CHICAGO (AP) — Matthew Stafford threw for 402 yards and three touchdowns and Adrian Peterson scored from the 5 after Romeo Okwara strip-sacked Mitchell Trubisky with about two minutes left.

The Detroit Lions won their first game under interim coach Darrell Bevell, rallying to beat the struggling Chicago Bears 34-30 on Sunday.

The Lions (5-7) came away with a wild win following a major shakeup in the wake of a Thanksgiving loss to Houston.

They fired general manager Bob Quinn and coach Matt Patricia while elevating Bevell.

Detroit trailed 30-20 early in the fourth period.
