The Steelers’ second-ranked defense is relishing a shot at slowing down Jacksonville running back Leonard Fournette on Sunday.

It appears the Minnesota Vikings will have their starting quarterback back under center on Monday night against the Chicago Bears.

This game will feature the debut of Chicago Bears rookie quarterback Mitch Trubisky.


The keys to success for Trubisky are clear and simple. In his one game of the 2017 season, the 2008 Heisman Trophy victor completed 27 of 32 passes for 346 yards, 3 touchdowns and a quarterback rating of 143.0.

In two games against the Bears past year, he completed 68.6-percent of his passes for 478 yards, four touchdowns and one interception, losing the first matchup before winning the second in Week 17.

The Chicago Bears host the Minnesota Vikings to wrap up Week 5 of National Football League action. The Bears through so much of Trubisky that they traded up one spot to get him in last April's draft, and will now hand the keys to the franchise over to him.


Bradford has been out with a knee injury since a huge Week 1 performance, but he did get some practice reps this week and may go.

Keenum started nine games last season as a member of the Los Angeles Rams, before he was replaced in favor of 2016 first-overall pick, Jared Goff. After throwing for 346 yards and three touchdowns in Week 1, the quarterback has been out of action with a left knee injury.
