The Detroit Lions improved to 11-4 yesterday by beating the Chicago Bears 20-14 in Chicago. With one game left to play, Detroit has secured a place in the NFL playoffs for the first time in three years. That last game will be next Sunday at Green Bay, the team they’re tied with for first place in the NFC North, so a lot will be at stake.
Today on the show, Al discusses the Michigan State men's basketball team's win in the opening exhibition game against Master's College, as Russell Byrd made his return to Michigan State.

A wild weekend in Michigan sports comes to an end, as University of Michigan and Detroit Lions football both suffered close loses and the Detroit Tigers were eliminated from the playoffs.
