On Sunday afternoon, the Detroit Lions overcame a rough start to the day and defeated the Chicago Bears with an impressive 31-26 victory. This win marked the third straight victory for the Lions and an impressive 8-2 season record.
Jared Goff initially struggled, throwing three interceptions early in the game. However, he 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 finished with 236 passing yards and two touchdowns to bring the Lions to an impressive season record of 8 wins and just 2 losses.
The Detroit Lions are now on pace to potentially claim their first divisional title in three decades as they face off against their next opponent – Green Bay Packers on Thanksgiving Day
