Lions defensive end Cliff Avril had a career-high three sacks against the Bears while primarily matched up with rookie right tackle J'Marcus Webb.
"There are always a lot of factors involved with it," Bears coach Lovie Smith said. "But of course we don't want to give up that many [sacks], and we'll continue to get better along the offensive line. But you have to give Cliff his due also. He had a heck of a game. Those three sacks were big."
After the game, Webb said that he felt more comfortable as the game progressed.
"I felt like I got better and held my own and helped us get a much-needed win," he said.
