Bears vs. Lions: Live Updates, Score and Highlights for Saturday Afternoon Football

Invalid DateDetroit
Michelle Bruton

Mitchell Trubisky and the 4-10 Chicago Bears traveled to Detroit to take on Matthew Stafford and the 8-6 Lions in the first Saturday game of the 2017 NFL season, and they'll head home with a loss. The Lions defeated the Bears handily, intercepting Trubisky in the Bears' two best opportunities to close the scoring gap. The Lions move one game ahead of the 7-6 Green Bay Packers in the NFC North and hang on to their shot at a wild-card berth for another week. The Bears had already been mathematically eliminated from the postseason.
