Vikings defense rattles Trubisky
Mitchell Trubisky may be having an impressive season in his second year as the Bears quarterback, but the Vikings’ defense is about to make his Sunday night full of misery.
All four members of Minnesota’s starting defensive line are expected to be healthy this week, which doesn’t bode well for Trubisky. During the games in which the Vikings had all four starting defensive lineman active this season, the defense is averaging 21 quarterback pressures.
Unsurprisingly, Trubisky has not performed as well when he has been pressured this year.

When he has had pressure in his face this season, the young Chicago quarterback has only completed 46.9 percent of his passes, averaged 6.5 yards per attempt, thrown two touchdowns and an interception, and been sacked 18 times.
The Bears’ offensive line has performed well this year, so getting enough pressure to make a difference may be difficult for Minnesota on Sunday. But at the same time, Chicago hasn’t faced a defensive line as talented as the Vikings’ yet this season either.
With Minnesota’s pass rush disturbing him for most of the night, expect Trubisky to make some head-scratching decisions and turn the ball over at least three times.
