Lions turn ball over on downs on opening drive

Detroit takes over at the 20-yard-line to start the game.

Matthew Stafford hits Mohamed Sanu on first down for a gain of 21 yards to the Detroit 41. 

Adrian Peterson rushes for 2 yards on first down. Stafford gives to Jamal Agnew on a quick pass that nets 19 yards and a new set of downs at the Chicago 38.

Agnew again on first down, this time for 5 yards. Kerryon Johnson gets no gain on second down, meaning a 4-yard pass to T.J. Hockenson will bring up fourth-and-1. Agnew takes a jet sweep, looks like he might have a lane to the first down, hesitates, and gets wrapped up short of the line. 

Turnover on downs.

Bears 3, Lions 0 (9:29 1st)

Bears take 3-0 lead to open game

Chicago will get the ball first, as Cordarrelle Patterson returns the opening kickoff to the Chicago 46.

David Montgomery runs for 4 yards on first down and Mitch Trubisky hits Allen Robinson on second down to quickly get the ball moving into Detroit territory.

Trubisky misses his next pass as Montgomery rushes for 8 yards on second down, but is dropped by Romeo Okwara for a loss of 1 on third down.

Cairo Santos hits the 45-yard field goal to give Chicago the lead.

Bears 3, Lions 0 (12:37 1st)
