Matthew Stafford threw for 219 yards and two touchdowns, including an 18-yard scoring strike to Brandon Pettigrew that put the Lions ahead to stay in the third quarter. The Detroit Lions beat the Chicago Bears 24-13 last night to improve to 5-0 for the first time in 55 years. Jahvid Best added to the offensive production as he ran for 163 yards on just 12 carries, much of it coming on his 88-yard scoring run that put the Lions ahead by 11 in the third period. The Lions’ 5-0 record puts them in company with the defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers as the NFL’s only remaining unbeaten teams. The Packers, rivals of the Lions in the NFC North, also are 5-0.

The atmosphere at Ford Field was more like a rock festival than a football game, with a crowd of 67,861, the largest for a Lions game since the stadium in downtown Detroit opened in 2002.
