Two of the most talked-about second-year quarterbacks in the NFL, Pat Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs and Mitch Trubisky of the Chicago Bears, will be in the spotlight on Saturday when their teams face off in a National Football League Week There preseason showdown — but will either quarterback actually take the field in the game that will live stream from the Windy City? At least one is expected to sit out the action.
In fact, according to ESPN, the decision by new Chicago Head Coach Matt Nagy to rest Trubisky on Saturday was unexpected, as the Bears — who won only five games last season on their way to a last-place finish in the NFC North — are still in the process of installing a new offensive system.
In addition, because the Bears took part in the annual NFL Hall of Fame Game, the Week 3 contest is the team’s final preseason game of the year — meaning that if Trubisky doesn’t have the new system mastered already, his next chance will not come until September 9 when the Bears open their season against the Green Bay Packers, according to USA Today.
But the team assures its fan base in a Twitter posting on Friday that the starters had just completed their “best week of practices so far in 2018.”

In playing against Nagy, Mahomes will be facing the coach who helped develop him as a rookie last season when the new Bears boss was offensive coordinator for the Chiefs, as Yahoo! Sports reported.
“One of the neat things about all these, the quarterback position in general, is there are so many guys that are different in regards to how they handle themselves,” Nagy told Yahoo!. “Patrick’s more of a guy that’s going to show more of his competitiveness out on the field. It’s going to show in a good way, he has a great balance of understanding the confidence that he has not only in himself but in his teammates and his coaches.”
