The first red zone trip in the Bears’ game against the Jets resulted in a touchdown for the good guys:

Anthony Miller put beat some helpless Jets defender and Mitch Trubisky completed a back-shoulder throw to give the Bears their first points of the second half. It was a much-needed score in a game that has been a slog from the get-go.
We’ve been waiting for Trubisky and Miller to hook up since the rookie receiver came off the injury report after suffering a shoulder injury in Week 3. So to see that connection pay off in a touchdown that extends the Bears lead is a thing of beauty. Now, if they could only get on the same page on deep throws.
Trubisky’s struggles have put the Bears behind the 8-ball a bit. QB1 has completed just 10 of 22 passes for 146 yards. He has two touchdowns and a 97.9 rating at this point, but that really doesn’t tell the story of this game. Perhaps some second-half adjustments are on the way.
