Don’t get me wrong, it was his first game of his career. Bears QB Mitch Trubisky has officially started his NFL career. He played Monday night becoming just the fourth QB in the last thirty years to debut on a Monday night.
He walked into a home game against the Vikings and walked out with his first ever loss. In the game he went 12 for 25 with 128 yards, a touchdown, and an interception. That’s a rough start to this supposed start of the new franchise QB’s career.
His first career touchdown pass came on a 20 yard pass down the field to Tight End Zach Miller. His interception came by Harrison Smith. Against this defense, I would call this a pretty good first game.
He needs to get more confident behind his team and get more experience with his receivers. There were also a few bobbled passes that ended up dropped that were not his fault. He looked like your typical rookie playing in his first game. There’s no reason to give up hope on him yet.
