It looks like we’re starting to see Mitch Trubisky make some strides in the offense. And while I’m a big believer in the concept of walking before you run, the Bears’ passing offense has hit the ground running:

Allen Robinson hauled in his first touchdown as a member of the Bears, which extended the team’s lead to 14-0 late in the first quarter. The throw from Trubisky was a perfect strike that capped a 3-for-3 drive in which he threw for 33 yards. Trubisky had struggled to put touchdowns up in the red zone, so it was really encouraging to see a composed quarterback drop a dime to Robinson for a red zone score.
Three drives into the game, Trubisky is 5-for-7 for 77 yards (11.0 yards per attempt!) with two touchdowns and a 147.0 passer rating. This might be the best start Trubisky has had in a single game since his NFL career started last October. But because a potent Buccaneers offense lurks, he might need to keep this up for the Bears to secure a victory.
