Stafford, Lions try to keep slim playoff hopes alive vs. Bears

A bruised throwing hand didn't prevent Matthew Stafford from keeping the Detroit Lions' playoff hopes alive last weekend.

Stafford still isn't 100 percent but the Lions will need their quarterback to continue carrying a heavy load when they host the NFC North rival Chicago Bears on Saturday.

Stafford completed 36 of his 44 passes for 381 yards in a 24-21 victory at Tampa Bay on Sunday despite the injury he suffered the previous week in Baltimore. With an almost non-existent running game, the Lions don't have much choice but to have Stafford throw on most downs.
