Mitch Trubisky was significantly more accurate in Sunday’s 24-10 win over the Jets than he has been in previous weeks, and that’s something his pass-catching teammates are saying they could get used to.
“Mitch only over- or under-threw us on about half his passes this game,” said WR Anthony Miller who was able to catch three of the seven passes thrown his way, including one for a TD. “That’s way better than what we’ve seen so far this season. It’s refreshing.”
Speedy RB Tarik Cohen was responsible for nearly one-third of Trubisky’s passing yards, all of which came on a beautifully designed screen pass that went for 70 yards and the Bears first TD. Trubisky’s other two pass attempts to Cohen weren’t close.
“It’s great when Mitch can get the ball in the general vicinity of his intended receiver,” said Cohen. “I’m usually the fastest guy on the field, but when he misses his guy by 10 yards, that’s a ball not even the Human Joystick can get to.”
