The quarterback fell just one touchdown short of the franchise record, which was set by Sid Luckman against the New York Giants in 1943. Luckman is one of eight players in NFL history to throw seven touchdowns in a game. Trubisky's big day helped the Bears compile 483 yards of offense, which was five short of the franchise record of 488 from a 51-20 win over the Tennessee Titans in 2012.
Before Sunday, Trubisky had never thrown more than two touchdowns in an NFL game, but he reached five by halftime. That fell just one short of the most in a half since 1991, which is held by Aaron Rodgers from a rout of the Bears at Lambeau Field in November 2014. The second-year quarterback completed 19-of-26 passes, as the Bears moved their first-place record to 3-1.
The big win at Soldier Field also puts out the "Fitzmagic" for a second straight game, as the Buccaneers dropped to 2-2 on the season. Ryan Fitzpatrick threw just 9-of-18 for 126 yards, this after throwing for 400 yards in three straight games, becoming the first in NFL history to do that. He was sacked twice, including getting sacked and stripped by Khalil Mack, who became the first player to have a strip sack and forced fumble in four straight games since Robert Mathis since 2005.
Chicago got big days from a couple different weapons on offense, including Tarik Cohen putting together a career-high 121 receiving yards and a touchdown. Taylor Gabriel added a career-best 104 yards and two touchdowns, while Trey Burton and Allen Robinson each had touchdown grabs on the day. Chicago has now won three in a row for the first time since 2013, as they move on to a bye week before visiting the Miami Dolphins. The Buccaneers will look to get back over .500 after their bye week against the Atlanta Falcons.
