The Detroit Lions picked up their first win of the season over a Chicago Bears team that could not complete a comeback this time out even though they had a number of opportunities to do so inside the twenty.
“We’ve got to get better in the red zone,” quarterback Jay Cutler said.
The Lions were led by Matt Stafford (27-42 for 405 yards, four TD’s and an int) and Calvin Johnson who caught six passes for 166 yards and a TD.
Jay Culter led the Bears with 26-41 passing for 353 yards and a touchdown and Alshon Jeffery caught eight passes for 147 yards and a TD.

Last season, after a dismal 5-11 season, all focus for the Chicago Bears franchise was put into rebuilding and drafting good players to help get you back to being a formidable opponent. They did just that and drafted West Virginia Wide Receiver Kevin White with the 7th overall selection. After suffering a stress fracture in his left shin, White may have to undergo surgery that will keep him out for the season if not much longer.
“It gives other guys opportunities,” Bears head coach John Fox said, per ESPN’s Jeff Dickerson. “We’ll have a next-man up approach whether it’s here, in the season, or in the postseason. You keep 53 men on the roster and you keep them for a reason, because you think they can play. It’s an opportunity for guys to step up. We’ll always look to improve our roster. That will not change. We’ll see who steps up.”
The Bears will travel to Indianapolis to face the Colts on Saturday. Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to get yours today!
