From the Bears’ game plan against Tom Brady to Khalil Mack playing through injury, here are five observations from Week 7.
A self-proclaimed “rep person,” Trubisky thrives on experience. Failure is just as valuable — maybe even more valuable — than success.
Just because the Hail Mary try at the end of Sunday’s game almost worked doesn’t mean that they should have tried the same tactic before halftime.
What role did Mack’s injured right ankle play in the decision? Was chasing slippery pass-catchers really easier on his ankle?
It’s hard to believe that many fans walked out of Soldier Field on Sunday thinking their team was ready to take on the world. Not even close.
Some weeks are better than others for the Bears. Here’s how three Bears fared in Sunday’s 38-31 home loss to the Patriots:
Bears coach Matt Nagy said Sunday that quarterback Mitch Trubisky’s rushing yards didn’t count in the run game’s ledger.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady went 25-for-36 with three touchdowns, one interception and a 108.2 passer rating.
Bears receiver Kevin White caught a 54-yard Hail Mary from Mitch Trubisky.
Mack, playing on a bum right ankle, was no factor, with one tackle and no impact plays. … it’s clear the Bears are going to have to get him right.
Mitch Trubisky went 26-for-50 for 333 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions — but had a season-worst 69.8 passer rating.
Nothing about Trubisky’s 69.8 passer rating and 52 percent completion rate Sunday says he played well. He doesn’t need his coach shielding him.
The Bears allowed 14 points on special teams against the Patriots.
The Bears were knocked down to 3-3 and into their first losing streak of the season.
