NFL Schedule 2012: Packers, Bears, Lions All Face Tough Tests

The Chicago Bears aren't the only NFC North team facing a challenge in Week 2, as the Detroit Lions will be headed to San Francisco to take on the 49ers -- the same 49ers that marched into Lambeau Field and gave the Packers a Week 1 loss.

The Bears, of course, will be looking to do the same exact thing to the Packers on Thursday night, and give the Packers an 0-2 start in the process. A Chicago win on Thursday would put the Bears two full games ahead of Green Bay, and give Green Bay an 0-1 record inside the NFC North as well as an 0-2 mark in the NFC.

Minnesota, who is also 1-0, will be headed to Indianapolis to take on Andrew Luck and the rebuilding Colts, so it's quite plausible that the Vikings could be 2-0 after this week.

Detroit's game will be televised in primetime on Sunday night, so Bears fans will be able to get a good look at one of their rival teams.

Be sure to head over to and check out all the Week 2 action. For everything Chicago Bears, check out Windy City Gridiron.
