The stats weren't exactly pretty.
In his first game back from a shoulder injury that kept him out for two weeks, Mitch Trubisky struggled in the Bears' 15-6 win over the LA Rams.
His final numbers left a bit to be desired: 16-30 for 110 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions - good for a 33.3 rating that wasn't even the worst QB rating of the night. Was a cold night -- the temperatures hovered in the high-20's all night -- partially to blame?
"I don't know. I wouldn't say the cold affected me at all," Trubisky said. "Not playing two weeks, I don't know if that affected tonight. I know it definitely sucked being out for me mentally. I think I just need to be better all the way around."
While he admitted that he felt a good bit of adrenaline and anxiety heading into the game, Trubisky wouldn't divert blame anywhere but himself.
"Yeah, I'm pretty disappointed in myself, the way that I played, especially being out two weeks," he said. "I mean, it's hard to be down when you get such a big win like that. You got to put your own selfish thoughts about how you played aside. Did you play well, play bad? It's a bad thing about yourself. We got such a huge team win."
For his part, head coach Matt Nagy admitted he'd seen better games from the 2nd-year QB. A 33.3 QBR might be ugly, but a W over the best team in football is anything but.
"When you look at it numbers-wise, I think there were some throws -- some of the interceptions sailed on him," Nagy said. "It wasn't his best game. You know, what I told him, I said, who cares. We're about winning games."
"In the end, do I care? Can we be better as an offense? Yes. Do I care about numbers? Not one bit."
