Lions' Stafford passes Aikman on career yards list

(TSX / STATS) -- CHICAGO - As a kid growing up near Dallas, Matthew Stafford idolized Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman.

On Sunday afternoon at Soldier Field, Stafford accomplished something he once believed would be impossible. The Detroit Lions' 29-year-old quarterback moved past his boyhood hero on the NFL's career passing list.

The individual milestone came along with a narrow victory for Detroit (6-4), which held on for a 27-24 road win over the Chicago Bears. The Lions have won three games in a row to improve their NFC playoff hopes.
