Lions Vs. Bears Score: Jahvid Best's 88-Yard Touchdown Run Extends Detroit's Lead

The biggest weakness for the Detroit Lions this season has been their running game. Not much appeared to have changed with it on Monday night against the Chicago Bears, but in the third quarter Jahvid Best broke off the second-longest run in Lions history, going 88 yards for a touchdown to put the Lions on top by a score of 21-10.

Best's run came on the one and only play of the Lions' first drive after the Brandon Pettigrew touchdown catch. The Bears punted the ball away, and Best went right down the middle of the field untouched for the score.

Thanks mainly to the 88-yard run, Best now has his first career 100-yard rushing game. Despite only carrying the ball six times, he has 112 yards. Obviously that indicates the Lions still have a problem running the ball outside of the 88-yard score, but hey, if you can get a big run mixed in with a great passing game, the Lions will certainly take it.
