Bears top Lions, Peterson shines in Debut

The Bears pick up their fifth straight win against Detroit in massive fourth quarter comeback.




Both the Lions and the Bears struggled in the first half, but the air game for Chicago determined the game in the fourth quarter with Mitch Trubisky's three touchdown passes.


Chicago struggled to find rhythm in the first half, settling for a pair of field goals, unable to score in the red zone in the first half, putting the Lions up 13-6.


The Lions entered the four quarter with 17 unanswered points before Trubisky found Jimmy Graham putting the Bears within ten, 23-13.


Trubisky then found third year receiver Javon Wims in the end zone, 23-20 Detroit, with 3 minutes left.


Stafford's pass intended for Marvin Jones Jr, was picked off by Kyle Fuller setting the Bears up for the final score of the game, a 27 yard touchdown for Anthony Miller.


Trubisky finished 20/36 for 242 yards for three touchdowns. On the ground, David Montgomery led with 13 carries for 64 yards. In the air, Miller led with four receptions for 76 yards and a touchdown.


For the Lions, 13-year veteran Adrian Peterson shined in his debut, finishing with 14 carries for 93 yards. The addition of Peterson showcased a new run game threat for Detroit after Peterson signed earlier this week.


Veteran receiver Danny Amendola led with five receptions for 81 yards. Stafford threw 24/42 for 297 yards, with one touchdown and one interception.
