Of course, we all know that all eyes will be on rookie Mitchell Trubisky. Ever since the team announced that he was promoted to starting quarterback, Trubisky has been in the spotlight more than ever. The second-overall draft pick will be the first Bears rookie quarterback to start a game since Kyle Orton in 2005. Unfortunately, Trubisky won’t have any big-name targets to throw to. However, that fact that he will be facing a Vikings pass defense that is ranked 24th in the league may make things a tad bit easier for the North Carolina product. Unlike Mike Glennon, Trubisky is athletic enough to make plays outside of the pocket, and has a strong arm. Hopefully, that mobility and throwing power will take this offense to another level, and be a better complement to their running game.
