Mitch Trubisky Named NFC Offensive Player of Week 10
Guess the news is out about Mitch Trubisky and the strides he’s making.
The Bears second-year quarterback garnered NFC Player of the Week honors for his Week 10 performance against the Detroit Lions, a 34-22 win.
In the game, which extended the Bears’ division lead, Trubisky completed 23 of 30 passes for a career-high 355 yards with three touchdowns, no turnovers and a 148.6 passer rating. He also rushed for a touchdown.
Trubisky is the first Bears player to win NFC Offensive Player of the Week since Jordan Howard did back in Week 8 of 2016 and the first Bears quarterback to win the award since Josh McCown in Week 14 of 2013.
“I thought Mitch probably had his best game of the season, without a doubt,” said coach Matt Nagy. “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.”
