The Lions are 4-11 heading into their season finale vs. the Bears, so there aren’t many bright spots. But these are three:

1. Calvin Johnson – He deserves far better than playing on this awful team.

2. Chris Houston – A very good cover cornerback who, for the most part, has done well when left alone on an island against some of the NFL’s best receivers.

3. Joique Bell – For an undrafted free agent who has bounced around, Bell has become a remarkably effective running back. Neither that big nor fast, he nonetheless has a knack for running through tackles inside, and making defenders miss in the open field
