The Bears' winning streak is over, and the Lions are no longer without a win in 2015.
After the Bears won back-to-back games with late comebacks over the Raiders and Chiefs, they made another come-from-behind effort Sunday at Ford Field, but it was the Lions walking away with the 37-34 win thanks to Matt Prater's game-winning field goal in overtime.
Trailing by eight entering the fourth quarter, the Bears got two touchdowns in the first seven and a half minutes of the period — one on a pass from Jay Cutler to Alshon Jeffery and another from Matt Forte — to take a 31-24 lead with less than eight minutes to play.
But a Prater field goal shaved that lead to just four points, and Matthew Stafford, after a strange sequence in the final minute featuring a pair of penalties, hit Calvin Johnson from six yards out for a go-ahead touchdown with 21 seconds left.
The Bears had another comeback in them. Cutler completed back-to-back passes to Jeffery for a total of 49 yards, and a Lions pass-interference penalty set up Robbie Gould's game-tying field goal from 29 yards away as regulation ended.

In overtime, the Bears and Lions traded two punts each before Stafford led a 77-yard drive, setting up Prater's game-winning kick with a 57-yard pass to Johnson.
Cutler completed 26 of his 41 passing attempts for 353 yards and had both a touchdown and an interception. Jeffery, in just his second game of the season, caught eight passes for 147 yards and a touchdown. Forte rushed 24 times for 69 yards and a touchdown.
Stafford passed for 405 yards and four touchdowns, also throwing an interception. Johnson caught six passes for 166 yards and a touchdown, while Lance Moore caught five passes for 106 yards and a touchdown. The Lions amassed 546 total offensive yards on the afternoon.
The Bears sank to 2-4 with the loss, while the Lions captured their first win of the season following an 0-5 start.
