Prior to the season, most people probably had the Green Bay Packers or Minnesota Vikings winning the NFC North. But the Chicago Bears may be changing people’s opinions with their high level of play over the first four weeks of the 2018 NFL season.
After four weeks, the Bears find themselves in first place in the NFC North with a 3-1 record. And while two of those wins came over the less-than-stellar Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals, Chicago’s only loss was a 24-23 defeat at the hands of Aaron Rodgers and the Packers in Week 1.
As for Chicago’s latest win, it came in a 48-10 shellacking of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. The victory was even more important because of the fact that it came in the Bears’ final game before their bye week. Not only that, but it came against a Tampa Bay team that had exceeded expectations in the season’s first three games.
Second-year quarterback Mitch Trubisky didn’t exactly set the world on fire over the first three weeks, but he was phenomenal on Sunday. He didn’t throw an interception for the first time since Week 1 and he recorded the first multi-touchdown performance of his NFL career (more on that later).
On defense, the Bears recorded four sacks and three interceptions, continuing their impressive play on that side of the ball. And running back Tarik Cohen added the best performance of his career as well in support of Trubisky’s nearly flawless outing.
Here’s a look at the three best performances from the Bears’ Week 4 win over the Buccaneers.
