Week 10 Postgame: Bears 34, Lions 22 (Press Conferences, Locker Room Celebration)
Earlier this week, Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky said that this team would get a good idea of where they’re at following this three-game divisional stretch. And if they play the next two games like they did in the first half of Sunday’s win against the Lions, they’ll be in pretty great shape.
The Chicago Bears dominated the Detroit Lions (though the score doesn’t indicate it) in a 34-22 victory, ending a 10-game winless drought against division opponents.
Mitch Trubisky had his “best game this season,” according to his head coach. Trubisky completed 23 of 30 passes for a career-high 355 yards and three touchdowns, as well as rushed for a touchdown, posting a 148.6 passer rating.
But it wasn’t just the stats that made this a stand-out performance. It was the eye test. Trubisky made some great throws and smart decisions as he continued to show how comfortable he’s becoming in mastering this offense. He also stuck it to critics that were unfairly riding him all week.
“I thought Mitch probably had his best game of the season, without a doubt,” Nagy said. “He was on fire, he was efficient, threw the ball with conviction, his eyes were great. I’m really super proud of him for coming out here and playing that way. He played confident, and I like that.”
