It’s not limited to this game, but there hasn’t been much to be excited about offensively for the Bears’ passing attack … until this play:

Mitch Trubisky unleashed a 70-yard throw that landed in the waiting hands of running back Tarik Cohen in what is the Bears’ longest play from scrimmage this year. Trubisky’s 70-yard toss is also the longest since Week 10 of the 2015 season when Jay Cutler hit Zach Miller with an 87-yard touchdown throw against the St. Louis Rams. Ironically, that happens to be the last time the Bears won back-to-back games.
Back to the present, it’s great seeing two rookies making impact plays and moving the ball downfield. And that it helped put the Bears up 17-3 at halftime is icing on the cake. Soak it in, friends. This is what it looks like when your team gets production from the young players drafted by the front office. Who’s ready for some more? I know I am.
