2018 Chicago Bears: 3 Players to Watch on Offense and Defense in Week 2
The last time Mitch Trubisky started a Monday night game was actually his first career start. Trubisky connected on 12 of 25 pass attempts for 128 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in a 20-17 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. In order to get his first Monday night win, the second-year quarterback must improve on what was a solid outing last week against the Packers. Trubisky came out sharp, leading Chicago to a touchdown on their opening drive, only to regress in the second half. The North Carolina product had a number of missed throws late in the game that would’ve helped put the game away for the Bears.
The Seahawks surrendered 329 yards and three touchdowns in the air last week, but they also recorded three interceptions. We’ll have to see if Trubisky can put up similar numbers without the giveaways.
