The Chicago Bears owe their former quarterback a big, fat "thank you."
The Pittsburgh Steelers' last two games against the Arizona Cardinals and New England Patriots had major implications for the Bears, who are competing for the 2024 No. 1 overall draft pick by way of the Carolina Panthers.
With Mitch Trubisky in for an injured Kenny Pickett the last two weeks, the Steelers' dropped back-to-back games against two of the worst teams in the league, putting both the Cardinals and Patriots two games above the 1-11 Panthers in the standings. That two-game cushion will be crucial in helping the Bears' secure the No. 1 pick.
