Nothing was going right for the Lions Sunday against the Bears.
Not for Jared Goff, who threw three interceptions for the first time since 2019; Not for a rushing game that had been turning heads across the league; And certainly not for the defense, who couldn’t contain Justin Fields.
The Lions took a 14-10 lead into halftime, but Chicago scored on its first four possessions of the second half, eating up loads of clock along the way.
In his first game back after a three-week absence, Fields gashed the Lions on the ground with 104 yards and put Chicago in front with a 39-yard touchdown pass to DJ Moore just three plays after forcing a fumble on a kick return.
But then the Lions flipped a switch.
Trailing by 12, things were looking bleak until Detroit cut the deficit to 26-21 with under 3:00 to go in the game after flying 75 yards down the field in six plays, a drive capped off by a 32-yard touchdown pass to Jameson Williams.
The defense locked down on the next drive, forcing a quick three-and-out. Goff then methodically led a 73-yard drive that culminated with a one-yard David Montgomery run to take the lead over his former team.
Aidan Hutchinson put the icing on the cake with a strip of Fields, leading to a safety as the ball went out of the back of the end zone.
The comeback win pushes the Lions to 8-2 on the year, their best start to a season since 1962.
