After beating Bears, Lions look to tighten NFC North race

CHICAGO (AP) The Detroit Lions haven't lost a game against the NFC North, and they can really tighten the division race if they win this week.

Matt Prater kicked a tiebreaking 52-yard field goal, Matthew Stafford threw for 299 yards and two touchdowns and the Lions hung on to beat the Chicago Bears 27-24 on Sunday.

That sets up a Thanksgiving matchup at home against NFC North-leading Minnesota that could go a long way toward determining the division champion, though first place won't be on the line. The Lions (6-4) trail the Vikings (8-2) by two games.
