STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES — Lions have won six straight against Bears. … Lions could be without two key defensive players in lineman Ezekiel Ansah (left ankle) and linebacker DeAndre Levy (quadriceps). Ansah missed last week’s game; Levy has sat out past two. … QB Matthew Stafford ranks third in NFL in yards passing (985) and is tied for third in touchdown throws with seven. … Since 2015, Theo Riddick leads NFL RBs in catches (96) and receiving yards (827). … WR Marvin Jones, NFL’s leading receiver, had career-high 205 yards and two TDs last week. … DE Kerry Hyder, tied for second in league with four sacks, has at least one in each game. … Bears, 0-3 for second time in as many seasons under coach John Fox, trying to avoid first 0-4 start since 2000 team. … QB Jay Cutler sat out last week’s game because of sprained right thumb. Brian Hoyer, starting in his place, threw for 317 yards. … Bears signed former Lions RB Joique Bell on Tuesday with Jeremy Langford (ankle) and Ka’Deem Carey (hamstring) banged-up. … WR Kevin White had career-high six catches for 62 yards last week. White missed all of rookie season with injury. … TE Zach Miller had 78 yards receiving and two TDs — his third career multi-TD game. Fantasy Tip: Jones could be in for another big game going against a defense that is short-handed up front and in the secondary.
