Bears bench Mitchell Trubisky for Nick Foles against Atlanta Falcons

It’s Nick Foles time for the Chicago Bears.

Foles replaced starting quarterback Mitchell Trubisky in the second half of Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons after Trubisky threw an interception with the Bears down 23-10.

Trubisky entered the 2020 season on a short leash after winning the starting quarterback during a training camp battle with Foles, who was brought in to Chicago this offseason to add competition.

Trubisky helped the Bears jump out to a 2-0 start to the season — including a comeback win in the opener against the Lions — but the Chicago offense has been lacking in September and Trubisky’s limitations were on display Sunday.

Outside of a few completions to wide receiver Allen Robinson, Trubisky stuggled against the Falcons and left the game 13 of 22 for 128 yards with on TD pass and the aforementioned interception on what looks like his final pass of the afternoon in which he appeared to misread the defensive coverage and threw the ball right to Atlanta cornerback Darqueze Dennard.
