Looks like Los Angeles Rams will face Mitch Trubisky after all in Week 14
All signs point to Mitch Trubisky being ready to go for the Chicago Bears when they face the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday night during Week 14.
With four games remaining until the playoffs, the Los Angeles Rams are back in the driver’s seat when it comes to earning the top seed in the NFC playoff picture, although they still have plenty of work to do from now until the end of December.
For starters, the Rams need to make sure they come out on the winning end of Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears, who currently sit on top of the NFC North at the moment, and sit in the No. 3 seed.
The Bears may still be in the hunt for a first-round bye heading into Week 14, but the team certainly hurt themselves last weekend by suffering a surprise loss on the road to the New York Giants.
Realistically when seeing how the two teams compare on paper, this seemed like a favorable win for Chicago, which is why it was so frustrating to see them come up on the losing end.
At least this time around against the Rams, the Bears will be in better position on the offensive side of the football since Mitch Trubisky is expected to return after missing the previous two games with a shoulder injury.
Back on Thanksgiving, Chicago was able to get by with a win over the Detroit Lions after Chase Daniel put together a surprising performance with 230 passing yards and two touchdowns, but unfortunately he took a step back in Week 13 in a loss to the New York Giants.
Seeing how Alec Ogletree picked off Daniel and returned it for a touchdown within the first minute of the game, this sums up the kind of afternoon this was for the Bears last Sunday. But with Trubisky back, Chicago should be in much better shape on offense.
Of course, just because Trubisky is expected to be back to his old ways doesn’t mean it’s going to be all easy for the Bears quarterback when seeing how the Rams’ defense is coming off a strong outing in the team’s win over the Detroit Lions.
Not to mention, when looking at how Aaron Donald already has 16.5 sacks, Trubisky will most likely see all sorts of pressure throughout the contest.
Keeping Trubisky in check will be one of a few key factors for Los Angeles when it comes to seeing if they have what it takes to win, and lock up a first-round bye after clinching the NFC West last weekend.
It certainly won’t be easy when seeing some of his previous performances over the last couple of months, but maybe if the Rams are lucky, Trubisky will look a little rusty from sitting out the previous two weeks to give them an extra advantage.
