It's been nearly two years since the Chicago Bears last won back-to-back games, last accomplishing the feat in Weeks 16 and 17 of the 2021 season.
But coming off a dominant and surprising victory over the Las Vegas Raiders a week ago, Matt Eberflus & Co. will attempt to end that streak during primetime in Week 8 against the Los Angeles Chargers.
With Justin Fields out of the lineup nursing a thumb injury, rookie quarterback Tyson Bagent, who went undrafted out of Division II Shepherd University, led three touchdown drives in his NFL debut to lead the Bears to a 30-12 win.
While admittedly nervous, the 23-year-old West Virginian didn't look it as he completed 21 of 29 passes for 162 yards, throwing one touchdown and zero interceptions.
It certainly helped that the Bears' running game was on point as well, an attack led by D'Onta Foreman, who rushed for 89 yards on 16 carries and scored twice on the ground. Foreman was also the recipient of Bagent's first NFL touchdown pass.
With Fields out for at least another week, Bagent will now get to showcase his skills in front of a national audience against the 2-4 Chargers, who are essentially in a must-win situation following a 14-point loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 7.
