By the Numbers: Bears vs. Lions


Takeaways by the Bears

With three interceptions by the defense and a fumble recovery on special teams, the Bears recorded a season high in takeaways. Sunday marks just the third time in Lions quarterback Jared Goff’s 8-year career that he threw three or more picks, with the last time being Sept. 29, 2019.

On Detroit’s first two possessions, rookie cornerback Tyrique Stevenson grabbed his first career interception then linebacker T.J. Edwards recorded his third career INT and first with the Bears.

In the third quarter, Stevenson forced a fumble on a Lions kickoff return and linebacker DeMarquis Gates recovered it, which led to a Bears touchdown. Linebacker Tremaine Edmunds ended Detroit’s ensuing drive with another interception — his second of the season — which came off a tipped ball by defensive tackle Gervon Dexter Sr.


Points scored by Detroit in under three minutes

While the Bears carried a two-possession lead into the final 4:15 of the game, the Lions came alive to score back-to-back touchdowns and regain the lead.

A safety on the Bears’ final drive sealed the comeback.


Career receiving yards by DJ Moore

The Bears star receiver hit a new milestone against the Lions, surpassing 6,000 career receiving yards and reaching 800 this season. Moore is the first player drafted in 2018 or later to reach the 6,000 yard mark.

Moore caught seven of his nine targets for 96 yards, including a 39-yard touchdown pass from Fields in the third quarter. Moore now sits at 6,090 career receiving yards.


Rushing yards by Lions

For the first time since Week 3 against the Chiefs, the Bears defense allowed over 100 rushing yards. In the last seven games, Bears opponents have averaged just 56.4 yards on the ground.

Lions’ running back David Montgomery led the attack, recording 76 yards on 12 carries and a touchdown. Jahmyr Gibbs added 36 yards on eight carries and a score.


Offensive possessions of 10 or more plays

For the majority of the game, the Bears offense was in control, orchestrating four drives that had at least 10 plays.

The Bears dominated time of possession – the offense was on the field for 40:24.
