Game Recap: Bears come from behind for Thanksgiving win in Detroit

Behind Enemy Lines 5 questions with Lions Wire

Detroit hosted Chicago on Thanksgiving past year as well, with the Bears taking a 23-16 win.

Who is David Blough, anyway?

Blough joins elite company this season: He is one of four quarterbacks to throw for at least 130 yards and two touchdowns in a quarter, according to the Detroit Lions.

The team was driving down the field as the game ended, but a sack on third down left the Lions with 4th and 22 with 36 seconds left.

Blough, the first player to start at quarterback as an undrafted rookie for the Lions, excluding the strike year of 1987 - both Matthew Stafford (back) and Jeff Driskel (hamstring) were dealing with injuries - completed 22 of 38 passes for 288 yards with two touchdowns.

Two plays later, and after a delay-of-game penalty, Trubisky threw his third touchdown pass of the day, from 3 yards out to David Montgomery.

Trubisky finished with three touchdowns and 338 passing yards.

Lions fans chanted "MVP" after Blough had completed 4 of 6 passes for 131 yards and two TDs and a 149.3 passer rating on his first two National Football League drives.

Cordarrelle Patterson returned the opening kickoff 57 yards, setting up Trubisky's 10-yard scoring pass to Robinson. The 11-play, 61-yard drive was highlighted by Blough's 34-yard pass to Golladay to the Bears' 14.

Eventually faced with fourth-and-6 from the Lions' 32, the Bears passed up a 50-yard field-goal attempt and kept their offense on the field.

Prater's 25-yard field goal with 3:10 remaining in the half gave the Lions a 10-point advantage.
