On Sunday afternoon, the Detroit Lions defeated the Chicago Bears 31-26, marking their third straight victory and an impressive 8-2 record. Despite a rough start to the day, where Jared Goff threw three interceptions early in the game, he was able to lead the team out of a 12-point deficit in the fourth quarter.
The Lions’ comeback was sealed with 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. 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.
Goff finished with 236 passing yards and two touchdowns to bring the Lions’ season record to 8-2. With their commanding lead in the NFC North and an opportunity to potentially claim their first divisional title in three decades, the Lions will face the Green Bay Packers in their next game on Thanksgiving.
