That's what we came here to do. Very, very talented guy, very smart, very good leader. "Everybody has injuries and unfortunately it's part of the business", said Hoyer, who threw for 317 yards and two second-half touchdowns in the loss to the Cowboys last Sunday. Golden Tate contributed 40 yards in four receptions while Theo Riddick added 39 yards.
Prediction: Lions 24, Bears 14. On the defense, Detroit is yielding 28.3 points and 379.0 yards per game against the opponents.
Stafford was 23 of 36 for 213 yards.
"Yeah, we just did not play well", he said. There was no rhythm to it.
While the Bears did manage to win behind Hoyer's two TD passes and Howard's solid game on the ground, the fact that they only managed 17 points against an average-at-best Lions defense is still troubling. The return made the game look closer than it was, but in no way alleviates the sting of an unfathomable loss.
The Lions got the ball to start the last 30 minutes and quickly found the gear they had missed in the first half. So I was getting ready to run away. "The receivers had their blocks on the edge, so that made my job pretty easy". Although his return to the contest is questionable, he was not seen on the sideline for the start of the second half.
Zach Miller caught 3-of-3 targets for 31 yards and one touchdown in the Bears' Week 4 win over the Lions.
Chicago was leading 17-6 when Andre Roberts returned a punt 85 yards for a touchdown.
Believe it or not, more than half of Stafford's passing yards last week fell into the hands of wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr.
Notre Dame drops to 1-2 after falling to Michigan State

"There were too many penalties and miscommunication", Caldwell said.
"I probably was a little bit too patient past year".
Moments later, Bears linebacker Sam Acho recovered an onside kick to squash the comeback effort.
-I'm not sure how much of this is about play-calling or Brian Hoyer's inability/reluctance to throw the ball down the field, but Jeffery only putting up three catches for 46 yards is not great for the Bears' offense. Hoyer scrambled to his right and hit Royal, who snared the high through with cornerback Nevin Lawson on his back.
Fox raised eyebrows Monday when he refused to anoint Jay Cutler the starter when his thumb injury heals. "But an outstanding catch by Eddie, as well".
The Bears defense had a great goal-line stand against the Lions in the 3rd quarter, holding Detroit to only a field goal after marching downfield nearly unchallenged.
"Playing like this and losing isn't a lot of fun", Stafford said. "We've just got to do better". "Too many mistakes, myself included".
The Detroit Lions were supposed to get back to.500 against a bad, banged-up Chicago Bears on Sunday at Soldier Field. Ebron appeared to twist his leg in a pile as he tried to block during a running play. They are allowing 27.7 points per game through three games and have shown no ability to get to the quarterback.
The three-year veteran walked off the field under his own power.
