The Bears parted ways with Trubisky during the offseason, finally putting an end to an ugly four years in Chicago. The Buffalo Bills swooped in and added the former No. 2 overall pick, making him the backup to star quarterback Josh Allen.
Trubisky ran the Bills offense on Saturday in Allen’s absence. It’s only fitting he got the opportunity to face his former team, the Chicago Bears. Trubisky made the most of the opportunity.
The former North Carolina star was phenomenal in the Bills-Bears preseason game on Saturday. He helped the Bills score 13 points in the first quarter – a feat he accomplished just twice as quarterback of the Bears.

Sure, it’s just a preseason game. But Mitchell Trubisky was making throws on Saturday he rarely made during his four-year stint with the Bears. The Bills might have gotten a steal here.
Trubisky dealing! He finds Jake Kumerow to polish off a an 11-play, 64-yard drive.

It’s safe to say Bears fans couldn’t believe their eyes on Saturday. It can’t feel good to watch a quarterback who was previously deemed a “bust” carve up your own defense.

Trubisky lighting it up. Andy Dalton can’t get a first down. Robert Quinn contract looking worse and worse. Fields still on the bench.

I love that the Bills coaching staff is letting Trubisky torch his former team. Preseason or not, that stuff matters inside the locker room.

The Chicago Bears – losing at the hands of Mitch Trubisky since 2017.

The Bills let Mitchell Trubisky air it out against his former team, which speaks volume about Buffalo’s culture in the locker room. It’s pretty awesome they set him up for success on Saturday.
The Bears, meanwhile, were horrendous this afternoon. Andy Dalton started the entire first half with rookie Justin Fields watching from the sideline. This could be just the start of another horrendous year in Chicago.
