CHICAGO (AP) — Rookie Justin Fields brushed off a nightmarish first start, and the Chicago Bears bounced back from one of the worst offensive performances the NFL has seen to beat the winless Detroit Lions 24-14.
Fields and the Bears were in much better form coming off a brutal loss at Cleveland last week.
They rang up 373 yards after being held by the Browns to 47, the ninth-lowest total in league history.
Fields completed 11 of 17 passes for 209 yards and an interception in his second consecutive start with Andy Dalton sidelined because of a bone bruise in his left knee.
David Montgomery ran for 106 yards and two touchdowns before leaving with a knee injury.
Detroit’s Jared Goff was 24 of 38 for 299 yards and two TDs.
