CHICAGO, IL (WTVB) - Week 6 in the NFL starts tonight as the winless New York Giants take on the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field. The Bears are also scuffling a bit, dropping two straight games after a 3-0 start.
Darris McCord, a Detroit native and a member of the Detroit Lions' "Fearsome Foursome" died Wednesday. He was 80. McCord was selected in the third round by Detroit in the 1955 draft. He spent his entire NFL career with the Lions, missing only two of a possible 170 games from 1955-67. McCord earned the lone Pro Bowl trip of his career at defensive tackle on Detroit's 1957 championship squad.
