Mitchell Trubisky's Pro Football Reference Page Gets Hilarious Update
The Chicago Bears' Wild Card matchup against the New Orleans Saints made headlines not for being a close game, but for the fact that it offered an alternative broadcast on Nickelodeon. The Nick broadcast was kids-centric and full of slime-filled fun.
Nick handed out an NVP -- Nickelodeon Valuable Player -- at the end of the Bears-Saints game, and it was taken home by none other than QB Micthell Trubisky. To celebrate his big win, Trubisky's Pro Football Reference page got a hilarious update.
PFR is known for highlighting players' achievements on their pages, like MVP or Pro Bowl honors. Now Trubisky's NVP win is immortalized on his page, which is incredible.
The Bears QB captured the NVP with 199 passing yards and 1 touchdown against the Saints. New Orleans took a 7-3 lead into halftime before scoring 14 points in the second half to seal Chicago's fate, eventually winning 21-9.
Despite his NVP win, Trubisky's future with the Bears is still incredibly murky. The QB was benched in favor of Nick Foles for part of the season before earning his starting role back. As an upcoming free agent, it's unclear if he showed enough for Chicago to believe they can contend with him as their quarterback and want to bring him back.
