Take a look at some of the notable stats and numbers from the Bears' Week 11 game against the Detroit Lions:


Total yards produced by Justin Fields

Back under center for the first time in four weeks, Fields fueled the Bears offense by totaling 273 yards between the pass and run games.

The third-year pro completed 16 of his 23 pass attempts for 169 yards and a touchdown. Fields finished with a 105.2 rating, his third-best mark this season.

Fields took control of one of the league's top rushing attacks by carrying the ball 18 times for 104 yards.


Career game with 100+ rushing yards for Fields

Fields surpassed 100 yards on the ground for the first time this season, but it marked the fifth time in his career he cracked the 100-yard mark.

His 18 carries tied a career high, which he set against the Falcons nearly a year ago on Nov. 20, 2022.


Takeaways by the Bears

With three interceptions by the defense and a fumble recovery on special teams, the Bears recorded a season high in takeaways. Sunday marks just the third time in Lions quarterback Jared Goff's 8-year career that he threw three or more picks, with the last time being Sept. 29, 2019.

On Detroit's first two possessions, rookie cornerback Tyrique Stevenson grabbed his first career interception then linebacker T.J. Edwards recorded his third career INT and first with the Bears.

In the third quarter, Stevenson forced a fumble on a Lions kickoff return and linebacker DeMarquis Gates recovered it, which led to a Bears touchdown. Linebacker Tremaine Edmunds ended Detroit's ensuing drive with another interception — his second of the season — which came off a tipped ball by defensive tackle Gervon Dexter Sr.


Points scored by Detroit in under three minutes

While the Bears carried a two-possession lead into the final 4:15 of the game, the Lions came alive to score back-to-back touchdowns and regain the lead.

A safety on the Bears' final drive sealed the comeback.


Career receiving yards by DJ Moore

The Bears star receiver hit a new milestone against the Lions, surpassing 6,000 career receiving yards and reaching 800 this season. Moore is the first player drafted in 2018 or later to reach the 6,000 yard mark.

Moore caught seven of his nine targets for 96 yards, including a 39-yard touchdown pass from Fields in the third quarter. Moore now sits at 6,090 career receiving yards.


Rushing yards by Lions

For the first time since Week 3 against the Chiefs, the Bears defense allowed over 100 rushing yards. In the last seven games, Bears opponents have averaged just 56.4 yards on the ground.

Lions' running back David Montgomery led the attack, recording 76 yards on 12 carries and a touchdown. Jahmyr Gibbs added 36 yards on eight carries and a score.


Offensive possessions of 10 or more plays

For the majority of the game, the Bears offense was in control, orchestrating four drives that had at least 10 plays.

The Bears dominated time of possession – the offense was on the field for 40:24.
