Detroit is coming off a 38-24 victory over winless Cleveland at Ford Field.

Offensively, the Bears are averaging 16.7 points and 291.6 total yards (169.8 in passing and 121.8 in rushing) per game. Also, noted Bears killer Aaron Rodgers was out with a broken collarbone, so Chicago had a chance to win.

Bears Twitter used the old "This is fine" dog-in-a-burning-room meme to convey the team's emotional reaction around the time Fox challenged a play where Benny Cunningham dived at the end zone pylon.

Finally, for the first time in a month, players stepped up and rallied around Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Hundley, who repaid his teammates on Sunday in Chicago by delivering two impact plays with the game still in the balance in the fourth quarter. Chicago hit a field goal with a little over three minutes left to pull within three, and the game got really interesting when Mason Crosby missed a field goal to give the Bears the ball back with a little over a minute left in the game. The line had its worst game of the season, allowing Mitch Trubisky to be sacked five times, and what we thought was an ascending defense looked like it had forgotten all it had learned the first half of the season.

The Buccaneers, who never trailed despite playing without injured quarterback Jameis Winston, broke a five-game losing streak. The touchback gave Green Bay possession at the Chicago 20-yard line, ending the drive with no points. Tampa Bay, which came into the game with an NFL-low eight sacks, had six on Sunday against the Jets. Eric Ebron had 39 yards and a touchdown.

Uber's biggest rival Lyft eyes Toronto expansion by end of year
On Thursday, he described progress in talks with regulators in London, who in September refused to renew Uber's operating license. Last week, Lyft's rival Uber revealed competition between the two firms is driving losses in the US.

A 29 yard pass interference penalty on Prince Amukamara against Jordy Nelson put the ball in Chicago territory early in the second and Ty Montgomery took it from there.

This performance wasn't as bad as that one in 2014, of course. Running backs are taught to not try and push the ball over the goal line unless its fourth down because of the exact issue that the Bears faced on Sunday.

Murray's third score of the day capped a 12-play drive. Mitchell Trubisky completed 21 of 35 passes for 297 yards and a touchdown. Mariota finished 25 of 44 for 264 yards with an interception as the Titans won their fourth straight game. Chicago Head Coach John Fox challenged the spot but never dreamed of the replay decision from NY. Cunningham had told the coach when he got to the sideline he felt he was in the end zone, and Fox was looking to tie the game right then and there.

The first two starts of Hundley's National Football League career showed how one leak here or one stumble there can cause the whole operation to crumble.
