Bears bounce Lions...Jets QB may not play this weekend... Badgers top Sooners
DETROIT (AP) — Chase Daniel made the most of his chance to fill in for Mitchell Trubisky, having the best day of his journeyman career. Daniel set career highs with 230 yards passing and two touchdowns to keep the Chicago Bears rolling with a 23-16 win over the Detroit Lions. The NFC North-leading Bears sealed their fifth straight victory with Kyle Fuller’s interception in the end zone with a little more than a minute left. Detroit has lost four of five.
NEW YORK (AP) — Jets rookie quarterback Sam Darnold sat out team drills for a second straight day of practice, increasing the likelihood he will sit out New York’s game against New England on Sunday.

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Robert Kubica will make his return to Formula One next year with the Williams team.

The 33-year-old Polish driver impressed in testing for Williams last year and was a reserve and development driver this year.
