Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky has been battered, bruised and beaten this year, and not just by opposing defenses. He's been the primary target for blame during a disappointing 3-5 start to the season, a start which raised concerns about whether he and the offense were even capable of turning things around.

And that's why his semi-breakout performance on Sunday against the Lions is worth highlighting. The Bears won, 20-13, and Trubisky was a big reason why. It's the first time all year that that can be said for this team after a win.

He finished the game 16-of-23 for 173 yards and three touchdowns. He was in command of the offense and threw the ball with more confidence and accuracy than at any point this year.
