[October 06, 2008]  DETROIT (AP) -- Like many NFL players, Kyle Orton seems to love playing the Detroit Lions.

Orton set career highs in passing yards, completions and quarterback rating while throwing two touchdowns to lead the Chicago Bears to a 34-7 win over Detroit on Sunday.

RestaurantHe was 24-of-34 for 334 yards and had a 121.4 rating, improving to 3-0 against the Lions.

Chicago (3-2) broke a first-place tie with the Green Bay Packers, who lost at home to Atlanta, to lead the lackluster NFC North with about one-third of the season completed.
