Game Notes
It's rare you see how one player can impact the performance of the entire team. Khalil Mack is one of those guys. He is fun to watch! The constant pressure he is able to put on opposing teams is incredible. The Bears got a steal. Offense still has some work to do but they did enough. Once Mitchell Trubisky gets a full grasp of the playbook, he will be able to play faster.

Comments on Coaching
Nagy with his first career win as a head coach and for the Chicago Bears. Could be more aggressive on offense. Love some of the creative calls in his playbook. Understands the strengths of the team. I don't think we have even seen the first page of his playbook. Nagy's got plays for days.

Game Notes on Offense
Trubisky played decent. He can still execute better on several plays. Did not take many shots down the field and when he did he was inefficient. His mobility helps him extend plays. Receiving core can be more productive. Running game is their strength. Great blocking schemes with Howard's patience is a solid combination.

Analysis Notes
An offense that likes to march down the field rather than big explosive plays. Chewing the clock and owning time of possession is definitely part of their philosophy.

Game Notes on Defense
It all starts with the front 7 creating pressure on the quarterback. They do not have the most talented secondary but they are able to make plays with havoc the front 7 is able to create. Complementary defense.

Notes
Fun to see the Chicago Bears have an aggressive defense again. It is good for football. Potential to lead the league in turnovers created.

Play of the Game
Prince Amukamara's pick six sealed the deal. All the pass rush through out the game sped up Wilson on that play and allowed Prince to jump the route.
