The Chicago Bears dropped to 3-6 after a frustrating loss to the rival Packers.

There was no shortage of optimism surrounding the Chicago Bears coming off their bye week. Fans, players and coaches all seemed hopeful for a big win to start out the second half.

Unfortunately, the Bears couldn’t pull out the win. Kudos to the Packers (especially Jamaal Williams and Brett Hundley), who played a great game, but you can’t help but think that this one would’ve ended a bit differently if not for a few mistakes.

The defense played well. Three sacks on the day as well as four tackles for a loss is typically good enough to win an average game.

The offense was generally mistake-free. Despite a few poor throws by Mitch Trubisky, the offense maintained a solid flow against a good Green Bay defense.

In fact, the worst mistake of the day was not made by a player. John Fox’ decision to challenge the ruling that Benny Cunningham was down at the 1-Yard line immediately backfired, as the rule was overturned…. to a touchback.

If there’s one play that Bears fans remember from this game it’ll certainly be this. The rule is controversial, challenge or not, but you can’t help but blame Fox for his poor decision-making.

Despite the mistakes (including 8 penalties for 78 yards), the Bears offense looked somewhat solid. At the center of this was Mitch Trubisky, who is your Week 10 MVP.

Trubisky threw for a career-high 297 yards (21-35, 60% completion percentage) as well as one touchdown, a 46-Yard bomb to Josh Bellamy.

Trubisky did a great job of rebounding from all of the penalties throughout the game. Even more impressive was his ability to step up in place of the ineffective run game (55 total yards).

But what perhaps was most impressive was Trubiskys ability to get everybody involved;

Dontrelle Inman totaled 88 yards on six catches in his Bears debut.

Adam Shaheen racked up 39 yards in his first career start.

Josh Bellamy notched 57 yards and the Bears’ lone touchdown.

Yes, it was a pretty ugly, disappointing and frustrating loss. But one thing is for sure- Mitch Trubisky is pretty darn good.

Keep your heads up, Bears fans… the future is bright.
