After his disappointing performance against the Detroit Lions, many were left wondering if the Chicago Bears made the right decision in taking Mitchell Trubisky as the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. According to Gary Davenport of Bleacher Report, there were plenty of questions about Trubisky turning into the franchise quarterback that the Bears have envisioned after throwing three interceptions in their 20-10 loss to the Lions that dropped them to 4-10 on the season. “As things stand, using the words ‘franchise,’ ‘quarterback’ and ‘Trubisky’ in the same sentence feels almost mean,” said Campbell, adding that it’s fair to wonder if Trubisky's name belongs near the word "good" in a sentence.

During the 2017 NFL Draft, the Bears pulled off a surprise when they moved up from No. 3 to No. 2 to take Trubisky. The Bears traded their No. 3 overall pick, a third-round pick and a fourth-round pick in 2017 and an additional third-round pick in the 2018 draft to the San Francisco 49ers to get Trubisky, believing that he could be the team’s franchise quarterback.

Trubisky struggled versus Lions

Against the Lions, Trubisky completed just 31-of-46 passes for 314 yards and a touchdown with three picks for a quarterback rating of 15.8. Trubisky’s disappointing performance came after he posted back-to-back quarterback ratings of more than 100 in Weeks 13 and 14. In their 15-14 loss to the 49ers, Trubisky completed 12-of-15 passes for 102 yards and a score for an impressive rating of 117.2.

In the Bears’ 33-7 win over the Cincinnati Bengals, the rookie signal-caller completed 25-of-32 passes for 271 yards and a touchdown and ran for another score for a rating of 112.4. As a starter, the 23-year-old Trubisky led the Bears to three wins after he took over from Mike Glennon as the starter after the team got off to a 1-3 start.

In 10 games, Trubisky completed 162-of-271 passes for 1,822 yards and seven touchdowns and as many interceptions. He also ran for 33 yards and a score for the Bears.

Stafford shines for Lions

Matthew Stafford completed 25-of-33 passes for 237 yards and two touchdowns as the Lions kept their playoff hopes alive with an 8-6 mark.

Marvin Jones Jr. caught three passes for 85 yards while Eric Ebron and TJ Jones each caught a touchdown pass from Stafford. Theo Riddick ran eight times for 49 yards while Matt Prater made two field goals for the Lions, who are currently eighth overall in the NFC.
