The Chicago Bears finally have a reason to smile as they picked up their first win of the season over the Detroit Lions on Sunday.

The Bears overcame the Lions 17-14 on Sunday and they did it with their backup quarterback Brian Hoyer as their starter.

A long term fix?

Hoyer came in during the Bears loss in week three against the Philadelphia Eagles following an injury to regular starter Jay Cutler.

Cutler was officially out for week four though and Hoyer put in a solid performance, throwing for 302 yards and two touchdowns.

Now questions are being asked about the starters job in Chicago and whether or not it will be given back to Cutler when he returns?

Bears head coach John Fox has in typical fashion, not confirmed anything about the quarterback position itself, but he has reiterated one key fact.

Claiming that if there is a player who is doing well, they will continue to start, Fox could have just given Hoyer the biggest incentive possible to continue playing the way he did on Sunday.

Chicago will be travelling to take on the struggling Indianapolis Colts this weekend and another strong performance from Hoyer could see Cutler lose his spot all together.
