    Coming in to today's game the Bears with a 3-0 record and Lions with a 3-0 record, you knew there was going to be a good game. However, what we saw was not what we expected. Hold old on to your seats fans as we take you back on this magical sloppy game!

    The Bears won the coin toss and elected to kick. Lions game planned to try and pass the ball more this game which was exactly what the Bears had hoped for. With Stafford's 2nd pass of the game he was picked off. Bears then take control from their own 45 yard line and didn't take very long to put up 7.

    Lions 2nd drive was just as bad. Stafford's control was just not on point. As Stafford throws his 2nd Interception of the game and 4th of the season Quickly the Bears drive down the field scoring again going up 14-0. Lions begin to worry at this point. Offense has got to get something going.

    3rd Series for the Lions comes down to a very questionable call to either run or pass, they choose to run. They chose right keeping the drive alive getting down the field, but not getting what they hoped for having to settle for a Field goal and only get 3 points out of the drive. Bears lead 14-3.

    Lions kick off to Bears, and dangerous returner Devin Hester takes it 98 yards for a touchdown, taking the wind out of the sails for the Lions. Bears on top 21-3.

    Lions 4th Series driving down the field quickly before the half and end up getting stopped once again having to settle for 3 again. 21-6 Bears

    Bears get the ball with a little under 2 min left before Halftime. Hurry down field, running several different plays. They find one formation they like get a big 30 yard gain. Run no huddle, and BOOM!!! TOUCHDOWN!!! Bears lead 28-6


    Lions defense came out and stepped up big time. Stuffing the 1st down run then, 2nd down, Play Action pass Cutler drops back looking for Marshall but the pass is intercepted by Linebacker Ashlee Palmer (which makes 3rd on the season).

    That's the momentum swing the Lions were needing. As Stafford would hook up with Reggie Bush for a touchdown pass. And Lions would convert on the 2 point conversion. Making the Score 28-14.
    The Lions seem to be gaining ground.

    Bears would score again on another deep pass making the score 31-14.

    Lions have got to gain ground, and they are running out of time.

    Lions score drive down the field and score on a Reggie Bush 8 yard run. Bears lead 31-21

    Lions then force another turnover getting a big interception by Glover Quinn, which would set up Stafford and the Offense to drive down the field again and settle for a Field Goal pushing the score to 31-24 Bears.

    Lions would kick off, and Defense would have to step up big with only about 4 min left in the 4th Qt. The Bears would get stopped on a 1st down run. Then on 2nd down Cutler drops back to pass and Linebacker Stephen Tullock comes up huge with a big time with a sack with a loss of 7 yards. Then Rookie Cornerback Nieko Thorpe came up big with another sack pinning the Bears deep into there own territory. They would be force to punt and have to make one more stop.

    Stafford would come out looking for major help! Man would he get it. Rookie Wide Receiver Corey Fullen would step up big, along with Cameron Morrah, and Calvin Johnson, and Tony Scheffler.

    As the Final drive would pay off for the Lions as they would score again to tie the game 31-31 with less than a minute left.


    Bears lose coin toss. Lions receive.

    Lions get 3 huge rushing plays from Bush and Rookie Le'Veon Bell. Bell having the biggest play of the game breaking loose for a 33 yard gain!

    Very next play from the Lions 12 yard line. Touchdown pass Stafford to Pettigrew!

    LIONS WIN!!!!!!!!!

    Great Game Grey!!! Cant wait for the next match up!

    (btw-this was to the best of my memory, I could be wrong on some things!)
