The Bears offense will welcome the healthy return of quarterback Mitch Trubisky in Sunday's Week 7 game against the New Orleans Saints and must build momentum entering a critical stretch of their 2019 schedule.
At 3-2 and with several playoff-caliber opponents on the horizon, the Bears can't afford more of the same from Trubisky and the passing game, one that ranks 30th in the NFL. They'll need more from rookie running back David Montgomery, too, who's averaging just 3.3 yards per carry through his first five games as a pro.
Confidence is key in Chicago's quest for more production. And, look, if it takes winning an egg toss competition in practice in order for the offense to get a morale boost? So be it.
It's unclear in the video who tossed the winning egg. Ironically, or maybe fittingly, it wasn't one of the Bears' quarterbacks.
Trubisky has to take advantage of any touchdown opportunities he gets Sunday against the 10th-ranked Saints defense. Unlike the team's egg-tossing contest, Week 7's outcome may come down to his ability to make the clutch throw. Now's the time for him to prove he can get it done.
Otherwise, the Bears' season will become an omelette of doom, despair and disappointment.Click here to download the new MyTeams App by NBC Sports! Receive comprehensive coverage of the Bears.
