Bears Vs. Lions Score Update: Defense Keys 37-6 Advantage

Following a rushing TD from Matt Forte and a punt return for a TD from Devin Hester, the Chicago Bears defense decided to get into the act in the third quarter, as both Major Wright and Charles Tillman returned Matthew Stafford interceptions for TD's. The Chicago defense has pressured Stafford throughout the game, limiting the normally prolific QB to only 218 yards through the air on 45 attempts.


With the defense wreaking havoc throughout the game, the Bears offense hasn't been forced to make many plays. Forte, who scored a TD in the first quarter, has 60 rushing yards on 13 carries. Chicago QB Jay Cutler has only thrown the ball 18 times for 123 yards. However, the role of the offense this game has been to avoid turnovers and control the clock.
