After having his best day as a professional against the Detroit Lions on November 11, Chicago Bears’ quarterback Mitchell Trubisky picked up his second award of the week.

By virtue of fan vote, Trubisky was named the FedEx Air Player of the Week one day after the NFL named him the NFC Offensive Player of the Week.

FedEx will donate $2,000 to the USO in Trubisky’s name through FedEx Cares.

Trubisky beat out Ben Roethlisberger of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Jared Goff of the Los Angeles Rams to win his second Fed Ex Air award this year. Against the Lions he completed 23 of 30 passes, for a career high 355 yards, with 3 touchdowns, and a 148.6 passer rating. He didn’t turn the ball over, and he added 18 yards on 3 carries with a touchdown for good measure.

He commanded his offense to a 34-22 win against Detroit, and that was Chicago’s first against the Lions since 2016, and their first victory against the NFC North since that same season.

Next up for Trubisky and the Bears is a Sunday Night battle that will leave the winner standing atop their division.
