VIDEOS: Lions Touchdowns From Monday Night's Win Over Bears

There weren't any touchdowns in triple coverage or leaps over the offensive line into the end zone during Monday night's game against the Chicago Bears, but the Detroit Lions' three scores were quite memorable.

The first touchdown of the game was when Calvin Johnson scored on a 73-yard reception on a perfectly-thrown pass from Matthew Stafford. Johnson simply beat the defenders on him, and Stafford's great pass allowed him to catch it in stride, stiff-arm a defender and run into the end zone. Take a look:

The Lions' second touchdown gave them the lead early on in the third quarter. Stafford found a wide-open Brandon Pettigrew for an 18-yard score, and not only did he give the Lions the lead, but he also put me ahead in my game with Hyperion Ecta in the POD Fantasy Football League. Hype was undefeated, so a big thanks to Pettigrew, who was a guest on the most recent Pride of Detroit Podcast, for helping the Lions and I get the win. Here's the TD:

The final touchdown on Monday essentially put the game out of reach for the Bears. Jahvid Best took a handoff out of the shotgun on the first and only play of the drive and ran untouched for an 88-yard score. Here's the play:

I think it's safe to say Jim Schwartz has a new Best video to add to his collection.
