The Bears never looked back from scoring an early touchdown as they moved to 5-1 for the season - and their fourth successive win.
Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler went for an unspectacular 16-for-31 passes for 150 yards - but crucially he connected with Brandon Marshall for a touchdown.
Cutler found Marshall, who caught six passes for 81 yards, on Chicago's opening drive of the match, while Robbie Gould slotted over a field goal in each half.
Cutler was forced temporarily from the field after a big hit from Ndamukong Suh in the second quarter - however it was the Bears defence that impressed.
Chicago forced three key turnovers - with Lions running back Joique Bell coughing up possession on the one-yard line - while Charles Tillman refused to give Calvin Johnson an inch.
The Bears defence remained on top until the final minute when the Lions managed to crossed for a score.
Matthew Stafford completed 28-for-46 for 261 yards and one interception - with his 12-yard touchdown pass to Ryan Broyles coming with just 36 seconds left.
