In a thrilling comeback, Jared Goff led the Detroit Lions to a 31-26 victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday afternoon, securing their third straight win and an impressive 8-2 season record. This achievement is a testament to the resilience and determination of the Lions franchise and places them in a commanding lead in the NFC North.
Despite an early stumble, with Goff throwing three interceptions in the first half, he was able to rally his team and pull 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 slim advantage. The game was sealed when the Lions forced a safety in the final moments, securing their victory with a five-point margin.
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 overcome the surging Lions.
Goff’s three interceptions did not deter him from finishing with an impressive 236 passing yards and two touchdowns on Sunday afternoon. With this win, the Lions are now on track to potentially claim their first divisional title in three decades. Next up for Detroit is a matchup against Green Bay Packers on Thanksgiving Day.
