Monday Night Football: Minnesota Vikings vs. Chicago Bears Preview and Prediction

Mitchell Trubisky

Mitchell Trubisky

It's a big stage for Mitchell Trubisky's first career NFL start. The No. 2 overall draft pick out of North Carolina gets to show the nation on "Monday Night Football" what he's made out of, and hopefully interject some life into Chicago's offense.

Jerick McKinnon: Running Back Rankings Week 7

Trubisky had a completion percentage of nearly 68 percent in the preseason to go with three touchdowns and no interceptions. He takes over after Mike Glennon had another lackluster performance last Thursday against the Packers. Perhaps it's good timing for head coach John Fox, who had some extra time to craft a game plan that his rookie signal-caller can handle. Trubisky's wide receiver and tight end mix is not exactly going to scare anyone so that makes running backs Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen even more important. The Bears' run game has kept teams honest with Howard doing the dirty work and Cohen being the pass catcher.
