MVP #1: QB Mitch Trubisky
The Bears logged a big win over the 11-2 Los Angeles Rams last week in a defensive battle at Soldier Field. While the defense completely shut down LA’s high-powered offense, Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky had a rough game during the 15-6 win.
Trubisky threw three interceptions in the Sunday night game and looked off all night. Trubisky missed two straight games leading up to the Rams game, so he may have just been rusty. In the end, it didn’t matter as his defense bailed him out.
Trubisky came into Sunday with something to prove. He’s had both great and terrible performances this season and is clearly still learning. He looked much improved on Sunday and had a great game.
Trubisky went 20-28 with 235 yards passing and two touchdowns. He also didn’t turn the ball over and used his mobility to escape pass rushers on multiple occasions.
The Bears were on the verge of breaking a 14-14 tie in the fourth quarter when running back Tarik Cohen fumbled on a play where he was taking a direct snap. The defense helped the offense out by forcing a three-and-out on the ensuing Packers drive.
With the team needing a scoring drive, Trubisky came through. He led the Bears down a short field and found tight end Trey Burton for a 13-yard touchdown. It was just what the Bears needed to take the momentum back.
Trubisky’ season is still a work in progress. All eyes will be on him when the Bears eventually play a playoff game. He proved today that he can put a bad game behind him as he continues to learn on the job.
