1. Tyson Bagent showed that he belongs
With Justin Fields out, you would not think that a quarterback would have been one of the biggest storylines, but it would be impossible to walk away from this game and not discuss Tyson Bagent. Bagent is a rookie UDFA at quarterback, which rarely works out and turns into anything. However, it is hard to walk away from Bagent's play after two weeks and not think about the possibility of what he can become.
The former Shepherd quarterback was the backup, ahead of Nathan Peterman, which was a question coming into the game. Bagent may have ensured that he will never be behind Peterman again with his play.
Bagent went 9-10 for 76 yards. He added a rushing touchdown on four yards. The stats are fine, but the play showed what he is and can become. He looked poised in the pocket and had command in the huddle. Beyond that, it is obvious what kind of arm he has. Neither Peterman nor PJ Walker has the velocity on their throws that Bagent brings.
Bagent is likely to stick to the practice squad this year because he is still very raw, and this was just a minor look into what he can do. Still, the Bears may have pulled him after that touchdown drive because they did not want teams to get any funny ideas. Another strong week, and the Bears may have to decide if he should stick on the 53-man roster.
