Mistakes Cost Bears In Detroit

A bad day for Jay Cutler made for a bad day for the Bears in Detroit.
DETROIT-A bad day for Jay Cutler meant a bad day for the Bears in Detroit. Cutler turned the ball over four times and the Bears lost to the Lions Sunday 40-32. Cutler was intercepted three times. He also fumbled while being sacked in the third quarter. The fumble was returned by Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley for a touchdown.

Cutler did throw two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to rally the Bears from a 41-10 deficit. 

"I've got to give us a better chance of winning," said Cutler after the game. "Three picks it's hard to come back from that, and the fumble return, so I've got to play better."

"You can't have four turnovers on offense and give our defense a short field and expect to be able to stop people," said Bears coach Marc Trestman. "We didnt' do a good job defensively on first and second down stopping the Lions."

Matt Forte rushed for 95 yards on 14 carries. He ripped off a 53 yard touchdown run in the second quarter. That gave the Bears a 10-6 lead. But Lions running back Reggie Bush later answered with an electric 37 yard touchdown run. He finished with 173 yards of total offense.

Alshon Jeffery had a good day for the Bears. He had five receptions for 107 yards and one touchdown.

The Bears offensive line struggled at times with the Lions front four. Cutler was sacked three times.

The Bears did manage to hold Calvin Johnson to only four receptions for 44 yards, but he did score one touchdown.

Both the Bears and Lions are now 3-1.
