It seems as though Mitchell Trubisky forgot how to football on Thanksgiving.Maybe he was just thinking about the turkey and side dishes he was planning to have after Thursday afternoon’s Bears-Lions matchup, but the Chicago QB seemed to actively avoid a first down in the closing stages of the second quarter.

A few potential explanations:— Still hobbled by injuries, he didn’t want to get smoked by either DB closing down on the play.— He tried to get out of bounds to stop the clock.It was seemingly the living embodiment of your controller dying while playing “Madden” and making an unexpected left turn because of it.last_img read more
