Patriots 34, Lions 9 – Brady passes Patriots to 34-9 win over Lions
Tom Brady threw for 349 yards and two touchdowns in a pass-heavy offense against the NFL’s stingiest rushing defense and the New England Patriots (9-2) stretched their winning streak to seven games with a 34-9 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday. The Patriots led 24-6 at halftime as Brady repeatedly found wide-open receivers while the Lions struggled on offense. For the second straight game, Detroit failed to score a touchdown. Detroit (7-4) lost for the second straight week against a conference leader. It fell to Arizona 14-6 last Sunday. LeGarrette Blount rushed for 78 yards and two touchdowns three days after signing with New England after being cut by Pittsburgh.

Bears 21, Buccaneers 13 – Bears rally for 21-13 victory over Buccaneers
Matt Forte rushed for two touchdowns in the third quarter, and the Bears spoiled Lovie Smith’s return to Chicago with a 21-13 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. Jay Cutler threw a 2-yard TD pass to Alshon Jeffery as the Bears (5-6) scored 21 straight points to erase a 10-0 halftime deficit. Forte had a 13-yard run that put Chicago ahead to stay, and then added a 1-yard plunge that made it 21-10. Smith coached the Bears to three playoff appearances and a trip to the 2007 Super Bowl during his successful nine-year run in Chicago. He was hired by Tampa Bay in January, and his first game back at Soldier Field showed just how far he has to go to get the lowly Bucs (2-9) back on track.
