 Jahvid Best twirled around in the end zone looking for somebody to celebrate the second-longest rushing touchdown in Lions history.

But no one was there. That is how fast the Lions running back burned 88 yards of rubber and turf Monday night at Ford Field. So he took an extra hop-skip before doing a flying body slam with receiver Nate Burleson, who finally came on the scene after what seemed like an hour. Nobody could keep up, friend nor foe.

Best looked like he was shot out of a cannon while putting an exclamation point on the Lions’ 24-13 victory over the Chicago Bears in their proudest moment since another smallish back named Barry ran between the tackles at the Pontiac Silverdome.

“We didn’t do anything new,” Best said. “It was just that the creases were a little bit bigger.”

The Lions beat the hated Bears on a big night for Detroit when big plays ruled. Read the rest here at the Detroit News.
