DETROIT (AP) — David Montgomery's go-ahead 1-yard touchdown run with 29 seconds left against his former team lifted the Detroit Lions to a 31-26 comeback victory over Justin Fields and the Chicago Bears.

The NFC North-leading Lions overcame four turnovers, including Jared Goff's season-high three interceptions.

Detroit rallied from a 12-point deficit over the last 3:06 to rally for the win.

The Lions are 8-2 for the first time since 1962, giving the franchise a shot to win a division title for the first time in three decades.

Chicago blew chances to win consecutive games for the first time in nearly two years.
