The Detroit Lions have won their third straight game, beating the Chicago Bears 31-26 on Sunday afternoon. This victory has put the Lions in a commanding lead of 8-2 in the NFC North and marks the first time since 1962 that they have had an 8-2 record.
Jared Goff struggled early in the game, throwing three interceptions. However, he was able to rally and lead the team out of a 12-point deficit in the fourth quarter. A successful 32-yard touchdown pass to Jameson Williams, followed by a 1-yard touchdown run by David Montgomery and a well-executed two-point conversion, gave the Lions a three-point lead. The win was sealed when the Lions forced a safety to end the game with a five-point victory.
Justin Fields made his return with the Bears, going 16-of-23 for 169 yards with a touchdown and leading the team in rushing with 104 yards. However, it was not enough to secure a win over the surging Lions.
Despite Goff’s three interceptions, he finished with 236 passing yards and two touchdowns to bring the Lions’ season record to 8-2. With this victory, they are now on pace to potentially claim their first divisional title in three decades. The next game for the Lions will be against Green Bay Packers on Thanksgiving day.
