Just a week ago, I came away thinking how uneven Mitch Trubisky played in Arizona and how much work he had to do to get better.

Fast forward exactly a week and Trubisky has gone from an ordinary to one on the rise after a dazzling six touchdown performance in a 48-10 blowout win over Tampa Bay on Sunday.

Not only did Trubisky tripled the number of touchdown passes he’s thrown this season in just one game, he nearly reached the seven touchdown total he recorded in 12 games as a rookie in 2017.

Records Broken

—Trubisky became the first quarterback with at least five passing touchdowns in a single half since Aaron Rodgers had six in the first half on November 9, 2014 against the Bears.

—Trubisky became the third Bears quarterback alongside Sid Luckman (1943) and Johnny Lujack (1949) to throw six touchdowns in a game. Luckman passed for seven touchdowns in 1943 which still stands as the NFL record.

—Trubisky joined Michael Vick (2010) and Steve Young (1991) as the only players to record at least 250 passing yards and 50 rushing yards in the first half. Trubisky had 289 passing yards and 53 rushing yards in the opening half.

Final Thoughts

This performance from Trubisky and the Bears’ offense is certainly a confidence booster. We have to give credit to head coach Matt Nagy for dialing up creative play calls which included gadget players Taylor Gabriel, Tarik Cohen and Trey Burton often.

Allen Robinson is the clear safety blanket for Robinson. Once Anthony Miller and Adam Shaheen return from injury this offense will have even more weapons to work with.

This is all being talked about despite Jordan Howard’s 11 carry, 25-yard performance. The Bears took advantage of an inferior defense and worked open areas on the field. Howard will be a huge part of this offense regardless of how much Trubisky or Cohen runs.

Trubisky must continue to play at a high level. No one can expect six touchdowns each week, but if he can toss a minimum of two touchdowns and keep the turnovers down then this offense will be a steady compliment to the ferocious defense led by Khalil Mack.
