Bears QB Trubisky shows progress against Bengals

(TSX / STATS) -- CINCINNATI -- One way for Chicago Bears rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky to measure the improvements he has made in recent weeks is the level of trust his teammates give him in the huddle during games and in practice.

"I get feedback from my teammates," Trubisky said. "I can tell they're confident in me. I know how to prepare. I feel like my play is getting better each week. I just needed to go out and execute."

As the losses mounted during a five-game losing streak, there were plenty of doubts. The Bears' offense had produced fewer than 300 yards combined over the past two games. On Sunday afternoon at Paul Brown Stadium, however, Trubisky took advantage of a banged-up Cincinnati Bengals defense and produced his best game since taking over the starting role in Week 5.
