The Detroit Lions pulled off an impressive 31-26 victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday afternoon, marking their third straight win and an 8-2 season record. This achievement gave the franchise a commanding lead in the NFC North and is the first time the Lions have had an 8-2 record since 1962.
Jared Goff initially struggled, throwing three interceptions early in the game, but 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 8-2 record on the season. With their next game against Green Bay Packers on Thanksgiving Day, they are now on pace to potentially claim their first divisional title in three decades.
