Some quick thoughts on a win over the Detroit Lions:
How it Happened: It got a little close for comfort in the fourth quarter, but the NFC North leading Chicago Bears improved their record to 6-3 with a 34-22 victory over the Detroit Lions at Soldier Field. This game was a true team effort, highlighted by the stellar play of Mitchell Trubisky to go along with the stingy Bears’ defense. Trubisky accounted for four touchdowns, and Chicago’s defense forced three takeaways to go along with six sacks. Most importantly, Chicago did not turn the ball over once all game and led throughout. With the win, the Bears improve to 6-3 and pick up their first division win since 2016.
Prolific Performer: Mitchell Trubisky had one of his best games as a pro this afternoon, throwing for a career-high 355 yards and three touchdowns on 23/30 passing. If that wasn’t enough, Trubisky also ran for 18 yards and a score. Trubisky was confident in his decision making, and did not turn the ball over en route to a 148.5 passer rating.
Standout Stat: Today’s standout stat would be the three turnovers forced by the Bears’ defense. This was the sixth game in the last seven when Chicago has achieved that feat, and that easily leads the NFL. The Bears also lead the NFL in points off takeaways.
