The Lions are 5-0 for the first time since 1956 and continued their second half dominance by outscoring the Bears 17-3 in the third and fourth quarters. Matt Stafford showed that he is human with a horrible forced pass that was intercepted at the end of the first half, but Jahvid Best exploded for 163 yards including an 88-yard TD run and another 43-yarder. It was Best's first 100-yard game and it was done on only 12 carries. The Lions have a surprisingly tough game up next against a 4-1 San Francisco team. —Tony Markovich
