If he is replaced mid-game, it will be the 3rd time in 4 games the #Bears defense has seen more than one QB in a game.
Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune is calling this Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Chicago Bears’ most important once since the 2013 finale. In case you’ve forgotten, that week 17 contest against the Packers was essentially a playoff game with the winner taking the NFC North title. The Bears lost in heartbreaking fashion and fell to 8-8, and they haven’t won more than six games a season ever since.
A win on Sunday will put the Bears at 3-1 (and still in first place in the NFC North) heading into their bye.
Here’s everything you need to know about this Sunday’s game.
