There is a quarterback controversy out in Chicago, or maybe it has been decided already. Nick Foles will start in Week 4 after leading the Chicago Bears to a huge come-from-behind win over the Atlanta Falcons.
Foles entered the game in relief of Mitchell Trubisky in the second half. Trubisky was named the starter prior to the season but was clearly on a short leash. The Bears decided to make the move despite the 2-0 start with their former No. 2 overall pick under center. Foles came in and threw or 188 yards with three touchdowns and one interception.
The former Super Bowl MVP was traded to the Bears after one year in Jacksonville on a terrible contract. The Bears are now 3-0 and this is something that was not expected.
The only issue is, will Chicago stick with Foles when he begins to struggle? They seemed to have tied their hands early because it is difficult to keep switching quarterbacks week in and week out. This performance from Foles is extremely important.
The Bears need a consistent performance against a talented defense in Indianapolis in Week 4. This will make their decision seem much wiser than it might have been. Here are three predictions for Foles against the Colts.
