With the Chicago Bears wrapping up their 2019 homestand against the Kansas City Chiefs, we answer some questions asked to us by a Chiefs expert.

Despite the fact that the Chicago Bears are out of the NFL playoffs with just two weeks left in the NFL season, they’ve got one final home game against the Kansas City Chiefs. At this point, the Bears are just playing to finish the season.

However, the biggest thing to look forward to on Sunday night will be the connection between both quarterbacks and then the two head coaches as well. Bears head coach Matt Nagy was mentored by Chiefs head coach Andy Reid for nearly a decade before being hired as the head coach of the Bears.

Then there’s the two third-year quarterbacks in Mitchell Trubisky and Patrick Mahomes who will forever be linked together due to the fact that both are from the same draft class. However, what makes this matchup and link even more interesting is the fact that the Bears opted to select Trubisky, who was a one-year starter at North Carolina over Mahomes who started three years at Texas Tech.

Essentially, it’s very clear that on Sunday night, it won’t just be another regular matchup. It will be a matchup between a mentor and a former student. It will also be a matchup of two quarterbacks that will always be compared no matter how both of their careers end up panning out.

With the matchup just days away, we talked to Leigh Oleszczak of FanSided’s KC Kingdom to get a unique perspective about the connection between Nagy and Reid, Trubisky and Mahomes, and then a preview of Sunday night’s matchup at Soldier Field that will see the Chiefs explosive offense go up against a stout Bears defense.
