Mitchell Trubisky leads the Chicago Bears to a victory against the Detriot Lions on Thanksgiving and helps them get back to .500.
The Chicago Bears needed to come away with a victory in order for them to get back to the .500 mark, and to keep there hopes alive in the NFC Wild Card race.
They already had an idea of what they were going up against since they did play them in week 10.
Bears fans thought this would be an “easy” win based off the Bears defense going up against an undrafted rookie named David Blough, but it’s the NFL, anything can happen.
To start the game, Mitchell Trubisky looked unstoppable. Ended up throwing a touchdown pass to none other than Allen Robinson to take an early lead. Then after that touchdown by the Bears, the defense just could not seem to put a stop to David Blough and the Lions offense.
Blough came out on his first possession throwing absolute dimes and ended up throwing his first career NFL touchdown to Kenny Golladay for a 75-yard touchdown, and then threw yet another touchdown to Marvin Jones Jr for an 8-yard touchdown.
The Bears went headed into the second quarter of the game down 14-7 after the defense struggled to stop the Lions offense. It was not a time to panic for Bears fans because there was still a lot of football left to be played. Both teams ended up only putting up a field goal each, as they went into the half with the Lions leading 17-10.
The first half for the Bears was not good as Prince Amukamara was getting exposed by Kenny Golladay and the defense just could not stop Blough and the Lions Offense.
But the second half for the Bears was a different story, and they looked like a completely different team. The defense came up with a couple of great stops, and Trubisky was outstanding.
Trubisky ended up finding tight end Jesper Horsted for a touchdown to tie things up at 17-17.
The Bears needed to find a tight end who can finally make plays, and honestly, I hope that’s Horsted from here on out.
Heading into the fourth quarter of the game, the Lions lead it 20-17. So if the Bears wanted to walk out of Detriot with a victory, the defense needed a couple of stops, and Trubisky needed to lead the offense down the field to score at least a field goal to tie things up, or a touchdown to take the lead.
All things went the Bears way, as the defense came up strong and shut out the Lions offense and Trubisky ended up leading them all the way down the field. As he found wide receiver Anthony Miller for a 35-yard reception.
The Chicago Bears needed to drive down the field to take the lead, and Miller came up clutch with that catch. Then Trubisky ended up finding him yet again for another 32-yard reception, which put them inside the red zone.
To seal the deal for the Bears, Trubisky found none other than David Montgomery for the game-winning touchdown. The Bears walked out of Detriot with a win, and they are back to .500 with a record of 6-6. Their playoff hopes are still alive everybody.
When the Chicago Bears needed him the most, Trubisky came up clutch and put the team on his back. He is now 3-0 against the Detriot Lions with Matt Patricia as the Lions’ head coach. The Bears have now won three of the last four games, and are still alive in the NFC wild-card race. Next up for Chicago is the Dallas Cowboys at Soldier Field on Thursday Night Football. Let’s go Bears.
