The Detroit Lions jumped out to a big lead and held on, finally beating the Chicago Bears 40-32 at Ford Field. It was 40-16 early in the fourth quarter before Chicago rallied against a prevent defense.
This is a victory to savor for Lions fans. Chicago had won nine of the last 10 meetings with Detroit, and Jay Cutler had been outstanding in many of those efforts. Detroit forced four turnovers, including three interceptions of Cutler.
