Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall watched film of the Lions’ defense on Monday morning, and didn’t like what he saw.

“Kinda disgusting to see the D-line go out of their way to knock our quarterbacks down after every single play,” Marshall said on ESPN1000 AM. “It seems like it was game-planned. It was borderline — You can’t say that it was illegal.”

He described the Lions as the little brother that’s “not better than the big brother in anything,” and vowed to see them in the playoffs.

Bears starting quarterback Jay Cutler, who rushed back from a severe groin injury suffered agains the Washington Redskins, came out of the game with a high ankle sprain that has him “week to week.”
