Mitchell Trubisky Threw A Career-high Six Touchdown Passes - Sport
Status: OFFLINE


one shy of the NFL record 鈥?and the NFC North-leading Chicago Bears pounded the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 48-10 on Sunday.The Bears (3-1) won their third straight with Trubisky delivering the sort of breakout performance general manager Ryan Pace envisioned when he traded up a spot to draft the prized quarterback with the No. 2 overall pick last year.He finished one TD pass short of the franchise mark set by Sid Luckman against the New York Giants in 1943. Luckman is tied with seven others in NFL history to throw seven TD passes in a game. The Bears also racked up 483 yards in this one Matt Gay Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jersey , nearly matching their record of 488 in that same game, on the way to their highest point total since 51-20 victory over Tennessee in 2012.“It’s very humbling because you know the history of the Bears and how many great players have come through this organization,” Trubisky said. “For me, you’re just trying to create your own legacy and try to make a path. … I realize how special this organization is. It’s awesome to make history and be a part of it.”The defense did its part, harassing Ryan Fitzpatrick before Jameis Winston took over to start the second half. And the Bears (3-1) matched their longest run since a 3-0 start in 2013.Trubisky had never thrown for more than two touchdowns in a game. But he threw for five in the first half alone as Chicago grabbed a 38-3 lead. The only other player with more in a single half since 1991 was Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers with six in the first two quarters against the Bears in a romp at Lambeau Field in November 2014.Trubisky had no trouble finding wide-open receivers against a struggling secondary, completing 19 of 26 passes for 354 yards.“Hopefully, this is a day where we look back down the road here,” Bears coach Matt Nagy said, “and say, ‘Remember that day where he had that great game?’ And it helped catapult him into being a great quarterback.”Khalil Mack had a strip-sack in the first half against Fitzpatrick. That made him the first player with a sack and forced fumble in four straight games since Robert Mathis for Indianapolis in 2005. He also appeared to tip the ball as Winston released a pass that Danny Trevathan picked off on the first drive of the second half.Coming off a tight loss to Pittsburgh on Monday night, the Buccaneers (2-2) were simply overwhelmed in this one.“We should fire every person that was on that field today, starting with me. That was horrific,” coach Dirk Koetter said.Koetter said Winston “probably” did enough to regain the starting job, but he wouldn’t quite commit to that.Tampa Bay decided to stick with Fitzpatrick as the starting quarterback even though Winston was back from a three-game suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy.But after becoming the first player in NFL history to top 400 yards passing in three consecutive games 2019 Matt Gay Jersey , he was 9 of 18 for 126 yards and got sacked two times. Winston was 16 for 20 with 145 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.Chicago’s Tarik Cohen had a career-high 121 yards receiving and a touchdown. Taylor Gabriel had a personal-best 104 yards receiving to go with two TD catches.Trey Burton caught a 39-yard touchdown on the game’s opening drive and finished with 86 yards.Allen Robinson caught a 14-yarder late in the first quarter 鈥?his first TD since signing with Chicago in the offseason.NATIONAL ANTHEMThere were no obvious protests by either team.INJURIESBuccaneers: TE O.J. Howard left in the first half because of a knee injury. … CB Carlton Davis III aggravated a groin injury. … DT Vita Vea, the No. 12 overall draft pick this year, was active for the first time after being sidelined by a calf injury.Bears: LB Sam Acho left in the first half with a pectoral injury.UP NEXTBuccaneers: Have bye week. At Atlanta on Oct. 14.Bears: Have bye week. At Miami on Oct. 14.Mike Evans’ contract is a better deal than Odell Beckham Jr.’s deal When the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the New York Giants drafted Mike Evans and Odell Beckham Jr., they were excited about the futures of their newest stars. Both futures came to fruition quickly as they hit the ground running in year one and never looked back.Since 2014, Evans is sixth in the NFL in receiving yards (4,579) and OBJ is right behind him at seventh (4,442). Beckham Jr. is eighth in the league in receptions with 313, Evans just cracks the top ten with 309. When it comes to touchdowns, Evans is seventh (32) to Beckham Jr.’s second (3icon_cool.gif. And for those into advanced metrics, Evans has graded out on average at an 84.78 while Beckham Jr. has graded at 83.78 - just a point shy of Evans - according to Pro Football Focus. It’s easy to see why they were paid hefty contracts before the season started. By outperforming their rookie contracts right off the bat, their respective franchises deemed them worthy of a payday before they hit the open market and became even more expensive. Both players’ production is very similar, but it’s pretty obvious that if OBJ doesn’t miss time in 2017 then his numbers would be higher than Evans’ across the board. But that doesn’t mean that OBJ is eons better than Evans, it’s quite the opposite. They are completely different players that make their hay in different ways. The size difference between the two is just the beginning. OBJ is one of the league’s top playmakersJonathan Dyer-USA TODAY SportsThere is also another subtle contrast and that would be their paychecks. On Monday Matt Gay Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jersey , Beckham Jr. was signed to a five-year extension that maxes out at $95 million and includes a total guarantee of $65 million. Back in March, Evans signed a five-year, $82.5 million extension that included $55 million guaranteed. Beckham Jr.’s injury history is the biggest issue with his extension, but it’s also a positive when it comes to evaluating the talented receiver’s career. Despite missing 16 games in four seasons, Beckham Jr. has managed to produce at an elite level. It remains to be seen how he comes back from his broken ankle and if he doesn’t return to his old form then the Giants may be in trouble. Regardless of the injury, if he doesn’t live up to this deal then it will be tough for New York to cut ties with him. The same can’t be said for Evans and the Bucs. According to spotrac.com, even though his contract contains $55 million in guaranteed money, the Bucs have a chance to rid themselves of Evans before March of 2020 with no penalty. It’s the same scenario in 2021 and beyond - if the Bucs don’t want him, they don’t have to keep him in order to save their bottom line. As they say, the devil is in the details and that certainly seems to be the case with Beckham Jr.’s contract. Sure, he doesn’t take much of a cap hit in year one like Evans, but the Giants are more invested in the long term. Beckham Jr.’s cap hit supersedes Evans’ by $3.75 million on average each year after 2019 and it’s impossible to cut him without running into dead money.Where the Bucs’ and Giants’ upper management further departs are the bonuses. I’m not too sure as to what the Giants’ cap situation was before this deal was made, but they had to prorate the signing bonus over the duration of the contract, whereas the Bucs were a bit craftier. Instead of prorating money Sean Bunting Jersey , Tampa Bay decided to lump Evans’ guaranteed money into a 2018 roster bonus and a fully-guaranteed 2019 salary. Because unless something absolutely drastic happens, there is no way Evans doesn’t make this roster next year. Evans even makes more money over the short-term than Beckham Jr., which is good for Evans considering the fact that teams often backload contracts so they can tear up - or restructure - a player’s contract as they get older. This also gives Evans more bargaining power towards the end of his current deal, assuming he continues the pace that he is currently on. Since Beckham Jr.’s salary will still be very high over his remaining years, the Giants could use that against him as he attempts to negotiate a new deal - which is usually a recipe for a headache. Beckham Jr.’s behavior is an added risk factor to his contract, on top of the injury history. Evans hasn’t been a saint himself either - see Marshon Lattimore - but it’s safe to say he has kept himself out of the spotlight far less than Beckham Jr. has been able to manage. Evans is primed for a big 2018Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY SportsAnd what happens when Eli Manning decides to retire? The Bucs have a tiny bit of a question mark with Jameis Winston, but he’s not planning to retire any time soon. Will Beckham Jr. mesh with his new, eventual quarterback the way he has with Manning?Even though that’s more of a big-picture question/scenario, it feels like it should be considered when paying this amount of money to a player that you hope want to have on your team in the future. Tampa Bay has put themselves in a very good position contract-wise while managing to pay one of their best players exactly what they deserve. While Beckham Jr. deserves what he is making, it’s not as good a deal as what the Bucs gave Evans - both in the short and long term. Regardless, now it’s up to both superstars to go out there and do what they’re paid to do.
