Mitch Trubisky compared to Lamar Jackson after epic rushing touchdown vs Cowboys
Mitch Trubisky showed another aspect of his skill set for the Chicago Bears as they dominated the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday night.
The Bears quarterback put in arguably his best performance of the season for the NFC North team to lead them to a 31-21 win and see them move to 7-6 in the process.
Trubisky has been criticised several times since joining the Bears but his play has certainly improved in recent weeks.
On Thanksgiving Day he threw for 338 yards and three touchdowns, including a game-winner with just over two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter at the Detroit Lions.

But against the Cowboys he stepped things up another notch and looked good in doing so.
After going down 7-0 early to Jason Garrett’s team at Soldier Field, the Bears took over the scoring to go 24-7 up after three quarters.
Trubisky threw for a couple of touchdowns during that spell but it was his rushing score that really caught the eye.
The 25-year-old ran 25 yards from a first down all the way into the end zone after bypassing several Cowboys defenders along the way.
