It’s an NFC North showdown on Monday Night Football this week. The Chicago Bears host the Minnesota Vikings, with Mitchell Trubisky making his NFL debut at 8:30 p.m. ET on ESPN (WatchESPN).
The Bears selected Trubisky as their quarterback of the future at No. 2 overall, but put him on ice behind Mike Glennon to start the season. Glennon proceeded to commit eight turnovers in just four games as the Bears started off 1-3, convincing John Fox to start Trubisky following a Thursday night blowout loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 4.
It’s debatable how good Trubisky will be after starting only 13 games at the college level, but he’d be hard-pressed to do worse than Glennon.
