1. Have Mitchell Trubisky play smart football
The last time these two teams met, Mitchell Trubisky tossed two interceptions. Eventually, the Bears defense bailed the offense out. This Sunday, the Vikings will attack Mitchell Trubisky with the same gameplan that they had back in week 11.
Vikings Head Coach Mike Zimmer will do everything he can to get Mitchell Trubisky after his comfort zone early. He’ll use a variety of defensive looks that will be designed to throw the entire Bears offense out of sync.
The Bears must counter and draw up a set of plays in the first quarter that Mitchell Trubisky is comfortable with. If Matt Nagy can do this, then the Bears offense can get into rhythm early and have a chance to breakdown a Minnesota Vikings defense that will be on its heels the entire game.
While Nagy can call all the scripted plays that he wants, ultimately, it’s all on Mitchell Trubisky to go through progressions, make the right reads, and make correct decisions when throwing the football.
