After failing to wrap up Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields all day, Detroit Lions defensive end Aidan Hutchinson finally got home when it mattered most. On the final Bears drive of the game, he blindsided Fields with a strip-sack that forced Bears OT Darnell Wright to kick the ball out of the end zone and send the Bears into a game-sealing safety.

The strip-sack safety capped off a 12-point comeback by the Lions in the last three minutes of the game, and propelled the Lions to a 31-26 win at home. It puts the Lions at 8-2, their first such start since 1962.
The Lions are slated to take on the Green Bay Packers on their nationally televised Thanksgiving Day game Thursday at 12:30 p.m. TE. The Lions play the Bears again in two weeks, when they will travel to Soldier Field and try to strengthen their lead over the rest of the NFC North.
