, having failed to get past the fourth round here now the last seven years. Lisicki, meanwhile, thrives on the grass at the AEC, where she was last years surprise runner-up and reached at least the quarterfinals here in her previous four trips. Up next for the German will be Kazakhstans Yaroslava Shvedova, who moved on when American Madison Keys pulled out of their third-round match because of a left thigh injury. The two were scheduled to complete their match on Monday after Shvedova took the first set 7-6 (9-7) and things were tied at 6-6 in the second set before darkness forced the suspension of play on Saturday. Keys exit leaves the womens draw without any Americans, and for the first time since 1911, there are no Americans, male of female, playing in the fourth round at Wimbledon. Two quarterfinals will be staged on Tuesday, as Kvitova will tangle with Zahlavova Strycova and Makarova will battle Safarova. And the fourth round is scheduled to conclude on Tuesday, as third-seeded French Open runner-up Simona Halep will face Kazakhstans Zarina Diyas, fifth- seeded French Open champ Maria Sharapova will battle ninth-seeded German Angelique Kerber and Lisicki will take on Shvedova. Sharapova captured her lone Wimbledon title in 2004 and was the 2011 runner-up here to Kvitova.
