The Detroit Lions continued their impressive run with a 31-26 victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday afternoon. Jared Goff, despite an initial rough start and throwing three interceptions early in the game, led the team to a commanding lead in the NFC North. This achievement marks the franchise’s first time having an 8-2 record since 1962 and solidifies their position as division leaders.
Justin Fields made his return for 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’ season record to 8-2. With their next game against the Green Bay Packers on Thanksgiving, they are now on pace to potentially claim their first divisional title in three decades.
