Bears' Khalil Mack ruled out of Jets game with ankle injury

But his decision-making was, on the whole, sound against the Jets.

In the last four: 23 catches for 350 yards. Trubisky isn't there yet, but he showed some maturity in this game. That running ability remains an asset, especially while he's struggling with his accuracy, especially on deep balls. This is the one Todd Bowles cares about most.

"It's like a dream scenario for one of the screens that you can get him on like that", quarterback Mitch Trubisky said.

But a final line of 16/29 for 220 yards, two touchdowns, no interceptions and a passer rating of 102.7 is pretty good.

Two of Parkey's three misses have come from between 40 and 49 yards.

Despite optimism he would be available in Week 8, the 27-year-old pass rusher is one of the Bears' inactive players for Sunday's clash at Soldier Field against the 3-4 Jets.

Cohen's six offensive touches were his second-fewest of the season (five vs. Seattle), but his 18.3-yard average per touch, including a 70 yard touchdown on his only reception, made him far more unsafe than he is running the ball 12-to-15 times between the tackles. But Sunday was, at least, an overall positive game for him.

Last week, Bears coach Matt Nagy said the Jets' Buster Skrine might be the best slot cornerback in the NFL.

According to NFL Next Gen Stats, Cohen got up to a max speed of 21.42 miles per hour on his 70-yard touchdown catch, the fastest by any running back on a play this season. He had 22 carries.

Should Bucs shop Jameis Winston at trade deadline?
With Fitzpatrick leading the offense, the Bucs tied the game in the final minute, only to lose on a last-second field goal. The Buccaneers tried to ride Fitzpatrick's hot hand even after the 2015 No. 1 pick returned from the suspension.

Trubisky's 70-yard touchdown pass is the longest by a Bears passer since Jay Cutler threw an 83-yard TD to Jeremy Langford in Week 10 of the 2015 season at the Rams.

Wide receiver Allen Robinson is also out for the Bears.

And through their first four games, it seemed as though that was true.

The Bears' running backs were a B+.

The Bears improved to eighth in the National Football League in third-down defense after Sunday's 24-10 victory over the Jets, and they should only improve if they continue putting opposing quarterbacks in tough spots. This game is the one of developing young Sam Darnold. But stopping the run was goal No. 1 for the Bears' defensive line, and they accomplished that on Sunday. Leonard Floyd did have a good pressure up the middle on a second and 10 midway through the second quarter, but that was the only notable bit of pass rushing this unit had. It was a particularly strong showing considering the pass rush was mostly quiet.

The front seven on defense was excellent with Akiem Hicks dominating early and Eddie Goldman and Roy Robertson-Harris solid all day long, and both Roquan Smith and Danny Trevathan playing solid 60-minute games. The Jets converted only 3 of 14 third downs.

Since then, Mack has not recorded a sack while recording just three tackles altogether.

Kyle Fuller also once again played at an extremely high level, but a huge mental mistake by Eddie Jackson resulted in a roughing call that helped set up the Jets only touchdown, dropping the secondary from an A- to a B.

"It was a insane call to me because I'm not anticipating the guy to drop the ball", Jackson said. "But it was a insane call". Safety Adrian Amos was draped on tight end Chris Herndon on the next third down, another incompletion. Howard kept the offense on the field in the second half by delivering some punishing runs between the tackles.
