    LOL</p>

    Bears kept it close</p>

    30-27 with :52 left, and Detroit returns the kick 99 yards for a TD to seal it.</p>

    DETROIT (Ticker) - It took the Detroit Lions three quarters toerupt - and once they did, there was no stopping them.

    Detroit scored five touchdowns in the fourth quarter to defeatthe Chicago Bears, 37-27, on Sunday.


    Jon Kitna's 15-yard touchdown pass to Troy Walters capped aflurry of three Detroit touchdowns in the first four minutes ofthe fourth quarter. It was originally ruled that Walters, whocaught the ball in the corner of the end zone, was out-of-bounds- but Detroit challenged the call and it was overturned.

    The Lions scored again on a five-yard run by Kevin Jones with3:34 left in the game.


    Devin Hester's 97-yard kickoff return for a touchdown came aftercornerback Keith Smith had given the Lions a 17-13 lead with a64-yard interception return. It was the second touchdown returnof the season for Hester, who set an NFL record with sixtouchdown returns in 2006.


    The Lions returned the favor in the game's waning moments, whenCasey Fitzsimmons returned the Bears' onside kick 41 yards forthe final score.


    Detroit cut Chicago's lead to 13-10 on the first play of thefourth quarter when Kitna passed four yards to Shaun McDonald inthe corner of the end zone.


    Kitna finished 20-of-24 for 247 yards and two touchdowns.

    Chicago quarterback Brian Griese had his troubles in his firststart since Bears coach Lovie Smith benched Rex Grossman onWednesday.


    Griese finished 34-of-52 for 286 yards and two touchdowns, buthe also threw three interceptions.


    Chicago, which led 7-3 at halftime, got a pair of third-quarterfield goals from Robbie Gould. The first, a 49-yarder, was setup by Hester's 19-yard punt return, and his second, from 41yards, was set up by a 31-yard punt return by Hester.

    Detroit opened the scoring with a 49-yard field goal by JasonHanson. It was set up when Shaun Rogers blocked Gould's 52-yardfield goal attempt. Kenoy Kennedy picked up the loose ball andreturned it 31 yards. A 15-yard personal foul penalty wastacked on to give Detroit the ball on the Chicago 27, but theLions were unable to get a first down.


    Chicago's only touchdown of the first half was also set up by ablocked field goal. Danieal Manning blocked Hanson's 39-yardattempt, and the Bears marched 71 yards in nine plays withGriese hitting Muhsin Muhammad for a 15-yard touchdown score.

    Chicago threatened again just before the first half ended, butGriese's pass was intercepted at the goal line by Detroitcornerback Fernando Bryant.


    The Bears were missing several key defensive players, includinglinebacker Lance Briggs, safety Adam Archuleta and startingcornerbacks Charles Tillman and Nathan Vasher, but they stillmanaged to hold the Lions to 97 total yards in the first half.

    Detroit played without rookie wide receiver Calvin Johnson,starting right guard Damien Woody and defensive end KalimbaEdwards.

    DETROIT (Ticker) - It took the Detroit Lions three quarters toerupt - and once they did, there was no stopping them.

    Detroit scored five touchdowns in the fourth quarter to defeatthe Chicago Bears, 37-27, on Sunday.


    "This game was probably like me - ugly," Lions coach RodMarinelli said. "It was also like me, because it was a fight.Our three wins have all been street fights. I challenged thisteam during the week, and they stepped up."


    The 34 points the Lions scored in the fourth is an NFL recordfor the final quarter.


    Jon Kitna's 15-yard touchdown pass to Troy Walters capped aflurry of three Detroit touchdowns in the first four minutes ofthe fourth quarter. It was originally ruled that Walters, whocaught the ball in the corner of the end zone, was out-of-bounds- but Detroit challenged the call and it was overturned.

    "It was a big challenge," Walters said. "I give credit to thereplay people. They put it up pretty quick because I wasn'tsure if I was in or out. You don't want to waste challengesbecause you need those timeouts. They put it up quick and sawthat it was definitely a touchdown and made the right decision."

    The Lions (3-1) scored again on a five-yard run by Kevin Joneswith 3:34 left in the game.


    "KJ is a great football player," Kitna said. "He's somebodythat we need to be healthy and to participate in our footballteam. With him, we're a better football team than we arewithout him."


    Chicago (1-3) relied on its special teams to keep it in thegame.


    Devin Hester's 97-yard kickoff return for a touchdown came aftercornerback Keith Smith had given the Lions a 17-13 lead with a64-yard interception return. It was the second touchdown returnof the season for Hester, who set an NFL record with sixtouchdown returns in 2006.


    "He's (Hester) a special guy and I had just told Don Muhlbachthat if anybody in this stadium can silence this crowd, it's No.23 and that's what he did," Lions wideout Roy Williams said."We keep going back to Coach Marinelli when he said don't blinkand this team didn't blink."


    The Lions returned the favor in the game's waning moments, whenCasey Fitzsimmons returned the Bears' onside kick 41 yards forthe final score.


    Detroit cut Chicago's lead to 13-10 on the first play of thefourth quarter when Kitna passed four yards to Shaun McDonald inthe corner of the end zone.


    Kitna finished 20-of-24 for 247 yards and two touchdowns.

    Chicago quarterback Brian Griese had his troubles in his firststart since Bears coach Lovie Smith benched Rex Grossman onWednesday.


    Griese finished 34-of-52 for 286 yards and two touchdowns, buthe also threw three interceptions.


    "He wasn't good enough," Smith said bluntly. "The quarterbackhas to protect the football. I never thought of changingquarterbacks."


    Chicago, which led 7-3 at halftime, got a pair of third-quarterfield goals from Robbie Gould. The first, a 49-yarder, was setup by Hester's 19-yard punt return, and his second, from 41yards, was set up by a 31-yard punt return by Hester.

    Detroit opened the scoring with a 49-yard field goal by JasonHanson. It was set up when Shaun Rogers blocked Gould's 52-yardfield goal attempt.


    "It's just something I like doing, I guess," Rogers said of his10th career block.


    Kenoy Kennedy picked up the loose ball and returned it 31 yards.A 15-yard personal foul penalty was tacked on to give Detroitthe ball on the Chicago 27, but the Lions were unable to get afirst down.


    Chicago's only touchdown of the first half was also set up by ablocked field goal. Danieal Manning blocked Hanson's 39-yardattempt, and the Bears marched 71 yards in nine plays withGriese hitting Muhsin Muhammad for a 15-yard touchdown score.

    Chicago threatened again just before the first half ended, butGriese's pass was intercepted at the goal line by Detroitcornerback Fernando Bryant.


    "We didn't get a lot of offense today - running or passing,"Smith said. "There aren't a lot of positive things to talkabout today. The good thing is, we've only played a quarter ofthe season. There's time to change course but we have to changecourse quickly."


    "We are 1-3," Griese said. "You are what your record says youare. (For us) 2006 doesn't matter right now, we've got 2007.It's about how we're going to respond."


    The Bears were missing several key defensive players, includinglinebacker Lance Briggs, safety Adam Archuleta and startingcornerbacks Charles Tillman and Nathan Vasher, but they stillmanaged to hold the Lions to 97 total yards in the first half.

    "We keep beating ourselves," said Bears running back CedricBenson, who had just 50 yards on 15 carries. "We're making somany mistakes in the red zones - fumbles, interceptions and badplays. We can't keep doing this if we want to win any games."

    Detroit played without rookie wide receiver Calvin Johnson,starting right guard Damien Woody and defensive end KalimbaEdwards.
