Now, that is how an efficient offense is supposed to operate.
Mitch Trubisky completed all four of his pass attempts for 57 yards, sprinkled in some runs from running backs Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen, then finished the drive strong:

Trubisky turned back the clock to his college days, finishing the drive with a 4-yard touchdown run that gave the Chicago Bears a 20-7 lead over the Cincinnati Bengals. His first career rushing score in the NFL was set up by the production and balance that led to the Chicago to run a 1st-and-goal play from inside-the-5.
Kendall Wright has been a clutch performer for the Bears today, coming up with eight catches and 74 yards. Wright’s precise routes have constantly sliced through the middle of the Bengals defense, allowing for Trubisky to find success in that facet of the passing game.
Among the stellar catches Wright has made, this one might by the best:

The Bears have followed up their most productive offensive output in the first half with an impressive scoring drive on the team’s second possession of the second half.
