DETROIT – The Detroit Lions remain winless after losing the annual Thanksgiving game at Ford Field against the Chicago Bears.

The Lions led the game in the fourth quarter, 14-13, before the Bears finished them off with a long, time-consuming, game-winning drive that resulted in the go-ahead field goal. The final score was 16-14.

Lions quarterback Jared Goff threw for more than 170 yards. Bears QB Andy Dalton threw for more than 300 yards.

The Lions last won on Thanksgiving back in 2016. They drop to 0-10-1 on the 2021 season.
