Bears Light UpThe Hapless Lions For A 48-24 Win

hey won last week after a couple seasons worth of losses, that being the Detroit Lions against the Washington Redskins.Then they came to Chicago today and for the first half kicked the Bears around like red headed step children for 30 minutes.

Well, It took a while as the two teams came to halftime tied at 21 points each, but finally in the second half the Bears did what they had to do to tame the Detroit Lions, doubling their final point output for a 48-24 win in front of 59,757 fans today at Soldier Field, bringing the Bears to a 3-1 record with next week off to nurse some injuries during the bye week.

Great game if you're a Bears fan as I am minus the loss of super returner Devan Hester, although his kick return backup Johnny Knox opened up the floodgates with a 102 yard kickoff return to start the second half, possibly earning himself the full time spot, at least while Hester recovers from his shoulder injury incurred again in the first half of the game.

Matt Forte scores on a 4th quarter run to give the Bears a 41-24 lead.

 CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Sports: "After a see-saw start, the Bears finally took control of the game in the third quarter. Johnny Knox opened it with a 102-yard kickoff return that took all of 12 seconds as the Bears never looked back.

Matt Forte returned to 2008 form with 121 yards rushing on 12 carries and one touchdown. Jay Cutler continued his solid play with 18-of-28 for 141 yards and two touchdowns."

The Bears struggled to manage a 21-21 tie at halftime against the hapless Detroit Lions. More troubling were injuries to two key players.

After the Bears defense spotted Detroit leads of 7-0 and 14-7, the Bears stormed back on the strength of Jay Cutler's arm to take a 21-14 lead in the second quarter. The Lions came back and tied it late in the second quarter on a 3-yard run by Kevin Smith.

Cutler hit Kellen Davis with a 2-yard scoring early in the second to tie it at 14. Then, after a Detroit turnover gave the Bears the ball deep in Lions' territory, Cutler found Greg Olsen from one-yard out to put the Bears on top 21-14. Originally, the Bears had kicked a field goal, but a Detroit penalty extended the drive and the Bears capitalized. more
