Fitzmagic has now bled over to the Chicago Bears. With Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers taking on the Bears, it wasn’t the Bucs’ veteran quarterback that stole the show.
Instead, it was all about second-year Bears starter Mitchell Trubisky. Having struggled through the first three games of the season, the former top-five pick dominated to the tune of five touchdown passes in the first 25 minutes of the game.
Trubisky playing much better in the 1st quarter today. Great throw to Robinson for 6. pic.twitter.com/nYPAjjpBxq

Mitch Trubisky had never thrown for more than 2 TDs over a 2 game stretch. He has 4 touchdown passes in less than 2 quarters today. #Bears

Trubisky .. damn, he might go for 8 TD passes today. OK probably not, but he's looking good.
