Lions Beat Bears 24-13, First 5-0 Start Since 1956

The Detroit Lions came into their home Monday Night Football game against the division rival Chicago Bears looking to continue their unbeaten run to start the 2011 season, and they do just that behind the rushing of Jahvid Best.

The Detroit Lions haven’t been off to a start like this in over 50 years.  Right now they sit at 5-0 and are tied for first place in their division with the defending Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers.  They beat the Chicago Bears in front of the home crowd last night 24-13, and right now things couldn’t be better for the Lions.

Detroit running back Jahvid Best led the lions to victory with a huge game on the ground.  He had 163 yards and touchdown.  Chicago had no answer for his rush attack.  On the receiving side, Calvin Johnson continues to dominate.  He had 130 yards and a touchdown pass.  That touchdown pass was a 73 yard toss from Matthew Stafford in the early minutes of the first quarter.  It really set the tone for the game.

Chicago linebacker Brian Urlacher wasn’t very happy after the game.  He even bashed his teams defense a little bit, the part of the team he happens to be a big part of.

We’re not playing good. We’re not disciplined. We’re not into our gaps. We’re not physical. I don’t know how many yards that kid had. He probably didn’t even have 10 carries.

-Brian Urlacher

Urlacher is right about one thing, Best didn’t have 10 carries, he had 12.  The Lions look dangerous right now, so teams better beware.  There next game is against the 4-1 San Francisco 49ers, another surprise success story out of the NFL.  Chicago faces another divisional match up against the 1-4 Minnesota Vikings.
