Lions force Bears out of comfort zone on ground in 20-10 win

DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Lions came up with a scheme to shut down Chicago's running game and force Bears rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky to throw a lot.

The plan worked perfectly.

Chicago averaged less than 3 yards a carry and Trubisky threw three interceptions Saturday night, setting the Lions up for a 20-10 win that keeps them in the playoff picture.
