Lions looking good despite Rashean Mathis head injury

Calvin Johnson, Lance Briggs, Charles Tillman AP

The Lions have struggled in recent years to keep their secondary healthy. So today’s news isn’t good.

Rashean Mathis, the veteran cornerback who signed with the Lions in mid-August and has played well early in the season, left today’s game with a head injury.

Detroit announced that Mathis would be re-evaluated at halftime.

Rookie Darius Slay is filling in for Mathis, and so far the Lions haven’t missed a beat on defense: On Slay’s first play, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler threw in his direction, but Lions safety Louis Delmas wisely recognized that Cutler would pick on the rookie, broke on the ball and intercepted it.

Lions safety Glover Quin added another interception of Cutler, returning it deep into Chicago territory, and Matthew Stafford hit Calvin Johnson in the end zone on the next play to give the Lions a 23-10 lead.

    This is turning into a good old fashioned Motor City beatdown! Reggie Bush just added another TD as I’m typing this.

    30-10 before halftime HAHA

    Cutlers looks in form.

    Miss Jayne Quitler is desperately looking for a way of not playing the second half. Look for a phantom injury to appear at halftime.

    Hope Scott Linehan does not get conservative

    Bears playing down to their competition again. How can they lose to a crap team like Detroit? It’s funny seeing Lion fans act like this is normal.

    I don’t see my Bears digging themselves out of this hole, but it’s hilarious that people are calling a 17-point lead a blowout. Wait til they are losing by 24 or 28!

    I cant see the Bears winning this game. NOT playing like this

  16. lionsdraftguy says: Sep 29, 2013 3:30 PM

    Bears draft Kyle Long to block Suh.

    Looks like they need a new method! Suh is destroying Long.

    Cutler looks like he’s getting bullied πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  18. chi01town says: Sep 29, 2013 3:34 PM

    Bears cant win this one. NOT playing like this.

    The Bears are the most overrated and overhyped team to start every season. Bears fans were talking a lot of trash a couple days ago, maybe you can now understand why you’re the most despised fans in the NFL. All talk and no substance.

    Sooooo funny how Chi01town changed his tune from last night!!! Bears r horrible we own the North this year get used to it!!

    Bears playing down to their competition again. How can they lose to a crap team like Detroit? It’s funny seeing…boy bears fans are delusional…are u serious dude…playing down to competition…Lowly Bears Fans…Ur team is getting the crap kicked out of them from start to finish…I could see the look on Ditkas face as he is watching this gm…Schwartz was not joking when he said Lions Safties are as good a pair as any in the league…funny Bears fans actually think they can come back..while the Lions were turning their attention to Green Bay at halftime!

  22. rockbottom37 says: Sep 29, 2013 3:47 PM

    Bears came into game: offense 23rd in league…Defense 24 in league both in bottom half …3-0 only cuz their TO…very flawed team. Hey Chitown you were close on your score but you picked wrong team.

  23. rockbottom37 says: Sep 29, 2013 3:49 PM

    I’ll sit back and read the pathetic excuses that will come from pathetic Bears fans …the rest of Sunday!

  24. lionsdraftguy says: Sep 29, 2013 3:53 PM

    Kyle Long cant stop Suh!

    Chi08Town aint talkin now!

  25. jazsrt says: Sep 29, 2013 3:57 PM

    T.O. battle wins the game.

    Tip of the hat to the Lions- Cutler was off today but he’ll bounce back.

    I’ll be cheering on the team to the north next week!

  26. wukhaos313 says: Sep 29, 2013 4:03 PM

    I don’t hear the bears fans right now smh

  27. rockbottom37 says: Sep 29, 2013 4:09 PM

    Lions got a lot of backups in 4th Q

  28. rockbottom37 says: Sep 29, 2013 4:16 PM

    Bears play dirty when they getting whipped! can’t believe a penalty was not called on the onside kick

  29. chi01town says: Sep 29, 2013 4:19 PM

    The turn overs killed the Bears today. To give the Lions credit they took advanage of every one. good game Lions

  30. chi01town says: Sep 29, 2013 4:26 PM

    Cutler had a bad first half but credit the Lions defense for not letting him get away with his mistakes. Peppers came to play but the rest of Chicago’s defense didnt.

  31. rockbottom37 says: Sep 29, 2013 4:28 PM

    Because their classless fans I’m sorry to say…bet you not one Bears fan will say the Lions just whipped us today they will either not post anything or come up with all kinds of excuses like throwing Cutler under the Bus who I thought played decent, had a lot of dropped passes…boy they make packer and Vikings fans look good!
