Bears Double Up the Lions, Move to 3-1

The Detroit Lions came to Chicago looking for their first win streak in over a year and they made a run at it in the first half.  Then the 3rd quarter rolled around and the fact that the Bears are a better team game crashing down them in a big way.  The offense and defense played well enough to win, but the Special Teams won this game.  They manned up in a big way.  Maynard pinned them at the 4 and 2 yard lines in consecutive series.  Johnny Knox and Earl Bennett both had good returning game.  Know ran a kick off back 102 yards for a TD. 

Jay  Cutler had his most pedestrian outing throwing for 141 and 2 TDs, but it was all they needed from him.

The run game had some success though most of it game on two plays, a 61 yard burst to give the Bears their first TD and a 37 yard TD run late in the 4th for 98 total yards.  He ended with 121 yards.

The defense started out playing poorly, but manned up in the 2nd half,. holding the Lions to a few 3 and outs as well as a couple of sacks and takeaways.   The Bears ended with 5 sacks and an Int.

Hopefully, with the bye week Bennett and Hester will be ready and we can see the return of Hunter and Pisa.

Unfortunately, now we need to root for Green Bay to bring the Vikings back to the crowd.
