The Detroit Lions clinched their third straight win and an impressive 8-2 record on Sunday afternoon with a 31-26 victory over the Chicago Bears. Jared Goff, who initially struggled and threw three interceptions early in the game, was able to 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 conclude 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 was able to finish with 236 passing yards and two touchdowns to bring the Lions to an 8-2 record on the season. With the Lions now on pace to potentially claim their first divisional title in three decades, they will face the Green Bay Packers in their next game on Thanksgiving.
