Lions Lead Division

The Lions have taken over first place in the division. Detroit’s 21-19 win in Chicago, along with the Packers loss to the Eagles, puts the Lions (6-3) in sole possession of the top spot in the NFC North. Detroit swept the seasons series with Chicago and won at Soldier Field for the first time since 2007. Matthew Stafford finished 18-of-35 for 219 yards with three touchdowns and an interception. Calvin Johnson 83 yards receiving and two touchdowns. Reggie Bush 105 yards rushing. The Lions will play in Pittsburgh on Sunday.
