Buffalo Bills quarterback Mitchell Trubisky's run with the Chicago Bears didn't go the way that he or the team had planned over the course of four seasons. Fast forward to Saturday when Trubisky returned to Chicago as a member of the Bills, leading Buffalo to a dominant 41-15 victory over his former team.
Trubisky told reporters after the game that all he wanted to do was play well against the Bears in his return. Considering how Chicago essentially gave up on him as their No. 1 QB, it makes sense that he'd want to have the best revenge possible. Fortunately, that's exactly how it turned out for Trubisky and the Bills.

Even though Saturday's win doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of things, it allowed Trubisky to get the last laugh. He knew a lot of people would be watching the matchup, which gave him the motivation that he needed to succeed.
"I knew people would be talking about it and hyping it up, but it was just important for me to come out here and do my job and show my teammates that I could play ball."- Mitchell Trubisky
Trubisky ended the victory over the Bears going 20-for-28 on passing attempts and finishing with 221 passing yards and a touchdown in the first half. While some may chalk it up to it just being a preseason game, it's important that he did play that away against some of Chicago's starters on defense.
Nevertheless, $258 million gunslinger Josh Allen is undoubtedly Buffalo's starting quarterback, however, the Bills coaching staff can rest easy knowing that Trubisky is likely one of the better backup QBs in the NFL today.
