One of the most remarkable streaks in the NFL is that the Chicago Bears haven’t had a first-team All-Pro quarterback since Johnny Lujack in 1950. Lujack threw four touchdowns with 21 interceptions that season. The game was a little different back then.
Over seven decades, odds are you’d stumble on one quarterback who spent one season as the best in the NFL. Not the Bears. They turned back to Mitchell Trubisky on Sunday night. Bears fans who had been clamoring for Trubisky to replace Nick Foles were quickly reminded why Trubisky was benched in the first place.
Trubisky threw a bad interception on a deep pass and lost a fumble that was returned for a touchdown in a brutal first half. The Bears fell behind 27-3 and lost 41-25. The Packers are 8-3. The Bears, who started 5-1 this season, fell to 5-6.
