Lions rookie equals HOFer Barry Sanders in win over Bears


Detroit Lions first-year running back Jahmyr Gibbs made impressive franchise history after another strong performance in Sunday’s 31-26 win over the Chicago Bears. 

Gibbs found the end zone for the fourth consecutive game in Week 11, becoming only the third rookie running back in Lions history to do so, joining Kevin Jones (2004) and Hall of Famer Barry Sanders (1989), per Bridget Condon of NFL Network. 

On Sunday, Gibbs finished with 95 combined yards against the Bears. The versatile rookie caught all six targets from quarterback Jared Goff, tallying 59 receiving yards (9.8 YPC). Meanwhile, on the ground, Gibbs rushed eight times for 36 yards (4.5) with a two-yard touchdown run in the second quarter.
