Mitch Trubisky, who threw seven touchdown passes in 12 games during his rookie season, is inching toward matching that total in this one game:

Ah, the joy of six.
Trubisky led the Bears on a four-play, 60-yard drive that ended with Taylor Gabriel hauling in his second score of the day. And once again, it was another red zone score. That’s four touchdowns in four red zone trips for an offense that had four offensive touchdowns coming into its Week 4 matchup. This touchdown trip bumped Trubisky’s numbers to 16 of 23 (69.6%), for 320 yards, and a 151.7 rating.
The rout is on as the Bears lead 45-3 behind a career game by Trubisky, who now has his second ever 300-yard passing game – and first since 300-yard passing game since Week 15 in 2017. There isn’t anything Trubisky hasn’t done to lead his team to victory. Now, it’s up to the Bears to close out the fourth quarter on a high note.
