The Chicago Bears fell to 1-3 on Thursday night, this after suffering a 35-14 loss to their NFC North rivals the Green Bay Packers.
After watching his offense fail to produce for a second straight week, Bears head coach John Fox has opted to make a change at quarterback.
The team announcement Monday that rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky would be replacing Mike Glennon as the Bears starting quarterback.
“He’s got that maturity and confidence you have to have in that position,” Fox said. “We didn’t give ourselves a chance in two games. We have to change that.”
Glennon went 93 of 140 (66.4 percent) for 833 yards, four touchdowns and five interceptions in four games as started this season for Chicago.
Meanwhile, Trubisky completed nearly 70 percent of his passes for 3,748 yards, 30 touchdowns and six interceptions during his 13 games as starter for the North Carolina Tar Heels last season in college.
The Bears will face off against the Minnesota Vikings (2-2) next week on Monday Night Football.
