Because the Bears were terrible this season, their rivalry with the Lions lacked a certain amount of luster.
Worry not, football fans, thanks to the Smithsonian's National Zoo we have the most compelling Bears vs. Lions matchup of the season.
Without further ado, the visiting team, from the African savannah, the Lions.
And from the mountains of China, Bao Bao the giant panda bear.
Bao Bao seems pretty friendly. Definitely not the kind of Lion to stomp on an opponent.
