Bears Vs. Lions Score Update: Bears Lead 20-6 At Halftime

After jumping out to a 10-0 in the opening quarter, the Chicago Bears used a special teams TD and some key defensive stops to extend their lead to 20-6 at halftime.

As he has done throughout his career, Devin Hester provided a highlight reel TD return to give the Bears a 17-0 lead. Hester, who missed the entire week of practice with an ankle injury, now has 12 punt return TD's in his career. Along with the return from Hester, Robbie Gould connected on his second FG of the day.

The Bears defense has done an excellent job preventing the Lions from getting into an offensive rhythm. Lions QB Matthew Stafford has completed only 14/28, while Calvin Johnson has been limited to five catches for 37 yards. Stafford has already been sacked twice and has faced constant pressure from the Bears defense.
