The Chicago Bears are one of the biggest surprises of the NFL through 10 weeks, and a lot of credit is due to the play of second-year quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.

Trubisky has engineered an offense that strikes in a variety of methods through the air. Much like how Doug Pederson popularized the run-pass option with 2017's Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles, fellow Andy Reid disciple Matt Nagy, now head coach of the Bears, has Chicago employing quick passes to open receivers underneath. But it's not the only way Chicago is moving the ball via the pass, with Trubisky averaging 2.66 seconds in time to throw, below the league average of 2.73 seconds through 10 weeks.

Trubisky has connected with targets at deeper levels by sitting back, surveying and firing. He can do this because his line is giving him plenty of time to work.

Chicago ranks fourth in QB pressure percentage at just 19.5 percent of attempts (60 total pressures) -- the three above him are all future Hall of Famers throwing behind the league's best lines: Drew Brees, Tom Brady and Ben Roethlisberger -- and he's been sacked just 18 times. One of those sacks in Week 8 happened because Trubisky was tripped up a yard behind the line while attempting to scramble. This line is doing a bang-up job of keeping defenders off the quarterback.
