Chicago sure could get used to Nick Foles winning football games

The first three weeks of the NFL season has been a wild one for Bears fans to endure. They have gone through every single emotion in a three hour span to start out the season. Look at it like being on an airplane that is heading for a tailspin, only to have the pilot land everyone safe and sound at the very last minute. Nick Foles suddenly is that pilot, and the hope is he can have the Bears soaring to new heights.

Mitch Trubisky struggles perhaps for the last time

The Bears went into halftime down to the Atlanta Falcons 16-10. Fans weren’t exactly happy and only down six points. A lot of this had to do with Mitch Trubisky missing a wide open Anthony Miller for a go ahead touchdown just before half. This would prove to be a big turn of events for the Bears starting quarterback, as he would come out of halftime and throw an interception on the first drive of the third quarter. Head coach Matt Nagy had seen enough of his inconsistent quarterback, and turned things over to backup Nick Foles.

Nick Foles comes into the game, visor and all

Seeing Nick Foles come into the game had a lot of Bears on the edge of their seat with anticipation and joy. He came in with his visor over his helmet, looking like the hero known as Robocop. He would soon become the hero of the game, and perhaps the rest of the season. Foles came in the second series of the third quarter down 26-10. Time wasn’t on Chicago’s side by any means, and by the time the fourth quarter hit Chicago only had a .4% chance to win the game. Someone must have forgot to tell the Bears the odds weren’t in there favor, because they came out of the fourth quarter firing on all cylinders. Foles would find Jimmy Graham for a short touchdown pass to the right side of the field. The defense came up big, forcing Atlanta into a field goal, which would be missed.

The offense took advantage of this opportunity and good field position, as Foles found Allen Robinson for a touchdown. Chicago’s star receiver broke tackles and went down the left sideline. The next series would cement Foles as the starting quarterback moving forward. Down three points, he would tell wide receiver Anthony Miller that if Atlanta came with a full out blitz, to just run to L in the Atlanta end zone, and he would deliver a somewhat stiff ball to the receiver. Atlanta ended up bringing the blitz. Foles stood in the pocket, delivering a pass exactly where he told his receiver he would. Miller caught the go ahead touchdown, and Chicago would leave Atlanta with a 30-26 win, advancing to 3-0.

Da Bears have every reason to believe they can make some noise in the playoffs in 2020! BEARDOWN!
