Chicago Bears’ Trubisky is NFC Offensive Player of the Week
Bears QB Mitch Trubisky is the NFC Offensive Player of the Week after throwing for a career-best 355 yards in the 34-22 victory over the Lions Sunday.
Trubisky completed 23 of 30 for three touchdowns and ran for a fourth score, as the Bears won their third straight game for the second time this season and remained in first place in the NFC North at 6-3.
Trubisky’s 148.6 passer rating vs. Detroit was his second highest of the season and the fourth time in the last six games he’s been over 102.0. His four 300-yard passing performances this season are tied for the most by a Bears quarterback in a single season, along with Brian Hoyer (2016), Jay Cutler (2014) and Billy Wade (1962).
Over the last six games, Trubisky has 1,969 yards of total offense, an average of 328.2 yards per game, and he has thrown 17 touchdown passes and just four interceptions for a 114.8 rating. His 320 rushing yards are second among quarterbacks behind the Panthers’ Cam Newton, who has 352.
Trubisky is the first Bear to win NFC Offensive Player of the Week honors since Jordan Howard in Week Eight of the 2016 season.
