The Bears were hoping to make some noise in the NFC North, not succumb to the excessive noise at Ford Field Monday Night.

Nine false-start penalties, a few key dropped passes and big plays yielded by the defense left the Bears on the short end of a 24-13 decision to the Detroit Lions. The Bears fell to 2-3 and Detroit remained unbeaten. The Lions have begun the season 5-0 for the first time since 1956.

"We're not playing good, we're not playing disciplined, we're not running to our gaps, we are not physical," said Bears middle linebacker Brian Urlacher. "We're physical sometimes and not all of the time. I don't know how many yards that kid (Jahvid Best) had (163). He probably had 10 carries (actually 12). That's not very good."

With the Lions and Packers both unbeaten, the Bears have dug themselves an early hole with 11 games remaining, including Sunday night's home date against the Minnesota Vikings.
