The Detroit Lions are on a winning streak, with their impressive 31-26 victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday afternoon. This is their third straight win and an 8-2 season record, giving them the lead in the NFC North. This feat marks the first time the Lions have gone 8-2 since 1962, and they are now poised to win their first division title in three decades.
Jared Goff struggled initially, throwing three interceptions early in the game. However, he was able to rally the team from a 12-point deficit in the fourth quarter with a successful 32-yard touchdown pass to Jameson Williams and a well-executed two-point conversion. A one-yard touchdown run by David Montgomery also helped close out the game for the Lions.
The Bears had Justin Fields back but it wasn’t enough to secure victory over the rampaging Lions. Fields went 16-of-23 for 169 yards with a touchdown and a team-leading 104 rushing yards. Despite Goff’s three interceptions, he finished with 236 passing yards and two touchdowns to lead his team to victory.
With this win, the Lions are now in command of their division and will face their biggest test yet as they prepare for their next game against Green Bay Packers on Thanksgiving Day.
