The Bears eclipsed the 30-point plateau for the first time in over two years on sunday afternoon, as Mitchell Trubisky and the Bears were firing on all cylinders. Kendall Wright became the first Bears receiver this season to total 100-plus yards, as the veteran wide had 107 yards on 10 catches.

In total, Trubisky threw for 271 yards and a touchdown. Even more impressive was Trubisky’s consistency, as he completed 25 of 32 passes (78%).

The name of the game on offense for the Bears this season has been their running attack. Today was an example of just how dangerous the Bears offense can be when both are in full force.

The Bears racked up 232 yards on the ground, with Jordan Howard accounting for 147 of those yards.

Trubisky ran in a touchdown as well, as the Bears offensive efficiency was the deciding factor in todays blowout win.

Trubisky benefitted greatly from the Bears multi-score lead, as he was able to make plays freely without having to worry about the game changing with just one mistake.

In the end, its too-little too-late for the Bears. Already eliminated from playoff contention, the Bears effort carries little meaning in the long run.

But the Bears future was on display today. The play of Howard and Trubisky made the future a bit brighter heading into the three games of the season.
