Amid a rocky start to the day, Jared Goff guided the Detroit Lions to a stunning 31-26 victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday afternoon. This impressive achievement marks the Lions’ third consecutive win and an 8-2 record, giving them a commanding lead in the NFC North. It’s the first time since 1962 that the Lions have achieved an 8-2 record.
Goff initially struggled, throwing three interceptions early in the game. However, he led his team out of a 12-point deficit in the fourth quarter 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. The win was sealed when the Lions forced a safety to end 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 their rushing efforts with 104 yards. However, it wasn’t enough to secure victory over the surging Lions.
Despite Goff’s three interceptions, he finished with an impressive 236 passing yards and two touchdowns, bringing the Lions’ record to an impressive 8-2 this season. With their current winning streak and pace, they are now positioned to potentially claim their first divisional title in three decades as they face off against Green Bay Packers on Thanksgiving Day in their next game.
