The Detroit Lions’ revolving door of running backs gave the Chicago Bears late in the first half.

Rookie safety Eddie Jackson came away with Riddick’s fumble on the 3rd-and-long play, which came after an offensive pass interference penalty and set up the only scoring play for the Bears in the first half. Chicago cashed in on a rare scoring opportunity with a Mike Nugent a 41-yard field goal to cut the team’s deficit to 13-3 at halftime.
