1. Mitch Trubisky

It should be obvious that the most is on the line for Trubisky, but most fans probably know how his final five games will go. Trubisky is going to be a free agent this offseason, and while he will not be back in Chicago, he is playing for more than anyone else.

He is not going to be handed a job by anyone. However, the final five games will decide whether he gets taken seriously at his next stop or is discarded across the league. Marcus Mariota and Ryan Tannehill were players GMs bet on, while Blake Bortles flushed out.

Trubisky has to show maturity in his decision making. He has to show that sitting on the bench did some sort of good for him. He cannot make the same mistakes he made before.

Trubisky has to know that the final five games here will be responsible for the job he gets in 2021. It could make him millions, or cost him the chance to get a shot in the NFL ever again. Chicago Bears fans may be done with him, but he has a lot at stake for himself now.
