CHICAGO (AP) - Matthew Stafford threw for 299 yards and two touchdowns and Matt Prater kicked a 52-yard field goal with 1:35 remaining as the Detroit Lions beat the Chicago Bears 27-24. Detroit took the lead after Tarik Cohen tied it for Chicago with a 15-yard touchdown run. Prater booted the winner after Stafford led a 42-yard drive to the 34. The Lions escaped with their third straight win when the Bears' Connor Barth missed a 46-yarder wide right in the closing seconds.

CHICAGO (AP) - Mitchell Trubisky showed some promising signs in Chicago's 27-24 loss to Detroit, but he also made a couple of big mistakes in the Bears' third straight loss. The rookie quarterback passed for 179 yards and a touchdown and rushed for 53 yards on six carries. But he also fumbled a snap that Detroit returned for a touchdown.

PHOENIX (AP) - T.J. Warren scored 27 points to lead six Phoenix players in double figures and the Suns handed the Chicago Bulls their sixth loss in seven games, 113-105.

HOMESTEAD, Fla. (AP) - Danica Patrick crashed and finished 37th in her final NASCAR race as a full-time driver.
