Detroit scored on all five of its possessions in the first half to lead 27-17 after scoring a total of six points in its previous two games.

Dallas improved to 6-and-2. Justin Fields completed 17-of-23 passes for 151 yards and two touchdowns. Chicago combined to rush for 240 yards, but fell to 3-and-5 with the loss. The Bears have dropped four of their last five.

Commanders Edge Colts
Taylor Heinicke led a game-winning drive as the Washington Commanders beat the Indianapolis Colts 17-16 at Lucas Oil Stadium. Heinicke threw a 33-yard pass to Terry McLaurin to get Washington to the one-yard line with under a minute left in regulation and then scored the game-winning touchdown on a quarterback sneak the very next play. Heinicke added 279 passing yards, one passing touchdown, and an interception in the win. Washington has won its last three to improve to 4-and-4. Sam Ehlinger had 201 passing yards in his first career start. The Colts are 3-4-and-1 after losing their last two contests.
