THREE MOMENTS THAT MATTERED
1. After forcing a fumble to set up a field goal just before halftime, the Bears were primed to cut into their 13-3 deficit to start the second half. Instead, quarterback Mitchell Trubisky was picked off by Darius Slay on the second play of the third quarter, and the Lions then quickly extended their advantage to 20-3.
2. Sam Acho and Akiem Hicks had a chance to bring down Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford on 3rd-and-18, but the veteran escaped the pressure by rolling to the right and throwing up a jump ball to Marvin Jones, who outjumped Eddie Jackson for a 58-yard reception. The big play set up T.J. Jones' 3-yard touchdown reception a short time later to make it 13-0 Detroit with 6:56 left in the first half.
3. Moments after T.J. Jones gave his team a two-score lead, rookie return man Tarik Cohen took the ensuing kickoff back 90 yards to set the Bears up at Detroit's 14-yard line. DeAndre Houston-Carson was flagged for holding, however, and the ball came all the way back to Chicago's 10-yard line.
