Mitch Trubisky has had a rough second-half, but the Chicago Bears aren’t quite out of this one just yet:
Football University alum Trey Burton (@TreyBurton8) scores to keep the Bears alive.

Trubisky fired an 11-yard touchdown to Trey Burton to complete a six-play, 63-yard drive to pull the Bears to within 38-31 with 4:13 left in the fourth quarter. It’s been a rough second-half for Trubisky, who has thrown two gut-wrenching interceptions that have thwarted potential scoring drives. But he has been near perfect when throwing to Burton, who has nine catches for 126 yards. Burton has needed every catch and yard as Bears receivers have been neutralized by Patriots defensive backs.
To be sure, none of this would be possible without Kyle Fuller being Johnny-on-the-spot with this timely interception:

The Bears are at a point where they could use another defensive stop. New England is driving and picking up chunks of yards to keep the ball away from Chicago’s offense and prevent a potential late-game drive. It ain’t over ’til it’s over. And technically, it’s not over yet.
