Not only is this the all-important third (technically fourth) preseason game for the Chicago Bears, but it’s also a game that will pit teacher vs. pupil as Andy Reid, head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs, will match wits against his protege, Bears head coach Matt Nagy.
The Nagy vs Reid storyline will get plenty of mention, but the Mitchell Trubisky vs. Patrick Mahomes narrative will get a few mentions as well. Both second year quarterbacks saw their respective teams trade up in the 2017 NFL Draft to acquire them.
What will you guys be watching for when these two teams play on Saturday?
