Lions finally able to contain Howard in win vs. Bears

(TSX / STATS) -- DETROIT -- Akeem Spence was tired of seeing Jordan Howard consistently gash the Detroit Lions' run defense.

Howard, the Chicago Bears' second-year running back, gained 125 rushing yards on 15 carries in the first meeting between the teams this season. He rushed for 86 and 111 yards in two games against them during his rookie campaign.

Spence and the Lions defenders finally took a stand against Howard and the Bears on Saturday. Howard gained just 37 yards on 10 carries as the Lions captured a much-needed 20-10 victory at Ford Field.
