Mitchell Trubisky hasn't given Chicago Bears fans much to cheer about this season. After a 12-4 finish in 2018, Chicago started out this season 6-6 and Trubisky's lackluster play was widely considered one of the reason for the Bears' slow start.

However, Trubisky delivered arguably his best game of the season, and one of the best of his career, against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 14. Trubisky threw for 244 yards and three touchdowns, and he added 63 rushing yards with another score on the ground.

This epic performance makes Trubisky, Drew Brees and Josh Allen the only quarterbacks to have multiple games with at least three passing TDs and one rushing TD over the last two seasons.

In fact, this continues an impressive trend for Trubisky, as he quietly played really well against the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving. Over the last two weeks, Trubisky is now averaging 291.0 passing yards and 3.0 passing TDs per contest.

The Bears are still unlikely to make the postseason, but if Trubisky can maintain this level of play over the final three weeks of the season, Chicago certainly still has a shot.
