Detroit won the game 31-25.

The Lions were down 26-14 with 4:15 left in the game. Bears kicker Cairo Santos hit a 39-yard field goal to go up 26-14. Jared Goff came back and led the Lions on a 6-play, 75-yard drive and scored on a 43-yard touchdown pass to Jameson Williams.

Detroit got the ball back to drive down and get Montgomery into the end zone. It took just over 2 minutes and 73 yards to get the team down near the goal line and allow the running back to score.

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.

Moore had seven catches for 96 yards.
