Jahvid Best took a handoff from Matthew Stafford and went untouched up the middle for an 88-yard touchdown, and the Detroit Lions went on to beat the Chicago Bears 24-13 on Monday night to improve to 5-0. It's their best start since 1956. The unbeaten Lions, playing their first regular-season Monday night game in a decade, trailed 10-7 at halftime before two third-quarter touchdowns. Stafford put Detroit ahead with an 18-yard strike to Brandon Pettigrew, and Best's long run padded the Lions' advantage. The Bears looked unnerved at times by the raucous Ford Field crowd.
