After quarterback Mitchell Trubisky’s breakthrough game Sunday

CHICAGO (AP) — For most of the season Cody Parkey Jerseys Stitched , it’s been a solo act for Khalil Mack and the Chicago Bears‘ defense.the Bears’ defense and offense seem to be in sync.The defense made three interceptions and Mack continued pressuring the quarterback, while Trubisky threw for a career-high six touchdown passes in the Bears’ 48-10 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.“He came up and showed why he’s the guy,” Mack said about Trubisky, who completed 19 of 26 passes for 354 yards.It was supposed to be a matchup between the league’s top-ranked Bucs offense and the Bears’ best pass-rushing defense. Trubisky changed it.In improving to 3-1 for the first time since 2013, the Bears turned it into a rout by scoring touchdowns on four straight first-half possessions. All came on passes by Trubisky.Trubisky finished one TD pass short of the franchise mark set by Sid Luckman against the New York Giants in 1943. It’s also an NFL mark Luckman shares with seven others. The Bears racked up 483 yards in this one, nearly matching their record of 488 in that same game.“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.”Trubisky found five different receivers for TDs in the first half and the Bears led 38-3.“Our defense continues to play lights out,” Trubisky said. “It’s awesome to take some pressure off them and put some points on the board.”Mack made a strip-sack on Ryan Fitzpatrick in the first half. That gave him a sack and forced fumble in four straight games, the first time it’s been done since Robert Mathis for the Indianapolis Colts in 2005.Down big at the half, Bucs coach Dirk Koetter pulled Fitzpatrick and inserted Jameis Winston for his first action since a three-game suspension for a league conduct violation.Bears linebacker Danny Trevathan had one of Chicago’s three interceptions on a Winston pass that was deflected by Mack Youth Trey Burton Jerseys , and the defense made four more sacks after leading the league through three weeks with 14.“It feels good,” Trevathan said. “It feels like we’re a complete team.”Here are some things to consider from Chicago’s win over Tampa Bay:PICK-8: The Bears’ three interceptions — one each by Trevathan, Aaron Lynch and Eddie Jackson — brought the team’s season total to eight.They had eight in each of the last three full seasons, matching a franchise single-season low. So pass rush pressure is obviously having an effect.“To see the guys in the back end making plays, that’s what you want to see,” Mack said. “And being in a position to affect the quarterback to make them make those throws. It’s a good feeling, especially going into the bye.”DUSTING OFF: Winston shook off the rust when he came on for Fitzpatrick. Winston was 16 of 20 for 145 yards but had two picks along with one TD pass. Koetter stopped just short of saying who would start when the Bucs play again Oct. 14 at Atlanta, after their bye week.“Probably,” Koetter answered when asked if Winston would start. “But we’ll worry about that on another day.”PORES GALOREThe porous Bucs secondary has been hit hard by injuries, and it showed.Second-year safety Isaiah Johnson made his first career start, after Chris Conte went on IR and Jordan Whitehead suffered a shoulder injury.Cornerback Carlton Davis aggravated a groin strain during the game.“I mean, we couldn’t play zone. We couldn’t play man Trey Burton Jerseys Stitched ,” Koetter said.TOSSEDBears defensive tackle Akiem Hicks will be subjected to a fine and possible suspension after being ejected for pushing an official late in the first half.The incident occurred after Jackson intercepted a pass by Fitzpatrick. Hicks was involved in a scuffle away from the play with a Buccaneers player. Down judge Mike Carr had separated them when Hicks charged back and pushed the official, referee Jerome Boger told a pool reporter.“It was just a deliberate act, when he knew the official was there in-between,” Boger said.Hicks, who has three sacks this season, remained on the sideline for a few plays before leaving the field. He then threw his shoulder pads and jersey into the stands.SWEET SUCCESSThe Bear lined backup quarterback Chase Daniel up in the backfield twice alongside Trubisky in a trick formation. On one play, Trubisky threw a shovel pass to Taylor Gabriel for a 3-yard TD pass.Nagy said they gave the play a sweet name when practicing it during the week.“Willy Wonka,” he said. LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio was obviously thrilled when he found out about the trade for two-time All-Pro Khalil Mack last weekend.Fangio is eager to work with Mack after the Bears pulled off a blockbuster deal with Oakland on Saturday, jolting a franchise with four straight last-place finishes.The trade capped a busy offseason that saw the Bears mostly load up around quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. Fangio now has one of the best pass rushers in the NFL leading an already solid defense, not a bad consolation after he got passed over for the head coaching job in favor of Matt Nagy.The Bears suddenly seem like contenders for a playoff spot. But Fangio wasn’t about to plan any parades.He has plenty to do this week, working in a new superstar while scheming to face Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers in a primetime opener at Lambeau Field on Sunday night. It’s not clear how much Mack will play Duke Shelley Chicago Bears Jerseys , though he obviously figures to give the defense a huge boost whenever he steps on the field.“Well, I would say (Mack) could be a major help to us,” Fangio said. “Any time you get a player of his ability it can do nothing but help make you better, helps make the players around him better, but he’s been the same player in Oakland throughout his career, very well decorated and a lot of honors that he deserved and Oakland was never better than mid-20s in defense, so one guy doesn’t make a whole unit, as pretty evident by that.”The Raiders ranked in the 20s on defense in each of Mack’s four seasons. But he’s joining a unit that was 10th overall last year.Now, the Bears are adding a player with 40½ sacks, and nine forced fumbles in his four seasons. Mack also leads all players with 185½ quarterback pressures and ranks second with 68 tackles for loss since entering the league, according to SportRadar.It’s not hard for Fangio to envision more opportunities for Leonard Floyd on the opposite edge with opponents keying on Mack. He sees the same for the inside linebackers and the defensive backs, with quarterbacks under more pressure.“It’s a chain reaction Chicago Bears Jerseys 2019 , a domino effect and hopefully, that’s what we’ll see,” Fangio said.The question is how soon.Mack sat out the entire offseason and preseason with Oakland trying to get a long-term extension rather than play under the final year of his rookie contract. He wound up getting a six-year, $141 million extension that guarantees him $90 million and makes him the highest-paid defensive player in NFL history.“I think for Khalil and us in general it’s just going to be knowing where he’s at mentally with Vic’s system and then understanding where he is physically and matching the two together,” Nagy said. “We’re not going to know really until we get into it and we just kind of gauge it.”Like Mack, rookie inside linebacker Roquan Smith is playing catch-up. The No. 8 overall draft pick held out the first three weeks of training camp before agreeing to a four-year contract that guarantees him $18.5 million. He has dealt with a tight left hamstring the past three weeks. And Floyd is getting used to playing with a casted club on his broken right hand.“These guys are very talented,” Mack said. “You see the skillsets that they have. We’re only trying to get better. That’s the only thing I’m asking from the group, that we all get better and hold each other accountable.
