Montgomery had 76 yards on 12 carries and the score. Jahmyr Gibbs added 36 rushing yards and a touchdown. Goff was 23-of-35 with 236 passing yards, two touchdown passes and three interceptions.
Fields looked like he was going to have the Bears in position for the upset victory. But after the Goff-Williams touchdown, the Bears went 3-and-out and only used 26 seconds of clock before giving the Lions the ball again. The defense then allowed a handful of chunk plays on the final series.
